Tweet leaks Nokia X press shot

Press release   •   Feb 18, 2014 18:54 GMT

A tweet has leaked the press shot of the Nokia X, Nokia’s rumoured budget handset that runs Android. This suggests that Nokia is getting ready to lift on the handset.

The tweet in question comes from none other than @evleaks, a Twitter account notorious for leaking information about unreleased devices. On its Twitter page, it posted the press shot, showing the Nokia X flying around and the words “Nokia X” on top. This supposedly confirms what the Finnish is planning to call the phone when launched, making “Normandy” its internal codename.

Previous reports are saying that the Nokia X will target emerging markets and teens with its pocket-friendly price tag. Specs include a 4-inch display, either a 5-megapixel or 3-megapixel camera, and an assortment of colour options. It is said to run a custom version of Android, with features from Asha and Windows Phone thrown in. There is a debate among experts on what version of Android will be running the device. Some say it will run Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) some say it will run Android 4.4 (KitKat). Although the Nokia X runs Android, reports are saying that it will not offer users access to Google services.

When do we get to see the Nokia X? The Finnish firm is expected to lift the lid on the handset in MWC 2014, which kicks off in Barcelona on the 24th of February (next week). Keep it here for further updates.
