It is being reported that a Nokia device with a model number RM-980 (previously spotted in a benchmark listing) has been spotted at Malaysia’s certification body, soon after it was noted that the same device had been spotted at Indonesia’s certification agency.
Recently enough, the Nokia X handset was said to fall under the Nokia’s Asha device line-up. Reports state an unnamed senior executive officer from Nokia India, who reportedly also confirmed that the much-rumoured dual-SIM Windows Phone device, aka Moneypenny, would be launched in the country at the same time.
Some of the specifications are also rumoured for the handset. The Nokia X will apparently be powered by a dual-core Snapdragon processor clocking at 1GHz. While the precise SoC is not known yet, some previous rumours indicate the handset will feature a Snapdragon 200 8225Q.
Other leaked specifications, as shared by @evleaks, include a 4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 480×854 (FWVGA) pixels, 5-megapixel rear camera, 4GB storage with microSD card, 1500mAh battery, 512MB RAM, and dual-SIM support.
The handset is said to run a highly customised version of Android 4.4 KitKat also feature Nokia’s own application store on board, similar to what Amazon has done with its Kindle Fire tablets.
The Nokia X is also rumoured to come with dual-SIM support, while connectivity options including 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS, EDGE, AGPS and Micro-USB. Other specifications include 4GB of inbuilt storage and Adreno 302 GPU.
