Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia has already confirmed that it has no plans to launch devices running under Google’s Android operating system, but that won’t stop enthusiasts from dreaming of such a smartphone.
One designer, sunkotora, is considering the possibility that Nokia’s hardware and Google’s mobile platform might join hands one day.
In fact, a new concept phone coming from this designer is meant to provide us with a glimpse at what such a device might look like.
Called Nokia OneWay, the concept device also features appealing hardware specifications, some of which have already been included in Nokia’s latest flagship smartphone.
Thus, the Android-based Nokia concept features a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ touchscreen display that can deliver a 332ppi pixel density, and also sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor inside.
2GB of RAM would complement the powerful processor, thus providing users with great performance capabilities while on the go.
Furthermore, the concept phone sports 32GB of internal memory, yet there’s no mentioning of a microSD memory card slot to expand it.
However, the Nokia OneWay concept device does sport a 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with Nokia’s own technology packed inside, and with support for full HD video recording, just as any high-end Android smartphone can offer today.
The concept phone was imagined with Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system loaded on it, which means that it would also have access to all the services and applications that are already available for the mobile platform.
Although the idea of having a Nokia device running under Android might seem far-fetched for the time being, Nokia OneWay does seem very appealing, that’s for sure.
However, the Finnish handset vendor is currently focused on the development of Windows Phone-based devices, which means that it might not be planning the launch of smartphones powered by other platforms anytime soon.
