Photo-taken-with-Nokia-X_EXIF

The Nokia X is rumored to come with a 5-megapixel camera, however when it appeared on the CamSpeed database, the detected camera was 3MP. To help clear this confusion, a another picture was taken with the Nokia X (A110) and the EXIF data shows it’s a 5MP photo.

The EXIF shows that the picture was taken with flash and a fixed-focus camera with a resolution of 1,920 × 2,560 pixels (4.9 MP). Previous rumors about the Nokia X indicate that the device will sport a 4-inch WVGA screen, dual-core 1 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, 4 GB of internal memory and has a Dual-SIM option. The device is expected to be announced at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) which is set to take place on February 24 in Barcelona.

Nokia X benchmark hints at 3 megapixel fixed-focus camera and Android 4.1

Nokia Normany press render

If the Nokia X ever gets announced, there’s not going to be anything left about the phone to surprise us. The latest leak comes from a CamSpeed benchmark, which is a benchmark typically to measure camera performance. Nokia’s X phone has shown up in some scores with a 3 megapixel, fixed-focus camera. The original specs we’d heard suggested the phone would have a 5 megapixel camera, so this lowers that bar just a bit.

The benchmark also showed the device running Android 4.1. A few rumors floating around said it would run Android 4.4, but it’s looking like that isn’t going to be the case. Considering how heavily Nokia plans on skinning Android for this phone, they may not have felt it necessary to use the latest and greatest software. » Read the rest
