Nokia A110 smartphone running Android 4.4.1 appears on AnTuTu
If you've been following the news lately, then you might have come across the rumors about Nokia working on an Android phone of some sort. The Nokia Normandy, as it is being referred to, is believed to be a rather modest handset running a highly modified variant of Google's mobile OS. Also, it might have been already scrapped according to recent reports.

Yet not long ago, the reliable source known as @evleaks suggested that the Nokia Normandy project might actually be still alive and kicking. And he could be on the right track now that we seem to have benchmark data for Nokia's rumored Android device.

The hardware data for a phone labeled as the Nokia A110 appeared on AnTuTu, indicating that the handset has a Snapdragon processor, a 5MP camera, and a screen with a resolution of 854 by 480 pixels. Furthermore, the tested device runs Android 4.4.1, according to the leak. That's all in terms of specs that the screenshots reveal.

Of course, having all this information does not guarantee that this alleged Android phone by Nokia will ever materialize. We could be looking at test data from a scrapped prototype device of some kind. But of course, today's leak also suggests that Nokia is not totally against launching an Android phone of its own. Guess we'll just have to wait and see what's in Nokia's plans, but if the Nokia Normandy is meant to see the light of day, than we might get to see it in the flesh next month at MWC.

Why on earth would this sell like hot cakes? I'm not saying it wouldn't sell, but since we know very, very little about it, there's no reason to assume that this will have any significant amount of sales.

Nokia stunning hardware was held back by shallow software (WP 7/8). Since anything must be better than WP, it must sell like hot cakes.

You do realize that this is Android without Google, right? No Play Store, no Gmail, no Google integration.

I can't see how this actually improves on the current Nokia lineup.

Affordable price, Nokia build quality and brand and best of all, Android Kitkat. One question remains; is it great value like Moto G, pathetic low-end device or mid-ranger competing with devices like Ace 3.

We currently don't know if it has the snapdragon 400 quad core cpu or not, that is currently in the moto g. We do know that the screen already on the moto g is much better 1280x720 gorilla glass 3 vs 854x480 none gorilla glass. The other thing is the moto g price has dropped to $100 now off contract. Also KitKat 4.4.2 is now out for the moto g. Who knows when this if ever will get the update. With all that said price will still dictate a lot.

Not a chance of Nokia creating an Android device. But I like that the resolution is FWVGA instead of WVGA. Something that Motorola and Sony done, mostly.

At that point they would have not competed with Samsung and HTC, they would have lost. Their choice to go WP and then be bought out was the best hope they had. And in the process they keep, from my understanding a lot of the IP.

In 2010-2011 Nokia was still the biggest handset manufacturer in the world. Why would anyone reasonable assume, they would lost if they chose android back then? WP7 was not ready, to be main system of the world leader in phones. They could have start small low-end series of WP, but after series of stupid decisions, from begining of 2011 , till december 2012 Nokia had no true flagship model.

So wait a second, is this the Nokia part that got sold or the part that remains independent?

Lumia was bought! I think this is the one which is independent.

the Asha division still holds the name Nokia , so i guess they are testing something more of a skinned version of Android

How can they choose the only Android version that has been retired by google itself within one week from the release date? :)
Fake, IMHO.

They probably started working when 4.4.1 was released and stuck to it?

most Sony devices shipped with outdated versions of android , they just release the device with the software they were working on

As far as I know, you can search for a device on AnTuTu. So anybody can search 'Nokia' in AnTuTu and see it right?

As XDA Senior Member rahil3108 astutely pointed out, there is already an Android-powered device labeled A110: the Micromax A110. And sure enough, it runs at 854×480 resolution. It does not have a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Rrather, it uses a MediaTek MT6577. It also only officially ever received Android 4.1.1. So could the screenshots be some creative build-prop editing? Almost certainly.

It's really easy to modify, actually. If I'm not mistaken, there is one line that shows the manufacturer's name. Just replace it with 'Nokia' and you get the Nokia 'branding'. So this picture is fake as hell

I just hope Nokia will add their 41mp camera on the next one. But this will sell lots!

I have read no report on the web about any word from Microsoft about the Nokia A110 with a Android OS variation. Since Microsoft and Nokia are about to seal the sales deal this device would be a Microsoft device and will not go into Production unless Microsoft allows it.
Now if Microsoft allows it's new Smart phone/Feature Phone divisions do as they will as long as they make a Profit then this device could come into existence. HMM will Microsoft be Daring enough to let it come out? TIME WILL TELL!
