According to the listing (which originally appeared here, but has now disappeared), Nokia X A110 (which is supposed to be the model number, if the listing is to be believed) is priced at 2.2-2.5 million VND. Thankfully, a million Vietnamese Dong doesn’t translate to a million dollar but only $110 (~INR 7k).
Given the low-end specs of the phone and that Nokia might be aiming for the masses with this phone, we won’t be surprised if the Normandy is priced that low. If Nokia launches this phone for anywhere around that price tag, it would certainly ring a death bell for local players like Micromax and Karbonn as well as to Samsung’s low cost offerings in India. Nokia X could be specifically targeted for Asian markets as the low -end specs already indicate. Also, all the Nokia X snapshots we have come across so far contain Indian names in the contacts and calling screen. These screenshots might actually be the Indian press renders of the Nokia X.
according to WSJ, Nokia X will be unveiled on Feb 24th.
If you are unaware of the specs of Nokia X, here we go, yet again:

- 1 GHz Dual Core Processor
- 512 MB RAM
- Forked Android 4.4 KitKat (Support for Play Store expectedly missing)
