Symbian-based camera phone is coming soon, to follow the famous N8 and now it appears that this model is here, through the Nokia 801. This device borrows the design from the N9 and Lumia 800 and implements Symbian Belle on it, as shown below. Of course, that’s a real picture and not a photo-shopped one !
Sources say that Nokia has one more Symbian hit smartphone and that’s it, so this might just be that magical device. It’s rumored to be a camera-focused affair, with impressive optics, Belle as the OS and the polycarbonate shell that made the Lumia 800 famous. Nokia 801 has a 4 inch ClearBlack AMOLED display with a 360 x 640 pixel resolution, a 1.4 GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and a 12 megapixel autofocus camera with dual LED flash. That flash is a bit of a downgrade compared to the Xenon one on the N8, but at least we get 1080p video recording.
This could just be the last Symbian phone ever, so keep a close eye on this one, folks… MWC 2012 will be here in two weeks and we might just see it showcased by Nokia at its booths and introduced during the conference on the 27th.
