Legions of Android users got their hopes up when rumors surfaced of Nokia working on an Android phone (codenamed Normany), but it was suggested that work on the phone had been scrapped. Then, everyone’s favorite leakster evleaks suggested that rumors of the death of Nokia’s Android phone had been greatly exaggerated, and it seems he might have been right, as a Nokia A110 has reared its face on the AnTuTu benchmark database, and a picture showing off the phone’s UI has also leaked by evleaks.
The A110 is running on Android 4.4.1 KitKat, a recent version of the OS that lends credence to rumors that work on the device has been in progress in recent weeks. It’s running off a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and reportedly sports a 5-megapixel camera and a display of 854×480 resolution. As seen in the image above, the A110 will also sport dual SIM functionality, which wouldn’t be surprising considering the phone has been rumored to be a low-cost device that would replace Nokia’s Asha line of devices, making it a good fit for emerging markets where dual SIM slots on smartphones are in high demand.
Alas, this doesn’t mean we’ll actually see Nokia release the A110 or another Android device in the future, as the A110 could just be a test device that is no longer being worked upon. Also, rumors suggest Nokia will be building its own ecosystem and UI over Android similar to Amazon, meaning it wouldn’t have offered Google services out of the box; furthermore, the OS could be Nokia’s own Meltemi instead of Android, a Linux-based OS that was scrapped when the company chose Windows Phone, so it’s best not to get your hopes up at this time.
