Nokia is again relying on its dying legacy of Symbian mobile OS. Recently Nokia has launched its X series of phone with a better and bigger screen. After learning hard lessons with resistive screens, Nokia is now decking its smartphones with AMOLED capacitive screens. As we know that performance wise capacitive screens are better than resistive screens, they can withstand larger temperature variations, they are more responsive than resistive screens. Also Nokia is giving a latest Symbian, code named Anna (Is it in Telgu for big brother ??) .
Nokia is now releasing its next X series phone, Nokia X7, which will succeed its earlier release X6. Specification wise it is in line of N8 with few minor changes here and there. Most interesting thing to notice about X7 is its design, recently Nokia has started making design changes in its every new release. X7 has some sort of flat yet rounded corners.
X7 is having a 4 inch capacitive AMOLED display, capable of showing 16 million colors and a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels. This not the best in the market for a 4 inch display. Nokia is touting X7 to be a entertainment mobile with a 8 megapixel full focus camera capable of shotting 720 p HD recording. Camera also has a dual LED flash. Nokia X7 comes with 8 GB preinstalled and can be upgraded upto 32 GB with microSD. A 1200mAH battery is rated for up to 450 hours standby and 4.5 hours talktime on a 3G network.
