We are quite sure that tomorrow at MWC event at Barcelona Spain,Nokia will officially announce their first smartphone with android operating system and its user interface will be still like windows 8, like tiles and all, We have een watching leaks and speculations about this smartphones for months now, that Nokia is going to release an Android powered smartphone, and it has came to reality, because all the leaked pictures make sense that Nokia X that is also known as normandy will be android powered. t The reports have pictured an almost complete image of the Nokia X, as we have seen leaked specs, press notices, and even Nokia teasers for the device.
New alleged photos of the budget Nokia smartphone have hit the web, giving us a better look at the smartphone’s user interface.
The smartphone you can see in the pictures above shows the same tile-based UI we have seen in previous leaks. There’s no doubt that the interface looks a lot like Microsoft’s Windows Phone, We are anxiously waiting for this smartphone, it is expected to be with a normal price tag, its not going to be very expensive, All those users who loved windows 8 UI and have windows launchers in their Android smartphones like me, are very excited about this smartphone.
As you can see there’s no sign of Google’s apps and services, which might be a confirmation for the rumors saying that Nokia X will not be a Google certified device. This means that the Finland-based phone maker will replace the Gapps package with their own and Microsoft’s apps and services. Therefore you should expect the device to arrive with Nokia HERE maps instead of Google Maps, a third-party browser instead of Chrome, and a Nokia-controlled app Store.
If the rumors prove true the Nokia X will be a budget smartphone whose main competitor will be Motorola’s Moto G. According to the latest reports, X might feature a 4-inch screen of unknown resolution, 512 MB of RAM, quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, 4 GB storage, microSD, 1,500 mAh battery, and 5 MP primary camera.
Nokia is trying their level best to stand in the line with Big smarthphone giants like Samsung Apple and HTC, For this they have and are trying every possible method, Now lets see how their experiment of introducing Android in Windows UI works, Sounds pretty interesting , but I wonder if this smartphone is going to give a strong comptettion to Moto G, As Motorola’s budget phone is quite famous among people these days and many people have bought it. Now the question is
Would you consider the Nokia X as your next budget smartphone given that it won’t come Google Play Store support?
