Nokia’s first Android phone purportedly shown again in leaked pic

Nokia Normandy Android Smartphone

An image purportedly showing the Nokia Normandy Android prototype has been published online on Chinese social network Weibo (via WPCentral), with user WPDang saying that the rumored Android phone does not have Nokia branding on the front and back, as a previous image leak from @evleaks suggested. The Nokia Normandy is supposed to be the first Android handset from the company, although the Finnish smartphone maker is said to fork Android in a similar manner as Amazon does with its Kindle Fire OS. However, the interface of the device is blurred in the image below.

The phone is not expected to offer access to the Google Play Store or to be a flagship device. Instead it will likely address the low-end smartphone market alongside Nokia’s Asha devices that run Series 40 OS. Hardware details for the Normandy are not available at this time, but the image suggests the handset will have dual SIM capabilities and feature a single capacitive button.

Even though there have been a few rumors and reports on the Normandy, including these image leaks, it’s not clear whether Nokia will actually launch an Android phone, considering the imminent Microsoft acquisition of the company’s mobile division.
