Nokia ‘Normandy’ Android phone prototype leaked



Rumors around Nokia’s Android device have been picking up pace lately and thanks to Sina Weibo, we can now get a glimpse of what the device might look like. Code named Normandy, the phone will slot in between the Asha and Lumia series of phones if and when it ships. Nokia is said to have blessed the phone with a forked version of Android that won’t support Google Play services.

While renders of the phone’s interface appeared earlier this week, we can see the phone here wrapped in a protective shell. This serves as a way to protect the final design from leaking out prior to launch. The specifications are expected to be fairly low end with the phone packing an entry level dual core Snapdragon processor. There’s also believed to be a 5MP camera unit at the back. Interestingly the phone also has a single button at the bottom which is opposed to the standard menu icons seen on Android devices. The device might be part of Nokia’s announcements at MWC next month. Would you be interested in an Android device manufactured by Nokia but lacking most of Google services? Let us know in the comments section.
