Nokia's first Android handset to be called Nokia X?

Nokia's first Android-based handset will be called the "Nokia X", if EvLeaks is to be believed.

The mobile tipster tweeted "Project Normandy = Nokia X" on Thursday, indicating the name of the device for when it hits the market.

We've seen several leaked press shots of the Nokia X, carrying a user interface that actually looks a lot like Windows Phone. It has a similar colour scheme, tile set-up, and apps that put it on par with Microsoft's current software offering.

It's not clear when Microsoft and Nokia actually plan to release the Android-based handset, but the launch is expected to come after the buyout deal between Microsoft and Nokia closes in the first quarter of 2014. The Nokia X handset is reportedly aimed at the low-end, emerging markets, providing a cheap first-time handset for customers.

Nokia sent out invitations to media on Thursday for its event at Mobile World Congress in February. It's not clear if Nokia is planning a Nokia X announcement at the event, or will wait for 25 March as pointed to in a screenshot previously leaked.

Leaked photos have shown the Nokia X's back looking closely to a Lumia handset, with a polycarbonate finish, camera flash, and the usual side buttons for power and volume. A status bar on the user interface leaked shows dual-SIM capabilities.

The Verge reported on potential specifications for the handset, saying it will have a 4-inch display, Qualcomm S4 processor, 3-megapixel camera, 4GB of storage, and 512MB of RAM. There will also be expandable storage through a microSD card.

Let's try not to get the Moto X and Nokia X confused, shall we?
