Nokia’s first Android phone purportedly shown again in online leaked image

Nokia’s first Android phone

Another image on Chinese social network Weibo (via WPCentral) purportedly showing the Nokia Normandy Android prototype. As earlier an image leak from @evleaks suggested that the rumored Android phone does not have Nokia branding on the front and back.

The Nokia Normandy would 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 device is not expected to offer access to the Google Play Store. Instead, it will likely address the low-end smartphone market alongside Nokia’s Asha devices that run Series 40 OS. Hardware details 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.
