Nokia’s rumoured budget Android smartphone, thought to be codenamed Normandy, has been in the news for months now, with leaked images hitting the Internet on a regular basis, along with speculated availability and specifications.
Now @evleaks has claimed that Nokia’s only Android phone might be launched as the Nokia X. The popular phone tipster’s tweet reads, “Project Normandy = Nokia X.” It is noteworthy that in the past, @evleaks has come out with fairly accurate information regarding yet-to-be-announced devices and we will not be surprised if he manages to hit the bull’s eye even with Nokia’s alleged Android phone.
Unfortunately, there are no details except the alleged Nokia X name which the tipster claims will be Normandy’s final name.
Earlier, phone tipster @evleaks had posted a pair of screenshot which it claimed to show the alleged Nokia Normandy’s UI. The leaked screenshots of the Normandy’s UI purportedly reveals the home screen and the notifications page. Notably, the home screen panel’s leaked screenshot included apps for dialler, message, contacts, internet, Twitter, Skype, MixRadio, Here Maps, Camera app, Plants Vs. Zombies, Gallery, Vine, Facebook, Calculator, Calendar, Alarms, Music, Downloads, Radio, Viber, Opera and WeChat. It’s worth pointing out that the home screen of the alleged Normandy looked very similar to the tiles-based UI seen on Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices.
In addition, the leaked home screen panel of Normandy also included the BBM app which points to the device actually running Android version (BBM is not on Windows Phone, and won’t be, for the near future), however, there are no credible reports on the Android version as of now.
We have already seen the alleged Nokia X aka Normandy in images supporting dual-SIMs and Wi-Fi.
Prior to this, the alleged Nokia X, though to be codenamed Nokia Normandy was leaked in a render that purportedly revealed the device in multiple colours. The leaked render showed the rumoured Nokia X in six colour variants, including Black, Cyan, Green, Red, White and Yellow.
