Nokia’s Android UI on Nokia Normandy leaks out

A few days ago we’ve got a news about the possible Nokia Normandy appearance. Now, @evleaks tweeted again with a new picture. Yes, it is showcasing the Normandy’s Android UI, which kinda looked like a Windows Phone’s Metro UI w/ Live Tiles. We’ll show you the leaked image. If you want to look at it a little closer, then click the picture.


The image reveals that Normandy is a dual-SIM device, as said from the prev. rumors. Ev says that there are ‘two ways to interact with Normandy‘, this means that users will only have two homescreens instead of multiple homescreens (usually 7) that are used by most of Android manufacturers, similar to Asha homescreen. However we can see some apps ‘pinned’ in the ’tiles’, three apps in each row. And there are some additional apps too like Facebook, Twitter, BBM, Vine, Opera, and some games. We can saw HERE Maps instead of Google Maps. And don’t forget that big Photo ’tile’ too.

We’d suspect that the Normandy is a heavily-customized version of Android, and it could mean that no Google apps on it (GMail, GMaps, even YouTube, and more), meanwhile some Google services has been replaced by Nokia’s own services (HERE Maps, Nokia Store, and even MixRadio, and more).

No official statement from Nokia so far, but we’ll update the blog as there’s more news. Stay tuned.
