Nokia just announced 3 smartphones, following are the links to the details and pricing of these Android phones:
All the three smartphones from Nokia have got the actual Android OS modified and called as the Nokia X platform, and it’s the Lumia-like body with the tile interface, but you would be able to run any Android app with ease. The Indian pricing of the Nokia X, X+ and the XL is as follows, based on the conversion rate for the price announced in Europe.
Nokia X India Price: Rs. 7500
Nokia X+ India Price: Rs. 8300
Nokia XL India Price: Rs. 9200
Keep in mind that these prices are not officially announced, but are based on the conversion from the European pricing which was announced at the MWC 2014 event.
The new teaser from Nokia for the MWC 2014 event hints at the Nokia’s Android phone which is being rumored since a long time, and the name for that is probably Nokia X, as the image represents. After the leaks by Evleaks and the MWC event invitation by Nokia, the fact is confirmed that Nokia is finally bringing the Android OS in its smartphones.
Nokia X is officially now called as the Nokia X A110, called earlier as Nokia Normandy has been sighted at an online retailer with a price tag of around $110 with the Windows Phone design. The online retailer, Vietnamese came up with some specification along with the pricing of the device which will be coming in the mid range section.
According to the post online by the retailer, the Nokia X A110, or famously known as Nokia Normandy will be running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box and will be powered by a 1 GHz Dual core processor coupled with a 512 MB of RAM. The device will have a 5 MP shooter at its rear with 2592 x 1944 pixels. The on board memory given to the device is at 4 GB and it can be extended up to 32 GB via micro SD card slot. Nokia X A110 will support A-GPS and have the connectivity’s like Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot and Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP. These are specifications given in the spec list by the online retailer.
With all these new popping up we can expect Nokia X A110 to be unveiled at the MWC event that is going to start from 24th of this month and am pretty much excited to lay my hands on this Android powered Nokia device. However all the services to this handset will be provided by Nokia or Microsoft will time will only tell if it will be using the Google Play Store for its apps in the future.
Earlier - Nokia X Android Smart Phone could launch at MWC 2014 – Reports – February 11,2014
The Rumored Noxia X (Normandy) which is said to be the successor of the Asha series, is apparently preparing for a launch at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, according to the Wall Street Journal. Earlier we saw the leaks of the device, with images showing its hardware and the software also. This Android powered Nokia device is going to feature the Microsoft’s services not the Google services lacking all the apps from the Google Play.
This low cost device from Nokia has been a new from quite a long time now which will apparently come in 6 different colors and also with Dual SIM connectivity. We have already got the specifications of this device but not having proper evidence. Stay tuned for more information and updates as we are heading to the MWC 2014 to bring you live updates.
Earlier - Nokia X Android Smart Phone on Android 4.1 with 3MP Camera Appeared on CamSpeed – Details – February 7,2014
Nokia X (Normandy) has come into the news once again, it has appeared on the CamSpeed database, a benchmark test of Sofica and came out with a pretty good score that indicated a fixed focus camera on the back with the focusing time is almost zero. This device is said to be running on Android but we are not sure of the version, and can be coming out with Android 4.1 Operating System due to its mid range specifications.
This Android powered device from Nokia is said to have a 5 MP camera on its back but the resolution used for the CamSpeed test was 3 MP. The device should also be a dual-SIM version (RM-980, Malaysian certification) and should have a 512 MB of RAM along with 4 GB of ROM that can be extendable using a microSD card and also a battery of 1500 mAh to power the device that appeared on the CamSpeed. The Nokia Normandy (Nokia X) will be coming in six different color variants and it mainly targeted to the teens.
Nokia has also postponing the plans of unveiling the device at the MWC after Samsung decided its plan of unveiling its Galaxy S5 in the expo timeframe. This device is expected to be come as a part of the Asha family but we have no idea when Nokia X will be unveiling itself. This handset will be the first device Android device from Nokia but with some high modifications. We should wait and see when this device is going to coming in front of us and hopefully it should be soon.
Earlier - Nokia’s Android Phone Codenamed Normandy (Nokia X) – Leaked via Benchmark – January 29,2014
The Browsermark 2 benchmark database now shows an Android smartphone from Nokia which recently took a test, and it’s the RM-980 modeled device, the same design which has been leaked in the past few weeks, which makes it one more step closer to the confirmation that the Nokia Normandy Android smartphone is nothing fake.
A vietnamese website from an online retailer has listed a few specifications of the Nokia X, or Normandy, whatever you like to call it because nothing is official for now. According to the details given there, the Nokia X will have a 4-inch FWVGA display, a Dual-core 1 GHz processor, 5-megapixel rear camera, Android 4.4 KitKat OS. So, we are back to the early days of Android, when the Samsung Galaxy S had the same specs. Still, nothing is official but these specs can be easily believed.
It was just the leaks with the leaked images and screenshots earlier to this, but now finally there are a few leaks of the prototype of Normandy, the Android phone from Nokia. Whether Nokia is really working on the Android OS, is still a question, but these leaks already give an indication that something exciting is soon coming into the scene.
An Android screen designed by Nokia, many would have dreamed of this (not exaggerating but there are many Nokia fans), and Evleaks have now shown the leaked pictures of the Normandy Android phone from Nokia which shows how the Android phone from Nokia would look like, with the Android interface. It doesn’t really look like most of the other Android interfaces, but that’s how Nokia might have been planning to do it – taking inspiration from the Windows Phone OS.
The presence of just a single bottom button and nothing else still confuses on how Nokia is planning about it, but the other things look pretty cool. Let’s see where this is headed to.
Earlier by Pavan:
Nokia had been working around a Android powered phone even though Microsoft is in the process to acquire the company’s handset business. According to multiple sources that are familiar with the company’s plans “Nokia is developing its own Android phone”, which has been codenamed “Normandy” internally. Though the codename would be changed to something else once the product is released.
Well known Twitter leakster @evleaks revealed the rumored Nokia Normandy’s Photo in the last month when nothing much was known about the device. The mysterious phone is likely to be an Asha device due to lack of hardware shutter button, capacitive buttons and LED flash in it, intending for budget-minded users as a low end phone lacking even the basic Smartphone hardware like a GPS radio or 3G data, but supposed to be running Android applications like Skype, and other popular apps. This is a forked version of Android, which means that it won’t be associated with Google services and would be more like the Amazon’s Kindle Fire device and there wont be any official play store but Nokia would be able to customize it to the max.
It is unclear whether Nokia will release the handset before the deal is finalized with Microsoft, though the device was designed and planned before the acquisition began. Multiple sources claim that the phone is due for a release in 2014. One insider said that the project will complete and Normandy will be released, describing its status as “full steam ahead.” It is also reported that the version of Android used in the phone is heavily customized and modified.
All the people are excited about Nokia’s Normandy, but the question arising is whether Nokia would rely on a third party application store or set up its very own or link to their current stores or worse will it be even released?
The Microsoft Nokia deal was approved by the US department of Justice and the European Commission a week ago and Microsoft still doesn’t hold any real power over Nokia’s decision until the merge is final. Microsoft won’t be effected by the release of this phone at large, because Nokia’s devices in the market will run Windows in the immediate future too.
We are pretty much excited about this news because after years of wait, finally there is some news around Nokia and Android and we have been hearing from thousands of users who had voted for this combination. Would you buy one of these device if they are made available? Let us know.
