This recent press image leaked by evleaks seems to put the Nokia X name into concrete. The device was code-named Normandy thus far and appears a low-end Android device bound for the Asha lineup next month.
The specs are expected to be a 4″ WVGA display, dual-core 1 GHz Snapdragon chip (perhaps Snapdragon 200), 512 MB of RAM, 5 MP camera, dual-SIM support and a 1,500 mAh battery.
Nokia would desperately need to win over developers if their Android phone is to succeed. Rumors so far have it that the phone is based on the Android source code but it won’t have any of Google’s services built in. This means there is no Play Store, so Nokia must create its own application repository. Nokia will also be substituting Google’s services for its own HERE Maps location services and Microsoft’s Bing, Outlook and Skype.
We last heard that a dev-version of the Nokia X is already being shipped to devs in India.
