The smartphone might arrive on shelves at around $110 (€81)
Nokia has been long rumored to plan the launch of an Android-based smartphone, called Nokia X, and it appears that we’re actually getting closer to the day when the device is officially announced.A certain Nokia X A110 handset can be seen listed at Vietnamese online retailer mainguyen with specs that match those of said phone and rumored to cost between 2.2 - 2.5 million VND, which would translate into around $110 (€81), as WMPoweruser notes.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Nokia X, also known under the codename of Normandy, is expected to make an official debut at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month, while set to hit shelves soon after.
However, the device hasn’t been officially confirmed as of now, and it remains to be seen whether Nokia will indeed announce it so soon.
Nokia X will be an entry-level device, and the hardware specifications that the aforementioned retailer lists for it prove that.
Apparently, Nokia will pack it with a 4-inch TFT screen capable of delivering a 480 x 854 pixels resolution, while including a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 MSM8225Q processor inside it, a post on techrum.vn notes.
Moreover, the handset is expected to hit shelves with only 512MB of RAM, as well as with 4GB of internal memory. A microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes will also be included inside the phone.
On the back, Nokia X is said to sport a 5-megapixel camera, most probably paired with a front one. Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi hotspot, and the like will also be featured.
According to the latest reports on the matter, Nokia X will arrive on shelves with the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system loaded on top right from the start.
Provided that the reports on the phone’s arrival at MWC pan out, it should not be too long before official info on it is provided, so stay tuned to learn the news.
