Local Spanish Twitter account of evleaks, @evleaksES, has tweeted a picture showing the unannounced Nokia Normandy in several colors. The picture is also showcasing Nokia’s custom Android UI, which (may be in your opinion) looks like Windows Phone’s Metro UI with Live Tiles.

If you’ve take a more-closer look at the picture, the device has a dual-SIM option. The clock is also set at 10:45 (Nokia 1045?). The Normandy will run forked version of Android, which means there are no Google apps like Play Store, Mail, Google Maps, etc as Amazon do with their Kindle Fire tablets. The Play Store has been replaced with Nokia Store, and, as you can see, there are Nokia’s own MixRadio music streaming service ‘pinned’ on the ‘Start’ screen.
The Normandy is a low-end device spotting a 854×480 (or 480×854) display (possibly 4″ panel), 5 megapixel camera, Android KitKat 4.4.1 out-of-the-box, and has Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset (possibly S200). There’s no info (other than described above) of this device for now.
What do you think? Will it be announced? As you know, Microsoft is going to purchasing Nokia’s handset division, so it may be announced, may be not. We’ll keep you posted with some official statement.
