Nokia Normandy to feature a notification center and Windows Phone-like UI

The Nokia Normandy keeps popping up every now and then and it indeed is one of the worst kept secrets of the company. Not only has its press shots leaked on the web, thus giving away the device’s design before the company got a chance to reveal it officially, but pictures of its interface have also shown up, leaving very little to the imagination.

A fresh screenshot has surfaced via none other than the famous Twitter handle @evleaks which is responsible for leaking a lot of information about the Android-based Nokia phone. The image (second one) very clearly reveals that the Finnish company which is being acquired by Microsoft, has used the same interface complete with Live Tiles which is associated with gadgets running the Windows Phone OS.

Icons and color schemes of various tiles is pretty similar to those in the Lumia phones and there’s a folder option too, allowing users to group same type of apps in a single tile for instant access. And what’s more, the smartphone codenamed Normandy will even feature a notification as well as app center.

Apart from reading your notifications in the dedicated area, you can even take appropriate actions right away. So if you have a missed call, you get the option of calling back or texting right in this area and also, you can read an entire text message you received and hit the reply button to revert then and there instead of navigating to the application for doing so.

The Nokia Normandy will hopefully be present at the MWC 2014 to be held next month is Spain.
