Retailer Prices Nokia Normandy At Under $120
The Nokia Normandy, scheduled to be Nokia’s first Android smartphone (and not the last), has been listed by an online retailer operating in Vietnam that reveals the handset’s price tag and full list of specifications.
Pricing has been set between 2.2 and 2.5 million VND (Vietnamese Dong), which is around $117. It’s quite clear, then, that the handset will be categorized as an entry-level device.
We should get to know more about the smartphone during Nokia’s MWC announcement on February 24. Official availability is slated to begin by March in markets like China, India, Vietnam, and Taiwan — with other regions slated to follow shortly after that.
The smartphone is rumored to feature a 4-inch WVGA display, a 5-megapixel camera sensor on the back, a dual-core 1 GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage (expandable) and a decently sized battery. Surprisingly, this listing mentions the availability of Android 4.4.2 as the main operating system, contrary to previous rumors which hinted at Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
