@evleaks posted an interesting Tweet earlier today, leaking a budget handset that reportedly runs on a version of Android OS, something that actually makes more sense when you think about it, allowing Microsoft to further expand their applications and services to the Android platform, thus advertising some of the higher end Windows Phone devices.
The smartphone looks to be a budget version of the Nokia Asha, with the screenshots looking to showing a device that will be dual-SIM compatible and will feature a lot of the apps that come with Windows Phone OS, however there’s nothing that actually confirms the smartphone is running on Android, but looking at it, we can clearly see that its defiantly not Windows Phone, or at least the version of it that we currently know.
However we have also recently seen a leak from the AnTuTu benchmarking application that seems to show an Android powered device’s specifications, stating the device as running Android 4.4.1, it could be likely that this is the same handset.
According to the application, the device is running on KitKat and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with a screen that features a 854 x 480 pixel resolution, alongside a 5 megapixel camera.
However that’s about all the leak shown.
There’s no release date or pricing for the smartphone yet, or even a date as to when it might be announced, but we can expect that it will be destined for the developing markets around the world.
