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.
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.Yet not long ago, the reliable source known as @evleaks suggested that
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.

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.

What the hell, man! If only Nokia board had some sense while selecting the right CEO earlier in 2010-11 who had a good and healthy state of mind.

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.

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

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. http://forum.xda-developers.com/micromax-a110

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
