Nokia's first Android smartphone, codenamed Normandy, or Nokia X, has now appeared on a retailer's website, listing Android 4.4 KitKat as its operating system.

The Nokia Normandy or Nokia X has leaked extensively as of late, as an Android smartphone from the Finnish company would be something that consumers have long been waiting for. While there were rumors at one point that Project Normandy was scrapped, more evidence is piling up to bolster claims of the handset's existence and imminent launch.

Nokia's first Android smartphone is expected to make its debut next month at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, and while Nokia hasn't announced anything official so far, one Vietnamese retailer has already listed the much-rumored Nokia Normandy on its website.

The biggest online retailer in Vietnam, The Gioididong, has listed the Nokia Normandy along with some of its specifications. The listing was first spotted by WMPoweruser. The retailer has pulled the page in the meantime, but WMPoweruser manager to grab a screenshot before the listing disappeared.

The Nokia Normandy appears with a 4-inch display, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage capacity, and Android 4.4 KitKat. If these specifications seem too low-end to support Android 4.4 KitKat, remember that Google has designed its latest OS version to work even with entry-level devices with at least 512MB of RAM, so it wouldn't be out of the question.

In terms of design, the Nokia Android smartphone seems to borrow many design cues from the company's Lumia and Asha lines, and all signs point to a user interface that is very similar to that of Windows Phone. Based on rumors so far, the handset would be running a forked version of Android with Nokia's UI on top. Other purported specs include a 5-megapixel rear camera and dual-SIM support. No front-facing shooter is listed. The retailer also claims that the Nokia Normandy will support all of Google's services.

It's worth highlighting, however, that none of this is official so far. Nokia has not announced any plans to launch an Android handset for now, but if rumors of a MWC debut prove to be accurate, we will hear all about it soon enough. Stay tuned for more information as soon as it becomes available.
