Nokia likely will aim its much-rumored Android phone at budget-conscious consumers, at least based on its reported specs.

In a tweet posted Tuesday, leaker @evleaks revealed the alleged, major features for the Nokia X, which goes by the codename Normandy. Assuming the information is accurate, and @evleaks usually is reliable, the phone will offer a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 4-inch WVGA screen, 512MB of memory, 4GB of storage, and a microSD card slot.

Available in a choice of six colors, Normany will include a 5MP camera, a 1,500mAh battery, and a dual-SIM setup, according to @evleaks. One other tidbit: Apps will be available through the Nokia Store and third-party sites. Overall, the specs are decidedly low-tech, a sign that Nokia may push it toward consumers hoping not to spend much on a phone.

Rumors have spread slowly about Nokia's purported Android phone, due in part to @evleaks, which has posted alleged photos and other details about the device.
