It’s currently a public secret that Nokia has been building its own Android phone and the details emerging our now are that its Codenamed Normandy. Basing on the leaked picture, it seems to be designed as the next step in low-end phones. Finnish smartphone maker has been testing “Normandy” with a special “forked” variant of Android that’s not the same as Google’s own version, something we saw that Amazon does with its Kindle Fire line.
From the image we see above of the of the phone which was published in November by @evleaks, showing a Lumia-looking device with no apparent capacitive buttons for navigation Since the company is on the verge of being acquired by Microsoft it’s now unclear whether Nokia will release the handset.
Normandy phone is designed as an Asha equivalent to push low-cost devices. What we wait to see if Nokia will manage to release Normandy ahead of its Microsoft deal.
