Nokia to Launch its First Android Phone Later This Month


Nokia has plans to launch a long-rumoured Android phone later this month at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, reported Wall Street Journal.

Phone is widely reported to be aimed at low-end segment of the developing markets.

Report said that Nokia X – code named Normady – will come with a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 4-inch WVGA screen, 512MB of memory, 4GB of storage, and a microSD card slot.

It will reportedly sport a 5MP camera, a 1,500mAh battery, along with dual-SIM option.

Speculations say that Nokia won’t allow the “Play Store” access to this phone, instead Microsoft and Nokia developed services – such as Here maps and Mix Radio — will be offered along with Nokia’s own store with popular Android Apps, such as Skype, Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp etc..

Nokia X will Finally change Nokia’s decision for not going Android. Company remained committed to Windows Phone operating system for its high-end smartphones.

However, we have seen Nokia testing various other home-grown operating systems for its low-end phones for developing markets. Android on a low-end phone from Nokia seems in-line with this long-running policy.

Nokia’s hardware run by Android phone would be an interesting proposition. This may not only revive the brand, which was sold to Microsoft last year, but may also help result into faster adoption of smartphones in developing markets, especially if phone is priced well.

    dual-core 1GHz, 512MB of memory? Now all depends on GPU… I guess nokia is still trying to experiment by bringing a low-end device.

  • A million doller question! Will it be a real android or only compatible with android apps?
