(UPDATE) @evleaks leaks more Android on Nokia, release imminent?

This morning @evleaks posted a photo with that caption “Android on Nokia ( -virtual buttons)” that could perhaps be further suggesting a Nokia device running Android is in the works.

The device pictured also appears to be a dual-sim smartphone.

Rumors began in November when @evleaks  leaked a photo of a device codenamed “Normandy” that was said to be a low-end Android device.

This Lumia-style device, according to a report by The Verge, has “no apparent capacitive buttons for navigation” and “supports Android applications like Skype, and other popular top apps.”

Comparing the above image to smartphones running Windows Phone, the navigation bar is nearly identical as far as the layout of the status bar icons.

This may be a heavily skinned version of Android, much like Amazon does with its Kindle tablets. If you ask me, while it was reported to have no capacitive buttons, the caption might mean “minus virtual buttons” and it appears to have one capacitive button, which is a back button. That dialer also looks like the KitKat dialer.

While @evleaks has proved accurate nearly every single time out, this one has our radar up.

UPDATE: GSMArena noted another leak of an AnTuTu test that the device, “Nokia RM-980 A110,” features a 4-inch FWVGA display (480×854 pixels), Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 5 MP rear camera and runs Android 4.4.1 KitKat.
