Nokia Normandy Allegedly Spotted in AnTuTu with Android 4.4.1 KitKat

Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia has been long rumored to be working on a handset running under Google’s Android operating system, and confirmation on the matter has allegedly emerged in China.

A user on Weibo has posted a series of screenshots that appear to be showing the hardware specs of the mobile phone, and which purportedly confirm that it is running under the Android 4.4.1 operating system. The handset can be seen in what should be a screenshot from AnTuTu with the model number Nokia A110 attached to it, and with a screen capable of delivering an 854 x 480 pixel resolution, as NokiaPoweruser notes. The device is also said to feature a 5-megapixel camera on the back, though no specific info on its capabilities have been provided as of now. Previously, the smartphone was also said to arrive with dual-SIM and dual-standby capabilities, and to feature a 4-inch touchscreen display.

The most interesting details that can be extracted from the newly leaked screenshots, however, include the fact that Nokia Normandy runs under the latest Android KitKat version out there, and that it is powered by a Snapdragon processor. Considering the fact that Nokia has already adopted Qualcomm’s chips for its Windows Phone devices, it does not come too much as a surprise that it might make a similar move when it comes to the Android prototype. For the time being, however, we’ll take the info above with a big grain of salt, especially considering the fact that these benchmarks can be easily forged.

There’s no telling on whether Nokia will indeed launch an Android smartphone or not, given the fact that it is heavily focused on Windows Phone devices and that Microsoft is buying its handset division, yet strange things did happen before, and anything is possible. Hopefully, the company will come forward and announce specifics on the matter in the not too distant future, so keep an eye on this space to learn the news.
