Nokia X budget Android smartphone purportedly spotted in benchmark listing
With each passing day, Nokia's yet-to-be-confirmed first Android phone, the Nokia X gets tipped in new leaks, fuelling speculation that the Finnish handset maker may actually unveil the device.

The new leak comes via Browsermark 2 benchmark's database, which lists a device believed to be the Nokia X (aka Project Normandy), running Android on top. According to the Browsermark 2 database, the alleged Nokia X device comes with model number RM-980, and scores 1885.88 in the test.

Unfortunately, the listing does not reveal any details about the device but includes an image that purportedly shows Nokia X wearing Nexus 5's wallpaper and home screen icons. However, the current image contradicts earlier reports that claimed that Nokia, following the lead of Amazon, has been working on a fully-tailored or forked version of Android, like the software on the online retail giant's Kindle Fire tablet range.

The alleged Nokia X was recently listed at a Vietnamese online retailer that have revealed most of the specifications, including a 4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 480x854 (FWVGA) pixels; a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor; 5-megapixel rear camera; microSD card support and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Further, the listing seemingly confirmed that the rumoured Nokia X would come with dual-SIM support, while connectivity options include 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS, EDGE, AGPS and Micro-USB. Other specifications include 4GB of inbuilt storage and Adreno 302 GPU.

Notably, the listing claimed that the alleged Nokia X supports Google services like Google Play store, Google Search, Google Now, Google Maps, Calendar and YouTube.

The alleged Nokia X aka Nokia Normandy is said to get introduced in the upcoming MWC 2014 event held in Barcelona starting from 24 February.
