Nokia's Normandy smartphone has been in the headlines for quite sometime now. Though earlier reports had dismissed the arrival of the smartphone, latest rumours suggest the Finnish company is pushing to make their Android smartphone dream a reality.
Folks at serial leakster @evleaks recently revealed the photos of the purported Normandy smartphone, with the caption "Android on Nokia". The phone, featured in the images, runs on the Android OS platform and appears to be using the iconic Lumia design.
The Normandy, which is speculated to be an entry-level smartphone, flaunts a UI similar to that of Nokia's budget Asha line-up. Going by the images, the phone is likely to be a dual SIM handset and may feature lock-screen notifications, Viber and Skype apps. The Android smartphone is expected to come in multiple colours.
Meanwhile, another report claims to have seen a mysterious smartphone, codenamed Nokia RM-980 A110 and believed to be the Normandy, on benchmark website Antutu.
According to Chinese microblogging website Weibo, Nokia RM-980 A110 (aka Normandy) is expected to feature a 4-inch FWVGA display with 480 x 854 resolution and runs on Android 4.4.1 KitKat OS. Other stipulated features include Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and 5 megapixel rear camera.
Details about the launch date and availability of the Nokia's first ever Android smartphone is still scarce. However, according to various media reports, the phone is developed in "full steam" and is likely to hit retail shelves by the end of this year.
