We have been hearing a lot of rumors about Nokia developing an Android smartphone, but so far no official confirmation has been made. There have been those rumors as well which claim that the project is dead due to the acquisition of Nokia’s hardware business by Microsoft. However it was recently said that speculation about the project’s death has been greatly exaggerated, and that its still under way. It seems to be, seeing how a Nokia A110 Android powered smartphone recently showed up on AnTuTu benchmark.
Now there’s not much information available about Nokia’s Android smartphone, supposedly codenamed Normandy. The benchmarks do reveal that it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 854×480 pixel resolution display, a 5 megapixel rear camera and Android 4.4.1 pre-installed. Now it doesn’t mean that the final device is bound to have the exact same specifications, but they do appear to be in line with what has been rumored over the past few weeks. Earlier today screenshots of the purported Android UI of the Normandy were leaked online. Nokia is said to be going with a highly forked version of Android OS, which would presumably have a very different design language when compared to most low-end Android smartphones. It is not know if and when Nokia plans to release the Normandy, so we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled. [Image via NPU]
