Previously leaked Nokia 600 or Nokia N5 handset has now been referred to the Federal Communication Commission Labs for certification – an indication that the N5 is very close to its launch, probably towards the end of this year.
As per the FCC filing hunted down by Engadget, the Nokia N5 will run a Symbian version – Symbian Belle update, besides featuring Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication capabilities. There is no word on the launch, approximate price and availability of this handset.
Last month, grainy images of the Nokia 600 Cindy model handset were leaked along with couple of details. The Nokia 600 Cindy would be branded as Nokia N5 and sport a 1GHz processor along with 5 megapixel camera.
Featuring a 3.2-inch AMOLED display screen, the Nokia N5 is referred as in the FCC filing as RM-701 and will support 3G Network bands. Nokia had promised to roll out different software updates focusing on the User Interface, NFC and other features. As per our assumption, Symbian Belle update will follow to the roll out of Symbian Anna update for Nokia devices.
With the FCC certification, we believe that Nokia N5 is getting ready for a launch along with couple of other devices any time soon before the end of this year.
