It’s consistently big information when Nokia announces a brand-new smartphone, and it’s looking increasingly likely that the Mobile Globe Congress in Barcelona on February 24th is readied to see a brand-new, budget handset sign up with Nokia’s expanding mobile phone ranks.


The Nokia X, also referred to as the Nokia X A110 or our beloved name – – the Nokia Normandy – is beginning to appear occasionally, with the most recent discovery of the new mobile phone coming through a Vietnamese online store. Initial seen by WMPoweruser, the seller had the Nokia Normandy readily available at a rate of around $ 110, which harmonizes the alreadying existing news that the unannounced phone will certainly be aimed squarely at establishing markets instead of those power customers that smartphone makers have the tendency to want.

This budget-orientation makes good sense provided the truth that the Normandy is believed to be based on Google’s Android os instead compared to Nokia’s common option Windows Phone. Although Android is the os of selection here however, don’t anticipate to be able to access the Google Play Store using a Normandy – – services will rather be offered by Nokia or Microsoft efforts such as Skype and HERE charts. Thinking about the phone’s moderate prices though, that’s not most likely to be way too much of an issue.


Presently it’s looking considerably likely that the MWC seminar later on this month is when Nokia will unveil its new budget plan smartphone, and we’re sure more information will emerge just before that time. It’s most likely that the Normandy will fly under many people’s radar many thanks to its budget plan attributes, however the reality that Nokia is messing around in Android ought to not be understated. Could we soon see a Lumia-class mobile running Google’s newest and best? Time will mention to, but we understand we ‘d definitely such as to see equipment style like Nokia’s being combined with a delightfully stock version of Jelly Bean or later.

We could hope, anyway.

We’re simply a few days away from MWC and all the items of the puzzle will certainly be total when we hear just what Nokia has in store for us. It’s strongly likely that we’ll see a new Lumia or more at the activity, in addition to the elusive Nokia X / Normandy, or whatever you such as to call it.
