The Nokia 5320 and 5220 have just been announced, one S60 and one S40 powered, more than an hour after the live webcast was supposed to start. I love to include ultra high resolution images in my post when new devices are announced, read on after the jump.
Let’s start with the lower end device first. The 5220 will be coming out in Q3 for 160 EUR and it is a triband GSM/EDGE device. There will be two versions, one 850/1800/1900 MHz, the other 900/1800/1900 MHz. It will have a 2 inch 240 x 320 resolution screen with 256k colors, weighs only 78 grams and is 108 x 43.5 x 10.5 mm small. Included is a 2 megapixel camera, 3.5 mm headphone jack with dedicated HiFi audio chipset, FM radio and Bluetooth A2DP support. The 1020 mAh battery should let you play back music for 24 hours, which would be great if you could stick an 8 GB memory card in there, but this device’s data sheet [PDF] claims a max of 2 GB. More images can be seen here.
Now the 5320 will be 220 EUR and for that amount of money you’re getting quad band GSM/EDGE and dual band 3.6 Mbps HSDPA. There will be one version with 850/2100 MHz HSPDA and another with 900/2100 MHz HSDPA. You get a 2 inch 240 x 320 resolution display with 16 million colors.
No word as to the version of S60 this device runs, but I wouldn’t hesitate to predict it is S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2. The 5320 has S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2, thanks Jukka. This 90 gram device is 108 x 46 x 15 mm and has a 3.5 mm headphone jack with a dedicated HiFi audio chip that should give you better playback quality and enable a whopping 24 hours of listening time, which is bold claim since the 5320 only has a 890 mAh battery. With microSDHC support you can shove an 8 GB card in here and higher capacities once they become available. This is the first S60 device to support high speed USB 2.0 transfer, I’ll have to get one in the lab to see just how fast that really is, I always recommend getting a dedicated card reader to save yourself the hassle of waiting for the progress bar to finish. 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth A2DP support and something called “Say and Play” where you can say an artist or song name and the device will start playing it are also included.
