With only a few days before Mobile World Congress, some recent photos purporting to show Nokia’s X phone, aka ‘project Normandy’, have made their debut online. Nokia X is the supposed name for the low-cost, entry level device, which is similar to the Lumia 520.
Despite the Nokia X running a forked-version of Android, readers may have noticed that it looks awfully inspired by a certain Windows Phone OS. Indeed, you could even describe its ‘start’ screen as Tile-esque. Of course, this isn’t the first time we have seen what ‘X’ will look like, but it’s interesting to see just how inspired Nokia was from their own Lumia line.
Readers may be wondering, besides the UI similarities, what is the long term play for X? Why even make it look like Windows Phone? Or how will Nokia even describe it? It’s hard to know at this point, but it does raise interesting questions about Android, Microsoft, Windows Phone and whether if any of those will cross paths at some point in the future.
Stay tuned, as Monday morning (Barcelona time), Nokia will be sharing this with the world. We’ll be there to cover it live.
