Afterall Nokia is working on android here is Nokia Android phone’s interface

The popular @evleaks known for leaking secrets has shared an image showing the rumored Nokia Normandy (code name) smartphone running on a highly customized version of Android. The user interface is clearly different from what we normally see on Android devices but its quiet interesting design with flat, simple and easy interface

This is the second such leak showing the interface of Nokia’s forked version of Android, the first leak however didn’t show much. You can also see that Nokia is not using on-screen navigation buttons and there is only one physical (or capacitive) navigation button the smartphone.
Another interesting detail, which can be deducted from this image is that these particular renders have been made for Indian market (look at all those Indian names). This suggests that if the phone ever makes it to the market, we can expect to see it in India, which makes sense too as this is going to be a budget smartphone, which will be targeted at the local Indian smartphone vendors that have eaten up Nokia’s lunch with their budget Android phones in the country.
So are you guys waiting for this phone, let us know in comments. Also share your thoughts on the user-interface.
