Remember a few weeks ago a device named Nokia Normandy was leaked? It was apparently an Android phone that Nokia has been working on for a while now. It was, or is suppose to a rather low end device, running an AOSP build of Android with Nokia’s custom user interface. We were very keen to know how Nokia would have gone about customising Android. Well, it looks as if our prayers have been answered because we now get a glimpse on an Android phone that could have been.
The picture above shows the user interface of Nokia Normandy, which is the code name of an Android phone that is reportedly under works. The device has just one physical button, which looks like a back button. Other than that the user interface will rely on on-screen navigation keys. In the pictures we can see Viber running, Skype running and the lock screen. The phone is a dual SIM according to the icons on the notification bar.
The user interface looks like a cross between the Asha UI and stock Android. To be honest it doesn’t look that bad. Nokia has never been known for their software aesthetic sense, but this looks like a rather impressive attempt. The question is, will this device ever see the light of day?
