Nokia testing lots of unannounced phones in India, Normandy included
We’re all on the edge of our seats waiting to see what Microsoft has planned for Nokia in the next coming days as MWC is a little over a week away. We’ve heard rumors of the company preparing a significant amount of devices for launch in Barcelona, but we’ve got to hand it to the company for keeping most of these a secret. The reason why we say ‘most’ is because the list is quite bigger than expected.
A website that hosts the import-export information for India is reporting a significant amount of devices arriving to the country for testing through New Delhi air, and we’re talking of plane-loads of handsets. Amount the list we see the model numbers RM-980, RM-964, RX-115, RM-977, RM-976, RM-978, RM-974, RM-990, to just name a few.
To give you an idea, the RM-980 is the Nokia X, or Normandy as we’ve been hearing it called, which is presumed to be the company’s first Android phone. We also see devices like the RM-976, 977, and 978, which would be the first Lumia 630/635 type of phones to include a dual-SIM feature.
Sadly we don’t see any high-end Lumia phones on this list. It could be that Microsoft is just testing its entry-level devices, which are quite popular in India. We’ll keep you posted as more news develop.
