Nokia finally announces Nokia E6 and X7 phones, along with Symbian Anna OS refresh

Nokia has finally officially announced two much leaked Symbian models – the Nokia E6 business phone and X7 entertainment phone. Along with the two new models, it has also finally refreshed the Symbian^3 OS, with the Symbian Anna update. New features bring all those little interface details we’ve been hearing about for the better part of a year, in a total of 50 enhancements, including new icons, an improved browser, homescreen, split-screen input, and Ovi Maps application. Find more coverage on the Symbian Anna OS update here.

The Nokia X7 is scheduled to arrive in Q2 2011, and is priced at 380 euros. The Nokia E6 is expected in Q3 2011, with a price of 345 euros excluding subsidies and taxes. The official Nokia E6 and X7 don’t look different from their leaked counterparts, and their specifications come as no surprise either. However, while we all knew Nokia would try to give the E6 a high-resolution touchscreen, it has managed to squeeze in a full VGA resolution (640x480 pixels) on a 2.46-inch display, coming out to a Retina Display-rivalling 326 pixels per inch. In fact, Nokia says the pixel density of the E6 is four times as high as the Nokia E7. Unfortunately, the screen is not Nokia’s ClearBlack Display, but a regular TFT.

The Nokia E6 is another business-centric E-series QWERTY device with a touchscreen, Microsoft Mail for Exchange, Communicator Mobile and SharePoint, allowing support for up to 10 email accounts. It is supposed to deliver up to 14.8 hours of talk time, and nearly a month of standby time. The E6 also has an 8MP camera on board, with dual-LED flash and an EDoF sensor – the same as the E7 and X7, also capable of 720p HD video recording at 25 fps. It has 8GB of built-in storage, expandable with a 32GB microSD card. Find more specifications in the table below – processor details have yet to be revealed.

[RELATED_ARTICLE]The Nokia X7 is a sharply angled phone with a large 4-inch display, the same 360x640 ClearBlack Display screen as the Nokia E7, and Nokia N8 phone. Apart from the same 8MP EDoF camera as the Nokia E6 and E7, it has the same 680 MHz ARM 11 with Broadcom BCM2727 GPU as the Nokia N8 and E7. It has 256MB RAM, 1GB ROM, and will probably come with an 8GB microSD card bundled.
