Nokia X aka Normandy Android Smartphone Benchmark spotted
The mysterious Nokia X has again emerge, but this time on a benchmark site Rightware.com. The handset that has been making a fuss in the tech world with rumors and leaks, is touted to be called Nokia X. The first Android smartphone by Nokia now seems to be getting closer to its launching and its appearance on Benchmark site is really showing that the device is real and almost ready.
Now the device has appeared on the Benchmark site with a codename RM-980 and this is not first time the device appeared on a benchmark site, a few weeks ago the alleged Android smartphone named Nokia A110 was shown up on the famous Antutu benchmark and the both smartphone should be the same one unless Nokia plans multiple Android devices at the same time.
The device has a browsermark of 1898, indicating a mid-end device in the work even though this is not a definitive proof for its existence.
Early leaked specification details are also indicating a mid-end smartphone. If you haven’t yet known the specification details of the Nokia X aka Normandy, The Nokia X is expected to pack a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor on a a Snapdragon 200 8225Q chipset, 4.0-inch WVGA display with 800 x 480 resolution and 1,500mAh battery.
Spec-wise, the device is far from many high-end smartphone out there. Nokia must be targeting entry-level smartphone market with its new device and could replace the Asha with the new Android series. Nokia might be trying to offer two major platforms under its umbrella at the same time and this could be Nokia’s strategy to regain its past glory in the smartphone market while keeping high-end Windows Phone smartphone on the other side that gives customers more options to choose from, so that Nokia will not lose a business. However, we can’t completely confirm this device’s existence, but all these rumors and leaks definitely indicate Nokia’s interest in Android OS and it is not completely allergic to the OS.
