Nokia is reportedly gearing up for a big splash at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where we might see the first Android-based phone from the company made official.
The Finnish handset vendor has been rumored for a while now to be working on a device running under Google’s mobile platform, one known at the moment under the codename of Nokia Normandy, yet no official confirmation on the matter has been provided as of now.
However, the smartphone did leak online before, and was even spotted in the AnTuTu Benchmark, which supposedly slightly confirmed its existence. It was also said to have been sent to India for testing a while ago.
On top of that, a recent report from NokiaPowerUser claims that a second batch of Nokia Normandy devices has landed in India, as per the Zauba website.
The phone features model number RM-980, and was seen in the records of the import / export tracking website, yet Nokia is still mum on the matter.
Even so, it appears that we might learn all about the new smartphone as soon as the next month, during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
At the same time, rumor has it that Nokia is getting ready for the launch of a handful of new devices at the aforementioned MWC show, including a new flagship handset and a mid-range phone, along with a certain Lumia 2020 tablet PC (Nokia RX-115).
The flagship smartphone reportedly features model number RM-964, while packing a 5.2-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering a full HD resolution, as well as a 20-megapixel camera on the back.
The mobile phone is also said to be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor, and to feature an Aluminum body design, similar to that of Lumia 925.
As for the Lumia 630 (and the Lumia 635 variant, for that matter), it will arrive with model number RM-977 / RM-978 / RM-976 with a 4.5-inch touchscreen display and with dual-SIM capabilities inside.
We’ll take the info above with a grain of salt for the time being, since no official confirmation on any of the said handsets has been provided, but we’ll also keep an eye out for more details on them, so stay tuned.
