The Nokia Android phone known as the Nokia X or the codename ‘Normandy’ has been rumoured for a while, and according to WMPowerUser the phone was listed on their website – albeit briefly, because it’s now removed – for 2.2-2.5Million Vietnamese Dong or around AUD$114-$130.
The leak also lists much of the specs but as usual @evleaks has come through with a tiny bit more information about the device, specifically the arrangement that the Nokia X will use to get Apps:
Nokia X: Snapdragon (1GHz x2), 4" WVGA, 512MB/4GB (+microSD), 5MP, 1500mAh, Android apps from Nokia Store + 3rd-party stores. Six colors.

A choice of six colours, $114-$130? I’m in, now to see if it has an unlockable bootloader and hope the phone gains traction in the ROM scene.
The phone is rumoured to be announced along with some Windows Phone Lumia products at the Nokia Press event scheduled on the 24th of February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain. Check your local times here and we’ll advise as soon as we know about any streaming details for the event :
