Even as launch day for the much talked about Android based Nokia X approaches, the phone has been caught in live shots. The pictures of the device have been leaked online and show a Windows-Phone flavoured Android running on the device which has been codenamed Normandy.
Website Coolxap has a bunch of pictures of the Nokia X up, giving us a better glimpse into the phone’s colourful UI and build. The phone itself looks quite a lot like a Windows Phone but is slightly more bulky and not too sleek, given that the phone is aimed at the low-end segment, catering to Asha users.
The user interface of the phone is the most interesting of the leaks, though. Given how since the time the leaks started appearing, the attention was on the UI, the leaks do not disappoint, showing a tile-based interface. The phone will indeed be running Android 4.4 KitKat but a forked version of it, something like what Amazon uses for its Kindle Fire devices. A “Store” icon is clearly seen in the leaked images, confirming that Nokia will have its own version of the App Store for the phone rather than let Google Play run on it.
The Nokia X is all set to be revealed at the Mobile World Congress, to be held at Barcelona next week. The phone is being heavily teased by Nokia too, which released an image of four black arrows making one big “X” on the Android green colour.
The dual-SIM phone is set to be priced somewhere around $110 or Rs 6,800 if leaks are to be believed. Nokia X will come with a 512MB RAM and 4GB on onboard storage. It will also feature a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor and a 5-megapixel rear camera. Here’s all you need to know about the Nokia X or Normandy before the Finnish company officially announces the device at MWC.
