Well the rumors are supposedly true when later during the year, the once not long ago the world’s largest handset maker, would be looking to turn its fortunes around by launching its FIRST Android device, Normandy. Yes my readers you guessed the later part perfectly right. Finnish handset maker Nokia who has been going through turbulent times and looking to seek some reprieve from Microsoft has decided to experiment something new, once which it did in almost all its handsets which made it a giant. After joining hands with Nokia to launch a wide range of Windows based phones, Nokia has finally stepped into the Android foray by spreading rumors about Normandy.

The Normandy is rumored to sport a 4 inch LCD screen with 854*480 resolution display and have a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 which would be a Quad Core processor with 512 MB of RAM. But according to a latest leak from @nextleaks, it says the processor would be a Snapdragon 400 processor clocking a speed of 1.7 GHz with 1GB of RAM. It would include a 5MP camera but without flash as we can clearly make out from the leaked images and an internal memory of 4 GB.

The Normandy would be powered on a 2000mAh battery and would be branded as either Nokia X or Asha 4xx, making it a part of the Nokia Asha series. It would be running the latest but modified Android 4.4.1 and would have a Dual-Sim; Dual-Standby facility with one sim for just 2G and the other would function on 3G. Both would be GSM capable only. Now coming to the looks, Normandy would have a uni-body design with a removable shell cover. According to further speculations, Normandy would be available in 6 different colors.

The phone would be modeled as A-110 as speculated on AnTuTu and would have an in-built Skype support, so making it clear that it could even sport a front cam. It would have locked screen notifications which would make the UI of the phone very similar to the Symbian S40 series which the Nokia had designed in its earlier phones. The biggest surprise everyone has is these phones would be made available for less than Rs. 10,000/-. Pricing has always been Nokia’s biggest threat to its competitors and seems like the Normandy isn’t far behind to overtake the big giants. So let’s wait and watch whether Normandy would change fortunes for Nokia
