Nokia Normandy Allegedly Pictured in the Flesh and Powered On

You may remember that  just five days ago, we shared some relatively convincing rendered images and a few screenshots of the alleged Android-powered Nokia “Normandy.” Now, there is some new fuel to add to the rumor mill fire, as two new leaked pictures have appeared, only this time, they’re not renders!

This device, which seems to be branded as the Nokia A110 if the previously leaked screenshots are to be believed, is running a highly customized version of Android 4.4.1 atop Linux Kernel 3.4.0. However, as XDA Senior Member rahil3108 was quick to point out in the article comments, there is already an Android-powered device labeled A110: the Micromax A110. And sure enough, it runs at the same 854×480 resolution as was seen in the screenshots.

Now, however, we have two alleged photographs of the elusive Nokia Normandy, including one image featuring a UI very similar to the previously leaked renders. Given that Microsoft is in the process of acquiring Nokia’s device and services business, it’s relatively unlikely that the Normandy will ever see the light of day. But with all the leaked renders, screenshots, and today’s images capturing the device in the flesh; it’s not hard to believe that the device is (or was) being actively worked on.

What are your thoughts on the Normandy? Do you think this was some kind of “Plan B” in the event of problems with the Microsoft Acquisition, or do you think this device is just some Shenzhen knockoff? Let us know in the comments below!
