New Nokia X Android pictures leak ahead of MWC unveiling

Ahead of a widely expected MWC 2014 unveiling, the heavily rumoured Nokia X Android phone has been caught on camera yet again.

Tipped to mark Nokia’s first foray into the Android smartphone scene – shortly before the company is taken over by Microsoft – the Nokia X has been the subject of multiple leaks and rumours in recent weeks, with another promotional image of the handset now making a premature appearance.

Once again surfacing courtesy of the serial, Twitter-based tipster @evleaks, the latest Nokia X picture has showcased the green bodied entry-level handset from a number of angles.

With a slightly squat, boxy design, the Nokia X handset looks set to feature a form factor markedly similar to the existing Nokia Asha 503, a budget handset for emerging markets.

Although the latest Nokia X picture leak has failed to offer any new, concrete details on the phone, recent rumours have suggested the handset will be a true entry-level offering, with a compact 4-inch display paired with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 512MB of RAM.

With the handset’s display mooted to support a basic 800 x 480p resolution, further Nokia X specs tipped to feature include a 5-megapixel rear-mounted camera, 4GB of internal memory and the now massive outdated Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS.

The Nokia X is widely expected to be unveiled as the Finnish manufacturer’s first Android-powered handset during next Monday’s February 24 MWC 2014 press conference. The phone is believed to be heading for launch in a range of colours including red and green.
