Nokia X Normandy, Nokia’s Android Phone, May Launch this Month

The acquisition of Nokia by Microsoft might be a done deal already, but, the Finnish company is set to release their first ever Android powered device, the Nokia X a.k.a. Normandy this month, during the 2014 Mobile World Congress happening in Barcelona, Spain.

But, the phone is of course carrying all terms according to Microsoft, as the Nokia X is said to ship without Google Play support (just like the whole Kindle line by Amazon), but instead Nokia’s very own app store. This means there will be no Google apps for the Android-powered Nokia phone, instead, the Nokia X will feature apps that are crafted by Nokia and Microsoft such as Bing Search, Nokia Maps and Outlook.

The Nokia X will also feature a heavily skinned UI that is said to very much resemble the Windows Phone OS. Specs wise, we’re expecting a 4 inch WVGA display powered by a Snapdragon processor with 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of built-in storage.

As for pricing, this Nokia Android phone codenamed Normandy is said to come with a price tag in line of the Asha devices, so we’re looking at $100 to $150 (or Php 4,500 to Php 7,000). [via]
