Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia’s products and services division back in September of last year had actually tossed any sort of desires of the Finnish company providing an Android mobile in to uncertainty. Its Redmond emperor is, after all, attempting to make strides with its very own struggling mobile ecosystem in Windows Phone. However however, broach a Nokia-made tool running Google’s Android has continued to be, and as for we understand, it’s being established under the codename Normandy. Today, courtesy of numerous sources on both Twitter and China’s Weibo, we can have our first genuine glimpse at the supposed “”engineering model.” “Inspect it out after the leap!

We’ve currently seen press photos of Normandy, however this is the initial time we have actually been able to slap eyes on the tool in some type of activity. Sure, it would certainly have behaved to have a video showing the customer interface, but also for the time being, an image will certainly do well.

From just what has been claimed of Nokia’s intended Android endeavors in the past, we’ll be acquiring an inexpensive mobile instead compared to anything as well magnificent, and this leaked chance does hardly any to negate these claims. The layout is simplified, common of a mid-range tool, and although it’s hard to amass too much detail from this singular breeze, it does advise us rather of the Lumia 820, which was also a mid-market initiative.

The gadget itself isn’t of such value as the UI, which is greatly modded from the traditional Google Android arrangement. Sure, the likes of HTC and Samsung like to apply their very own launchers to proceedings, but both still preserve a component of the stock Android encounter for completion user. Yet at this factor we cannot state just what the final UI of the Normandy will certainly resemble, because the gadget in concern is just a plain design prototype. However still, we see slight flat aspects of Windows Phone occasionally.



If past is anything to go by, we would certainly anticipate that a demonstration video clip of Normandy in struggle will appear in the really close to future. As and when it does, we’ll have all the details here at Redmond Pie, so make sure to remain tuned to our protection.
