So we finally come up with the exact name for the first ever Nokia smartphone running Android based operating system. The device is to be called Nokia X. You might have heard lots of rumors about the Nokia Normandy project, but these rumours are of more legit reports now as one of our most credible spy source @evleaks has just published some User Interface images of the Nokia X smartphone running the Android OS despite the recent Acquisitions by Microsoft and their dedicated division for the mobile phone industry.
The source claims that it will be the latest Android OS version with Nokia’s very own Lumia style block interface overlay on top of it. The Nokia X will be a 4.3 inched display smartphone with expected HD resolution, but there are yet no specific specs sheet leaked yet. This leads us to an uncertain specs situation but the leaked images of the device points to wards the Dual-Sim smartphone as we can see two SIM icons on the top left of the UI screenshots.
All we have yet is this tweet shared by @evleaks and some info regarding their previous tweets about the Nokia Normandy project which is to be called Nokia X from now on. The best thing about this concept device is that Nokia didn’t went with all new interface but kept their very own Lumia Style structure and opted for a custom user interface which is their trademark and totally resembles the Windows Phone 8 UI. So in first looks no first looks no one going to find the difference unless we jump in to the settings and other features of the device.
Project Normandy = Nokia X

Beside the continuity of the Nokia Lumia series design will let users to have an Android device packed inside the trademark Nokia’s hardware and with the Windows Phone 8 User Interface. The device resembles to be the same Mid-Range Lumia phones but we can expect more such Android phones in some High-End category by Nokia.
The Nokia X is expected to be released some where in next month in different colors as seen in the above images. There are reports that the device will be made available for sale in emerging markets and will not be seen on shelves of the European or U.S markets due to Nokia’s deals with Microsoft.
