While reports of Nokia working on an Android based Lumia smartphone had shaken the world last week, we thought that Microsoft acquiring Nokia would bring that to an immediate stop, however that doesn’t seem to be the case.
According to the new reports, Nokia will continue to work on the Android smartphone, despite the deal with Microsoft, at least until November. The reports also suggest that the company may have made as many as 10000 prototypes of the Android powered Lumia smartphone with the help of Foxconn. While the company is yet to complete the acquisition by Microsoft, it will continue working on the device.
The Android powered smartphone that Nokia is working on is said to be an entry level smartphone powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 8225Q chip. However any further details about this smartphone is not yet known. While it is surprising to see Nokia, which was committed to the Windows Phone OS, suddenly taking keen interest in the Android, despite being on the verge of being fully acquired by Microsoft. This however doesn’t mean we may actually get to see some Android powered Nokia smartphones.
