Nokia A110 smartphone running Android 4.4.1 appears on AnTuTu

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.

How can something that won't exist "sell like hotcakes"?

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.

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.

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

Looks like a Lumia 525 running Android KitKat. I would love to have one! :D

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. 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
