Nokia N8 and E7 smartphones will be upgraded to the Symbian Anna operating system in the month of July this year, the Finnish handset maker has said in an official Facebook post.
The update will be available over the air internationally but Indian users will have to update their smartphones using the Nokia Ovi suite as Indian telecom service providers still do not provide support for over the air updates.
It is expected that Nokia India will also make the update available for Indian users at the same time but looking at the past updates it is expected that the update might get a slight delay.
Either with or after the Anna update, Nokia will also upgrade the camera of its flagship smartphone, the N8. With this update, the Nokia N8 will get newer video recording capabilities, with continuous auto focus, while recording HD 720P video. Besides, N8 users can record videos in 30 frames /second as opposed to present 24 frames/second.
As reported by ‘The Mobile Indian’, the Upgrade to Symbian Ann will be a voluntary upgrade and user who wish to upgrade their smartphones to this operating system can upgrade, rest of the user will be given continuous support for the present Symbian S60 ^3 as usual.
