After months of early and last minute leaks and speculation about its future, Nokia has finally made the X7 official. As a member of the Xseries, the X7 is a music centric device that is powered by the latest Symbian^3 OS (apparently called Symbian Anna) that brings 50+ improvements like the split screen keyboard, new browser and drag-able homescreens.
The hardware inside is similar to the last generation of Symbian^3 devices and includes a 680 MHz ARM 11 processor and a Broadcom BCM2727 GPU along with 256 MB of RAM and a 1GB ROM.
The X7 carries a stainless steel construction, a 4″ Clear Black Display and a pretty slim profile. The X7 is 119.7 x 62.8 x 11.9 mm in size and weighs in at 146 g. It also packs an 8 Megapixel camera which is disappointingly another ‘Full Focus’ EDoF variant, similar to the ones, we’ve seen on the C6, C7 and the E7.
The X7 will ship with an 8GB microSD card and come in two colours, Dark Steel and Light Steel. It is powered by a 1300 mAh Li-Ion battery and has a listed talk time of 6h 30 min and 4h 30 min on GSM and WCDMA networks respectively. The device is expected to be available in Q2 at a price of about €380 (£335/$550) before taxes and subsidies.
Sadly, Nokia seems to have given the FM transmitter a miss this time. If you are interested in even more specs, this is the page to go to.
