Whispered about for months now and showcased in a series of leaks, it appears the legend of the Nokia Normandy could be finally made official later this month. According to The Wall Street Journal, Nokia is planning on unveiling their first this awkward Android device — dubbed the Nokia X — during Mobile World Congress in just a few short weeks.
We’re still reeling from the fact that this device could be more a simple concept or prototype, keep in mind that the Nokia X is said to be running a heavily forked version of Android for reasons unbeknownst to us. Because of the amount of heavy forking, don’t expect the usual suite of Google apps to accompany this device. Apparently, Nokia has their own plans for the Normandy, making specially designed apps for services like Facebook and Twitter.
One the spec front, you can expect the Normandy to storm the beaches of the low-end market with a 4-inch display, dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal storage, and a 5MP camera. As we’ve mentioned before, Phandroid will once again be in attendance for this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, so be on the lookout for additional coverage should this NX actually see the light of day.
