Could Nokia be teasing the X2, a new Android phone, for next week?
Following yesterday’s release of the Nokia Z Launcher, we’re once again in that same place we found ourselves several months back when all the Nokia X hardware was being confirmed, a little tickled to be seeing Nokia crossing the tracks over to the Android side of town. As fate may have it, this feeling might extend a little longer, as Nokia puts up a teaser that could just be hinting at a new Android hardware release… or is it?
Here’s what we have: Nokia (the Devices & Services, now-part-of-Microsoft bit) has posted a teaser announcing “summer brings out our inner glow” and tagged with the headline “green with envy.” We’ve also got a timer counting down until early Tuesday morning and that mysterious image you see up top. So what the heck does that all mean?
We’re hearing more than a few opinions that we could be looking at a new hardware launch, possibly the phone we’ve been calling the X2. Granted, there was a leak last month that mentioned an X2, but that both sounded like a relatively minor hardware upgrade (S4 Play swapped for Snapdragon 200), and we’re not sure there’s anything in this teaser that directly hints at an X2 launch. Yes, the use of green here may very well allude to Android, but that’s about as far as we’re comfortable taking this speculation.
Heck, maybe we’re not looking at Android at all. All this business about “glow” and colors could be something as innocent as new color options for existing handsets. We’ll keep looking for more clues, but we’ll get our answer one way or another in a little under four days.
