Most Nokia news these days surrounds its Windows Phone 7 efforts, but the Nokia 700 “Zeta” reminds us that Symbian handsets are still floating in the pipeline. It looks like a nice phone for those who are looking for a simple smartphone without all the bells and whistles of the higher-end Android or Windows Phone devices out there. It is running Symbian Belle, the successor to Anna.
However, it doesn’t look like this will be a bottom-of-the-barrel device. Word is that it is equipped with a 1GHz processor, which is pretty much standard fare these days, 3.2-inch nHD AMOLED display (nHD is what Nokia uses for 640 x 360 resolution screens). The Nokia 700, or Zeta, is pretty lightweight at just 80g, and 110 x 51 x 10mm, so it’s pretty thin, but not the thinnest phone ever.
GSM Arena reports:
From the photo, you can see that the camera is a 5MP unit and has a LED flash. We can’t guess at whether or not it has autofocus though. Also, the Nokia 700 has NFC connectivity, which Nokia seems to be warming up to following the Nokia N9 announcement.
Other specs that the tipster managed to get out of the Nokia 700 (which as we speculated might be called N7) is that it runs Symbian Belle (an update to Anna) and packs Wi-Fi b/g/n. There’s also fast HSPA speeds (10.2Mbps or 14.4Mbps downlink and 5.76Mbps uplink). The battery was a 1080mAh unit.
We haven’t heard much about the Nokia 700 Zeta, so we can’t comment on release dates, pricing or regions/countries where it will be released. But stay tuned and we’ll share our findings as soon as we come across them!
