According to a recent rumor, the Android-powered Nokia X will finally make its official debut at Mobile World Congress next week. That leaves around seven more days for more leaks to surface, though, and today we've got a new one to show you.

Frequent phone leaker @evleaks has shared a new Nokia X image that appears to be some official promotional material for the device. The name "Nokia X" is included in the leaked image, as is a green version of the phone itself, complete with a lone back button and what's likely a bottom-mounted microUSB port. Some of the units in the image also show screenshots of the custom version of Android that's expected to come preloaded on the Nokia X.

The Nokia X is rumored to be an entry-level device that will be targeted at emerging markets, similar to Nokia's existing Asha line of handsets. Recent reports have suggested that the X will feature a 4-inch 800x480 display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 5-megapixel camera, 512MB RAM, dual-SIM support and 4GB of internal storage that can be supplemented with a microSD card. On the software side, the Nokia X is rumored to be running a heavily-customized version of Android, complete with a Nokia store with Android apps inside.

While the Nokia X has been leaking fairly frequently since early December, it's been unclear whether or not the device would ever actually make it to market due to Microsoft's impending acquisition of Nokia's Devices & Services division. The rumor mill seems to think that the X will indeed be making its way to store shelves, though, which could be a way for Microsoft to earn a few extra bucks for its Windows Phone efforts.

There's still no word yet on when exactly the Nokia X will launch or how much it'll cost when it does, but I wouldn't be surprised if Nokia finally spills the Android-flavored beans at its MWC 2014 press event next week. Stay tuned.
