Nokia to release Normandy smartphone this month

February 2014 will be a big month for Nokia due to a simple fact – the Finnish company will debut an Android-based smartphone called Normandy (Nokia X) at the upcoming MWC 2014.

The Normandy will join the Asha family as a flagship smartphone and will be built around a 4-inch sensor display at WVGA resolution (800 x 480 pixels, 233 ppi). It will have a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor at 1 GHz and Adreno 203 graphics. The smartphone will also offer 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, a rear 5 MP camera, support for two SIM cards, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 1500 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Despite running Android and being a more budget-oriented device the Normandy will resemble some Nokia Lumia smartphones and will have a UI that will resemble Windows Phone. In addition the device will not support Google Play, instead relying on Nokia Store.

The pricing and official release date of the upcoming Nokia smartphone are still unknown.
