Nokia, the Finnish mobile phone maker seems busy these days to manufacture Android phone codenamed “Normandy” and is planning to launch the device in the first quarter of 2014. However Nokia and Android are two impossible words that we think will not join hand together but if they do then its sure going to kill all other Android handset makers like Samsung, Karbonn, LG, Intex, XOLO, Micromax etc in India.
As rumors suggest Nokia Normandy is going to run on “forked” version of Android not the original Android OS but the device is going to be promising enough to run Android apps, games smoothly and will surprise user with its easy to use UI.
Specification of Nokia Normandy includes:
- SIM Support: Dual SIM (GSM+GSM)
- Display: 4 & 5-inch Capacitive touch screen
- Processor: Quad core processor
- RAM: 1 GB RAM
- Memory: 4 GB internal expandable up to 32 GB
- Camera: 5 Megapixel with Flash (Rear) & VGA (Front)
- Connectivity: GPRS,EDGE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB v2.0 support
- Battery: 2100 mAh
Normandy is expected to look like traditional Asha or Windows Phone models and will be available in Green, Blue, Yellow, White, and Red and is expected to be launched in 2014 and will be priced around 10,000 INR.
Microsoft has already acquired Nokia’s device and service division in September this year. Still it is not clear whether Normandy will be transferred into Windows Phone when Microsoft buyout will be completed in the first quarter of 2014. If by chance Nokia is able to launch Normandy device in the market before buyout is completed then it will able to recover from its heavy loss in mobile phone industries caused due to Android Phones.
Until then we are keeping our fingers crossed and wish Nokia, Good Luck for Normandy and would like to see this device in 2014.
Till then stay tuned with us, we will keep updating about Normandy as soon we came to know any news about it.
