Nokia has allegedly scrapped its plans to develop new Android smartphones.

A handset from the firm codenamed Normandy, said to be powered by the Google OS, was leaked earlier this month, but C Technology is now claiming that the project has been halted.

Nokia is allegedly re-entering the Android market

The report goes on to say that Nokia will instead focus on wearable technology, flexible displays and augmented reality going forward. The Normandy was tipped to run a forked version of Android, similar to Amazon’s Kindle Fire software, and phase out the company’s Asha line of smartphones.

It is unknown whether the company’s plans to re-enter the Android market were shelved due to Microsoft’s acquisition of its devices and services business, which gained EU approval this month. The Normandy was originally expected to launch in 2014.
