Nokia Lumia Running Android OS? Here’s What We Know

HMD may be working to bring back the Fabula design, which was used in Lumia devices back in the day, on an Android smartphone.

Nokia was making Lumia smartphones for Microsoft that ran Windows Phone operating system and those were known not only for their software but their unique hardware as well. HMD, the current maker of Nokia devices, now seems to be planning to leverage the same iconic “Fabula” design used in Lumia devices, in one of their own smartphones that would run on the operating system.

An account on X that goes by the name of HMD Meme’s posted a photo of an upcoming HMD smartphone (via Nokiamob) that sports the same “Fabula” design which we saw with the Lumia 920 and more Lumia smartphones back in the day. While the source isn’t the most reliable, the renders shared look legit, based on the teaser photos we saw from HMD when it announced that it will now be making smartphones of its own.

The HMD device can be seen having a frame with a boxy shape and sharp edges, while the corners of the display are curved. The chin is slightly thicker than the other bezels. It could come in four vibrant colour options, such as green, blue, yellow and pink. There may be two cameras on the back.

While it may not be called a Lumia device, it could potentially fulfil the wish of a chunk of population who wanted the iconic Nokia Lumia smartphones to run Android as Windows Phone OS was quite restricted in nature with regards to specific areas, such as customisation, support and more. The Fabula design was quite unique and quickly caught the eye of the audiences.
