At this year’s Mobile World Congress, we were on hand to witness the big announcement of the Nokia X range, a line of smartphones that would run on a forked version of Android made to appear, and function, like Windows Phone. But just five months after February’s MWC, the now Microsoft-owned firm has decided to cease this particular endeavor, with Asha also being scrapped as a part of a shake-up that has seen the Redmond lay off almost 20,000 Nokia staff, and finally, it would seem, the company’s sole focus is Windows Phone.

When Microsoft bought Nokia, many understandably thought that the latter’s brief flirtation with Android would come to an end.

Now that Nokia has introduced itself to the world of Android, the company will have to become familiar with a few of the ground rules. The first thing to remember about running Google’s mobile OS is that nothing is sacred, and any attempt to release a feature or app exclusively for one device family will only result in the hack/mod-minded Android community extracting and sharing said treasure with those running other Android-based devices. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that the Nokia X Store APK has already been made freely available, and perhaps even less of a turn-up for the books, is that it has arrived courtesy of the folks at XDA-Developers.

When it became clear that the Nokia X was going to be the first Android-powered phone from the Finnish company that Microsoft now owns, it left many of us particularly excited. Android coupled with Nokia’s hardware chops promised to mean something rather special, but alas it wasn’t to be. The recently announced Nokia X may indeed have Android coursing through its veins, but it’s not quite as we’d hoped.

Nokia has been coy amid the speculation of a supposed smartphone running on what we’re led to believe will be a ‘forked’ version of Google’s Android, but with the Mobile World Congress drawing ever closer, the well-guarded secret is becoming increasingly difficult for the Finnish company to keep under wraps. Today, prolific leaker Evleaks has come through with yet another press image of the supposed ‘Nokia X’ handset, and although the fact that Microsoft is in the processes of purchasing Nokia throws up quite the conflict of interests, it’s looking more likely than not that the Lumia maker will be pressing ahead and showcasing the Nokia X next week.

It’s looking more and more likely that Nokia will indeed be launching an Android-based handset. Thanks to a couple of previous leaks, we already have a relatively vivid picture of the UI, which looks a lot more like Windows Phone than Google’s mobile OS, and we can also have a fairly solid idea of its form factor. Now, thanks to yet another spoiler from the ever-reliable Evleaks Twitter handle, we have a list of specs for the so-called ‘Nokia X,’ and in line with previous reports, it’s pretty standard mid-range fare.
