On Monday, February 24, mobile phone maker Nokia should make official its first handset running under the Android operating system, and the company has already started sending out invitations to a webcast for the launch.The event will be streamed live on the Nokia Conversations blog, where a teaser image has already been published, pointing at the aforementioned device.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Nokia’s Android phone is expected to arrive on the market as Nokia X, something that has been confirmed in a recently leaked press photo with the device.
Nokia hasn’t provided a formal announcement on the matter as of now, but the aforementioned teaser image that was published on the Nokia Conversations blog appears to be pointing at Nokia X as well.
To be more precise, the image shows a big X on a green background, in line with some of the latest teasers that Nokia published online for the device.
“The Conversations team is getting ready for its annual trip to Barcelona for Mobile World Congress, the industry’s biggest and most important show,” a post on the aforementioned blog reads.
“To tune in and share the action, meet us here on Conversations on Monday February 24. We will be hosting the live stream from the Nokia press event right here on the blog.”
The MWC press event will kick off on February 24 at 8.30AM, Barcelona time (GMT+1), and those interested in learning more on the phone should make sure they tune in to Nokia Conversations at that moment.
Nokia X should land on shelves as an entry-level handset, featuring a 4-inch touchscreen display, a dual-core processor, and 512MB of RAM.
The handset is also expected to sport 4GB of internal memory, a 5-megapixel camera on the back, and the usual set of connectivity capabilities, while running under a forked version of Android, without Google’s services inside.
