Normandy Won’t Be Nokia’s Only Android Smartphone In 2014 [Rumor]

Nokia Normandy

The Nokia Normandy is all but confirmed and slated for a launch on February 24 during MWC, and now a new report from China claims that this will be the first of several Android-powered smartphones from Nokia throughout 2014.

It is believed that Nokia will continue working on Android and will possibly launch midrange and even high-end smartphones by May or June this year. While we’re not too optimistic about the success of a midrange Nokia smartphone with no Google apps or the Play Store, the Finnish manufacturer will hope to leverage the popularity of its brand across the globe.

Pricing will be another crucial factor for the success of these alleged Nokia droids and we’re sure the company will give that a serious thought as well. Since the Nokia Android phones will basically merge with the Asha series, we do not expect high end hardware from the upcoming Nokia X/Normandy smartphone.

It has been said that the Nokia X will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and feature a specs sheet comparable to the Lumia 520 which sports a 4 inch 480 x 800 resolution display, a 5MP rear camera, a 1 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 Plus (MSM8227) chipset and 512MB of RAM.
