Nokia X teaser

Nokia is preparing to launch its Android phone, codenamed Normandy, and the company is teasing it heavily today. The low-cost handset is expected to be named Nokia X when the Finnish smartphone maker unveils it next week, and today’s teaser image shows four black arrows all pointing to one location to form a green X. It’s consistent with the green theme that Nokia has used for its previous Mobile World Congress press invite, but it also matches similar coloring found on a leaked marketing image of the Nokia X.

Evleaks posted the image yesterday, alongside what appears to be the final branding for Nokia’s Android phone. Specifications have also been leaked, including a 4-inch display, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage. Nokia is expected to ship the X with just a 5-megapixel camera, further confirming suspicions it’s targeting the low end with this particular handset. The Nokia X is expected to run a "forked" version of Android that will support some popular apps alongside an app store for developers to port their existing Android apps across. Nokia is expected to unveil its X handset on February 24th at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
