Pictures Of Symbian-based Nokia 700 Zeta Smartphone Emerge

Photos of what appears to be the apparent successor to the mid-range Nokia C6-01 have surfaced on the internet with some rather interesting titbits.

GSMArena writes that the anonymous source who sent the photos, four in all, did not confirm whether the phone would come with a 1GHz SoC inside as other rumours point to.

But they did indicate that there would be a 3.2-inch nHD AMOLED screen (640x360 pixels), that the Nokia 700 - also known as Zeta or the N7 - would weigh around 80g and be only 10mm thick; designwise, the handset reminds us of a smaller version of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10.

Other details that have emerged include a five-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash, NFC (near field communications) capabilities, Wi-Fi, Symbian Belle (which is itself an upgrade to Symbian Anna) and a 1080mAh battery.

No details about a potential front facing webcam, onboard memory and storage, the official release date or availability have been published yet. Expect the price of some Nokia handsets to fall abruptly as stocks are cleared to make way for the new handsets.

That said, the C6 Black currently costs as much as £233, which is significantly more than we'd expect from a mainstream smartphone and only £30 less than the Samsung Galaxy S.
