New Nokia X photos leaked online
Nokia X Android phone is ready to launch, new photos emerged
With Nokia press event set for February 24 at MWC 2014, we won’t wait long time to see the highly-anticipated Nokia X smartphone, which would be Nokia’s first Android-based model. Now, for the most impatient users there are new images of what is supposedly Nokia X (Normandy).
The Nokia X UI resembles Windows Phone and that’s pretty obvious when you see the home screen. In fact, the operating system is said to be a forked Android version, similar to the approach used from Amazon for its Kindle Fire tablets. From the software side, there are several apps that can be seen on the phone. A couple of basic apps are visible, as well as Nokia exclusive services such as Radio and HERE. Nokia X is not a Google certified model, so users have to use Nokia’s own app store for downloading Android apps. Similar to Windows Phone, users will be able to customize the app tiles by changing their sizes from small to big.
Nokia X design is a departure from the classic Lumia vision, though the phone is still Nokia. In fact, it is closer to the Asha line-up with these quite flat edges. According to the latest leaks, Nokia X is based on Android 4.4 KitKat. Fronted by a 4-inch display and powered by 1 dual-core processor running at 1 GHz, the X is a typical low-end device designed for the emerging markets. The phone will arrive in six different color versions, carrying a price tag below $200. The Finns have set its press event for February 24, so we will keep an eye out for the Nokia X announcement.
