A new mid-entry smartphone powered by the Symbian OS
Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia is gearing up for the release of its first devices based on Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system, but it seems that they did not forget about Symbian fans either, and that a new handset based on this platform will soon arrive on shelves, namely Nokia 603.The upcoming mobile phone is unofficial at the moment, but its specifications have already leaked into the wild accompanied by a series of photos with it.
The handset was spotted into the wild before, via User Agent Header file and FCC documents, and the guys over at symbiantweet have just come up with the said images and specs of it, courtesy of an anonymous tipster, it seems.
In the image to the left, meant to promote the device, you can see the new Nokia 603 showing off the six homescreens that Symbian Belle comes with.
As for the specifications that the new device is set to arrive on shelves with, we can start the count with a fast 1GHz application processor, an ARM 11 CPU.
Moreover, the new device should pack a 360×640 pixel touchscreen display of unknown size, along with a 5-megapixel photo snapper on the back.
Other specs of the new device would include support Micro SIM, WLAN b/g/n and Bluetooth capabilities, GPRS / EDGE / WCDMA / HSDPA connectivity, and interchangeable covers.
The handset will run under the new Symbian Belle operating system, and will also pack the Nokia Browser 7.4 inside, it seems.
All in all, the new handset does not seem to be a high-end smartphone, but capable of offering appealing features to all users.
Nokia promised that mode Symbian devices will be released in the next few years, but we're not expecting any breath-taking phones to run under the old platform, that's for sure.
What remains to be seen, however, is what price tag it will feature when brought to shelves, and when it will actually become available for purchase.
