Although there was plenty of scepticism to begin with, industry observers are now forming a consensus over rumours that Nokia is going to be releasing a new smartphone, based on the Android operating system.
Known as the Normandy, the phone is thought to be making its debut at the end of February, presumably during the MWC 2014 event that is being held in Barcelona.
Leaks made available via a major e-commerce outlet based in Vietnam, have showcased a number of anticipated specifications for the Normandy, all of which point towards it being a budget device which will sit alongside the Windows Phone-based Lumia 520, according to PhoneArena.
A four inch display, dual core 1GHz processor and half a gig of RAM are all expected to feature on the Normandy. Nokia will be using Android 4.4 KitKat, although an in-house user interface will be applied, with early pics suggesting that it will take a leaf out of the Windows Phone book when it comes to icons and overall aesthetics.
There is just under a month to wait to find out official info on the Nokia Normandy Android smartphone, but more leaks could reveal additional details in the interim.
