We have been encountering with the several rumours related to Nokia’s first Android smartphone, reportedly to be dubbed as Nokia X (codenamed Normandy) from past couple of months, but apart from some random speculations, there is hardly any concrete word regarding the exact launch schedule of the device till now.
Now looks like Nokia is done giving finishing touches to Normandy devices, and it’s ready to unveil the product in coming days. If a report published in the Wall Street Journal is to be believed, Nokia is planning to showcase the device at upcoming MWC exhibition in Barcelona later this month. Nokia is scheduled to held a press event in MWC, Barcelona on February 24 from 08:30 to 09:30 am local time, where it will most likely announce the Nokia X.
The report also reveals that Nokia Android smartphone will come pre-loaded with apps from Microsoft and Nokia, MixRadio streaming app and an app store by Nokia. There will obviously be no official support for Google Play or Google suite of Android applications.
However the report doesn’t reveal the innards of Nokia X, but some previous leaks claim that the device feature 4.3-inch WVGA display, dual-core processor, 5MP rear camera, front camera, Wi-Fi and forked version of Android 4.4 KitKat.
There is no word on its pricing and availability yet, but considering the specifications, the Nokia X is supposed to be a entry-level smartphone targeted at emerging markets including India.
