Rumour: Nokia X Android Phone a Super-Cheap Budget Model

By Gary Cutlack on at

New specs have appeared giving us a look inside the Nokia X Android model, suggesting it'll be a very low-spec budget phone. Conspiracy theorists might even suggest Nokia's making a rubbish Android phone on purpose, to make its WP models look better in comparison.

According to popular and usually on-the-ball Twitter news source EVLeaks, the Nokia X or Normandy model is powered by a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, operating alongside a tight 512MB of RAM. That's not only a budget phone spec, its a 2012-level budget phone spec.

The leaker also claims the Nokia X will appear with a 4-inch display, as previously rumoured, with a low-but-workable 800 x 480 resolution. A 5-Megapixel camera and 1,500mAh battery make up the rest of it. It all sounds a bit "emerging markets only" to us. [EVLeaks]
