FINNISH PHONE MAKER Nokia's rumoured Android phone, codenamed Nokia Normandy, is likely to be branded the Nokia X.

That's according to @evleaks, which tweeted a brief message on Thursday revealing the name.

Evleaks didn't reveal any new details about the device, but thanks to a stream of online leaks we already know about all there is to know about the device.

Expected to launch at Nokia's Mobile World Congress (MWC) press conference next month, the supposed Nokia X will be a low-end device. It's expected to launch as a replacement for the firm's existing Asha feature phone line, which according to the Finnish firm's latest quarterly financial report hasn't been flying off the shelves.

The Nokia X is expected to feature a 4in display powered by a Qualcomm S4 processor and Nokia's forked version of Google's Android mobile operating system. This, according to leaks, will offer a Windows Phone style, tile based user interface and Nokia's usual portfolio of custom apps.

The device is also expected to feature a 3MP rear-facing camera and 4GB of internal storage that will be expandable via microSD card. The Nokia X is also likely to look similar to Nokia's present Lumia Windows Phone designs, with the handset expected to launch in a number of various colours.

There's no word on a release date or pricing details for the Nokia X yet, although it's likely to be priced below £200.

We'll be at Nokia's press conference at MWC, so check back then for all the latest. µ
