After so many Android smartphones from Samsung and other companies, including LG and HTC, Microsoft is also in rumors to bring Android-powered Nokia Lumia phones in the market by the end of this year. @evleaks, a notorious leaker, on Twitter, tweeted that the Lumia devices running Android are now under production.
It would be the first Android device coming in the name of Nokia by Microsoft. Nokia, however, also launched Nokia X, X+ and XL, which replaced most Google services with one which are from Microsoft. The company loaded a customized version of the Android on to the Nokia X series, and the UI was pretty much similar to the Metro UI in Windows Phone.
The device had performance issues and was suffering from the bugs, which were not addressed by the company. Nokia is least expected to repeat the same mistake with these rumored devices, analyst believe that the device would have the same metro UI, but would be efficient and better than the previously launched low cost smartphone.
It is without any doubt that the Microsoft will integrate its services, such as Outlook and OneDrive, in this Android device, some analyst said that we can expect a custom version of Cortana running on the device.
At a press briefing at Microsoft Malaysia’s office in Kuala Lumpur, Microsoft Devices Malaysia product marketing manager Steve Chan highlighted the Lumia 930’s exciting new features.
With a more premium look and design, the Lumia 930 is definitely eye-catching, especially with its stylish metal frame and brightly-coloured matte back panels.
Its five-inch Full HD OLED, Gorilla Glass 3 display is reportedly the brightest in its class even in bright sunlight, and offers a near 180° viewing angle.
On the inside, the Lumia 930 is powered by a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 2GB RAM, giving it enough speed to handle day-to-day activities.
