Yes, Microsoft really is perfectly happy to keep releasing Android phones. UnwiredView has stumbled across some leaked specifications found on the Antutu benchmarking site that show a new Android-based Nokia device that features a 4.3-inch display with a resolution of 480×800 pixels, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera, a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 4 GB of storage.

These are not exactly killer specs in this day and age but they aren’t meant to be: The original Nokia X was designed as a budget smartphone that featured a dial-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 4-inch WVGA display, 512MB of RAM, 4GB storage, microSD support, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1,500 mAh battery and dual-SIM card support. In other words, the so-called “Nokia X2” is basically the same specs-wise as the first Nokia X but it has a slightly faster processor, more RAM and a slightly larger display.
