Almost everything about the Nokia X, from its design to specifications, to price, is known thanks to the many leaks, but what about the custom Android interface it sports? We’ve already seen the UI in leaked images and the latest pictures provide even more details about the software.
The Finnish giant has apparently designed the Nokia X Android UI to look a lot like the tile interface seen in the Windows Phone 8 platform. The images posted by Nowhereelse indicate that various services from the OEM will be preloaded. They include Nokia Music, Here Maps and Store. Even through Android 4.4 KitKat runs the show here, you won’t find any Google services pre-loaded.
In one of the images, the option to re-size tiles is also provided. The Nokia X UI certainly brings a fresh look to Android and you can be sure that someone in the developer community will find a way to port it over to other devices. Design-wise, the Nokia X will look like an Asha handset and it will have entry-level specifications. The phone will sport a 4-inch display and it will be powered by a 1GHz dual core processor from the Snapdragon lineup.
Here are the key features of the handset:
– Android 4.4 KitKat
– 1GHz Snapdragon processor, dual core
– 512MB RAM
– 4GB storage with microSD card slot
– 4-inch WVGA touchscreen
– 5MP rear camera
We’re just two days away from the Nokia X A110 Normandy going official. The company will unveil the smartphone at the MWC 2014 on Monday. The handset is expected to sell for $110.
