Do you remember the Microsoft Lumia 520? Yes; that one. It once reigned as the most popular Windows phone in existence. Launched in 2013, and later updated to Windows 8.1, Microsoft initially promised to bring Windows 10 to the phone, and failed on that promise. A developer from XDA named thinhx2 has been able to flash the phone and install Android 7.1 Nougat on the 520. Impressive.

So far so good, the phone works. Touchscreen, display, battery charge, buttons, and sounds are all functional. In more surprising news, the guy was able to get multi-window view to work – two apps running side by side on a small 4 inch screen! However, it should be noted that the phone isn’t ready to function as a daily driver.

Imagine how this would fare on a Lumia 950 or 950 XL. It is not every time we get to see occurrences like this, so savour it. Enjoy a short clip below of the phone at work below.

    Guys like this should be working in the R & D section of a place like Google or Samsung..
