Another week, another Nokia Normandy rumor. Well, Nokia X rumor, because that’s what folks are starting to call this mystery Android phone that Nokia has apparently been working on for quite some time. Twitter account @evleaks had that much to share, but was also keen on letting us know what would be the silicon behind the scenes.

We’d already heard the device was being built to be budget friendly, but this list of specs (if true) would pretty much confirm that:

  • “2 x” 1GHz Snapdragon processor (dual core?)
  • 4-inch WVGA display (480 x 800)
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 4GB of internal storage w/ microSD
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • 1,500mAh battery
  • dual-SIM option

He also mentioned the device would be available in a total of 6 eye-popping colors, some of which we’ve already seen in previous leaks. One other interesting bit of information he dropped was that it’d have “Nokia Store + 3rd party.”

We’re not sure what this is supposed to mean, but it sounds like Nokia will be maintaining its own apps store, as well as possibly using another repository not named “Google Play.” Of course, we’ll have to wait for more juicy details to be dropped before we know what that’s all about.

With that, it’s worth mentioning that we’re still without a solid release date. In fact, we have no idea of Nokia is even planning on launching this thing anytime soon.

Previous rumors stated that rumors about the Nokia Normandy / Nokia X being canned are “greatly exaggerated,” but that didn’t exactly make the picture any more clear for those of us who’re still following this interesting journey. In any case, with how this phone is shaping up we imagine this won’t interest the hardcore lot of you out there, but it still has our attention regardless. Keep it tuned to Phandroid for all the latest on this peculiar device.
