We hope you didn’t place a big bet on the Nokia Normandy being a discarded prototype of an Android smartphone by the Finnish company. As we draw closer to the MWC, we’re hearing more and more about Nokia’s attempts to redress past mistakes. The Nokia phone codenamed Normandy could indeed show up at the MWC 2014.
The handset was most recently leaked by a Vietnamese retailer and guess what? It’s expected to run Android KitKat 4.4. In terms of appearance, the Normandy retains a most Lumia-like exterior. All indications point to the screen surfacing a user interface very similar to what Windows Phone offers.
Nokia Normandy features disappoint
But we’re not about to wax eloquent about the design. The detailed specifications of the smartphone have also been let out via online seller The Gioididong.com, as WMPoweruser found out. You can scroll down for the full list or let us take you through the main ones first.
The Normandy is pictured with a 4-inch display, 512MB RAM, 4GB ROM and a 1GHz dual core chip. Sounds too low budget to warrant KitKat on it? Not if you’ve been listening to Google. The company is intent on spreading Android 4.4 to devices across all categories, as we reported previously.
Nokia Normandy rumored specs:
– 4-inch 480 x 854p touchscreen
– Android KitKat 4.4
– 5MP main camera
– 1GHz Snapdragon 200 dual core processor
– Adreno 302 graphics
– 512MB RAM, 4GB onboard memory
– 32GB microSD card support
– Dual slots for microSIM cards

If you want any more clues telling you that the Nokia-Android lovechild will be a mid-range one, then the dual SIM card slots should do it.
