Nokia is preparing to launch its new smartphone X7 in the Indian market. The device will feature the latest version of Symbian operating system, called Anna.
“We are planning to launch X7 in this quarter in India,” a Nokia spokesperson told ‘The Mobile Indian’ without divulging the exact date of launch.
Nokia has positioned the X7 as an entertainment smartphone, and has given it a four inch Amoled screen that displays 16 million colours and 640 x 360 pixel resolution, as well as high quality sound output.
X7 features a brand new look and feel along with an improved interface for fluid gesture movement, which Nokia claims is very responsive.
Symbian Anna has a new browser as well, which is expected to be three times faster than the existing browser.
X7 will feature a preinstalled 8GB memory card that can be upgraded to 32GB, and it has 320MB of internal memory functioning as its RAM/ROM.
The display is made of Corning’s Gorilla Glass, which protects it from minor scratches and breakage from accidental falls. To add more strength to the phone, Nokia has designed it in a stainless steel shell, which will enhance its longevity too.
The device measures 119.7 x 62.8 x 11.9 mm but is comparatively thin around the edges and weighs 146 grams.
It offers next generation Pentaband 2G/3G network connectivity and 802.11 b/g/n WiFi support along with Bluetooth 3.0 and USB connectivity. The installed 1200mAh battery is expected to give up to 450 hours of standby and 4.5 hours of talk time on 3G networks, and will support the phone for longer on 2G.
The Nokia X7 will cost around 380 Euros, which translates to approximately Rs 25,000.
