Nokia X (Normandy) specs revealed to be entry-level
Likely aimed at first-time smartphone buyers, Nokia’s first Android features low-end hardware
The purported specifications for Nokia’s first Android smartphone have leaked online, pointing to an entry-level experience. According to @evleaks, the so-called Nokia X shares much of the hardware of the affordable Nokia Lumia 520. Details include a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon, 4-inch WVGA display, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, and a 5-megapixel rear camera. Juiced by a 1500mAh battery, the phone should come in dual-SIM variants and sell in up to six colors.

I would not be surprised if the Nokia line of Android devices featured pre-installed Nokia/Microsoft apps and services. As an entry-level smartphone it could give users enough to satisfy basic needs. Once a more powerful smartphone is called for, Nokia and Microsoft will likely position a Windows Phone in front of the user.
Should these specs prove accurate, and we think they will, the phone could be priced $50-$100 with a contract. We should find out all of the official details in the next few weeks; Nokia is expected to debut the Nokia X (formerly, Normandy) at Mobile World Congress in late February.
