Nokia announced a new Symbian Anna smartphone in China that’s ready for NFC-based contactless payments. In addition, the device marked as 801T rocks a 4-inch ClearBlack LCD touchscreen, China Mobile-friendly TD-SCDMA connectivity, 8-megapixel “full-focus” camera with 720p video recording support on the back, VGA front-facing camera, 8GB of built-in storage, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, 256MB of RAM, 3.5mm headset jack, and a microSD card slot with hot swap support. Moreover, there’s mobile TV capability which is enabled with an awkward lookin’ external antenna.
All in all, the Nokia N801T is a mid-range smartphone that will most likely cost about $200 or maybe less. Unfortunately, the Finnish company hasn’t mentioned neither the price nor the release date. As far as we know, it could be out any day now though I guess that’s the decision China Mobile will made rather than Nokia…
Finally, before I let you go, here’s another image of the phone with its external antenna.
