Nokia Normandy spotted on retailer website without Nokia X name

The Nokia Normandy has been listed on a huge Vietnamese retail site, without the hot tipped Nokia X name.

The Normandy listing on The, the largest Vietnamese retailer, shows the same Lumia-esque smartphone as seen in the pictures leaked online as late.

The heavily rumoured first Nokia Android device is supposed to be called the Nokia X, so it’s bizarre that the Vietnamese listing would use the device’s codename rather than the official launch title.

However, the listing provides further evidence that the Nokia Android phone is due to launch imminently – potentially as soon as MWC 2014 in February.

According to the retail listing, the Nokia X Android phone will come with a 4-inch 480 x 854p resolution and run on a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon 200 processor with 512MB of RAM.

It will also reportedly come with 4GB of internal storage with a microSD slot supporting cards up to 32GB.

Dual-SIM is also offered, although we imagine it won’t come as a feature for UK consumers.

The listing also suggests it’ll offer a 5-megapixel rear camera and Bluetooth connectivity.

What’s most important about the Nokia Normandy listing is the reference to Google services within the somewhat limited specs sheet.

Google Play, Google Search, Google Now, Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube and Google Calendar support are all featured in the Nokia Normandy listing, suggesting the device is definitely an Android device.

The specs also suggest the Nokia X will be compatible with the Android 4.4 KitKat OS, which has been specially designed to run on smartphone with RAM offerings as low as 512MB.

Although the specs don’t really scream wow factor, we assume it will be a more affordable Android option come launch.

The Vietnamese listing also doesn’t mention a release date or an indication of price, but hopefully we’ll learn more if and when it is unveiled at MWC.
