Nokia’s X A110 Normandy smartphone has been making headlines for months now and we’re seeing more hints that the company is really planning to launch an Android device after being committed to WP for a couple years. Even with the giant’s devices business in the process of being transferred over to Microsoft, new information has surfaced providing a possible price for the said handset.
According to an online retailer, the Nokia X A110 Normandy will go on sale for just about $110. This price is for the unlocked and SIM-free model, which makes it even cheaper than the Moto G from Motorola. Well, the listing has been taken down, but WMPoweruser has managed to grab all of the details.
The Nokia X A110 Normandy is expected to come with a forked version of Android 4.4 KitKat. The device will sport a custom UI that’s quite similar to the one in the WP8 platform. Additionally, the handset will offer apps for download through the Nokia store instead of Google Play. All leaks and rumors point the smartphone to be an entry-level option and it could join the Asha lineup.
Here’s a detailed look at the specs:
– Android 4.4KitKat
– 4-inch 480 x 854p display
– 1GHz dual core Snapdragon 200 processor
– 512MB of RAM, 4GB storage
– Dual SIM support
– 1500mAh battery
– 5MP rear camera
In recent news, the company has switched its color theme from blue to green. The change has taken place across the Finnish giant’s social networking accounts on Facebook and Twitter amongst others. Call us crazy, but the MWC invite also had a green theme, both suggesting that the company is prepping itself for its first Android device. At $110, the Nokia X A110 Normandy could be a great success, then again, the lack of Google service could lead to its demise.
