Apparent Nokia X teaser leaks, heavy on the Android green


Last week, we saw Nokia make some changes to its online social presence, redecorating many of its pages in green. While the changes have since been reverted, speculation at the time suggested that the use of green might reference Android, the platform expected to form the core for the upcoming Nokia X, the phone we’ve followed as codename Normandy. As we settle in to the last week before Nokia’s MWC event, where we might hope to start getting answers, a new Nokia X teaser has leaked, and once again the color green is a major focus.

A few things strike our eye about the above image. First is the shade of green being used: that “Nokia X” is unmistakably in Android green, while the hue Nokia employed last week was a much less yellow green. We should also count this as further support for the use of the Nokia X name.

It’s a little odd how the screenshot on the phones depicted are only on the very small ones in the rear, as if to obscure Nokia’s Android UI. We’re not sure what to make of that; could it be an effort to keep the final look a surprise?

Finally, we notice that tiny smudge of text along the right edge. Though tricky to make out, the image resolution is just barely high enough for us to read: “Android is a trademark of Google Inc. © 2014 Nokia All rights reserved.”
