Nokia unveils the Oro – their most expensive phone to date

Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia has announced the Oro handset, a mobile phone that boasts a leather back from one of Scotland’s finest Caledonian herds, 18 carat gold plating, a sapphire crystal and a suitable cost to match.

Nokia’s Oro is made up from premium materials, with a 3.5-inch AMOLED reinforced glass display that is scratch resistant and five times tougher than other screens. There is also an 8megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video recording backing the device, with the Nokia J Bluetooth headset – also, 18 carat gold plated.

Oro goes beyond tri and quad band connectivity with a pentaband radio, plus access to HSDPA 3G and WIFI networks, whilst running from the upcoming Symbian^3 ‘Anna’ OS Supdate.

The Nokia Oro is reportedly no different from other recent Nokia smartphones in the way it operates, with its high grade functionality – only it’s created for the premium phone business world, without the need to choose between the latest specs or a high-end look.

The Oro is arriving in selected markets around the world, such as Europe, Eastern Europe, China and the Middle East sometime after June with a cost attached of over 800 Euros.
