Nokia to release high-end Android phone

Who would have thunk it

It seems that being owned by Microsoft is not enough to force Nokia to abandon its Android ways. The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn which suggests that Nokia is will release a high-end Android phone after the take-over.

Microsoft purchased Nokia's Devices and Services division back in April. As a part of the deal, Nokia is prevented from making smartphones until 2016, but now a new report has emerged claiming that the team behind Nokia's old flagship device, the Nokia N9 is hard at work developing a flagship Android handset.

Nokia released its last forked Android running devices back in June, but in July, Microsoft's CEO, Satya Nadella announced that Microsoft was moving Nokia X product designs to become Lumia products running Windows. Redmond announced it was replacing the Nokia Lumia branding with a Microsoft logo and just yesterday, alleged photos of Microsoft-branded phones were leaked.

However since Redmond did not buy Nokia’s mapping and network divisions the chances of a division making an Android phone under the Nokia name are quite high. The rumour is that we will see a flagship Android phone made by Nokia when it is free to sell phones in 2016.
