Nokia C6 and C7 in Photos

Yesterday Nokia announced three new smartphones, all using Symbian, two of which were the C6 and the C7. We'll be posting our impressions of both handsets soon, but until we do we've produced a gallery of revealing photos for you. Details of both handsets can be found in our news story, and you may also want to check out the Nokia E7 that was also announced.

Nokia C6

The C6 is rather more plain-looking than the other new handsets announced, but it's not ugly.

Unlike the E7 and N8, the C6 has call start and end keys as well as the home key.

The operating system if Symbian^3 and it has a sharp, good-looking touch screen.

This (slightly blurry) photo shows the connections, which include mini USB and a headphone jack.

The C6 has an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash

Controls on the edge include a volume rocker and a sliding lock switch.

Does anyone know if these have an FM Transmitter in them like the N series phones?

Official nokia site confirms yes for both.

It's not in the phone specifications on the Nokia site. Where have you seen it?

@ Neil B: http://europe.nokia.com/find-p... under music and audio for the C7

but the C6 just shows FM radio in both section so could be a posible typo error http://europe.nokia.com/find-p...

@Jay: Excellent, I must admit I only looked at the spec sheet for the C6.

@Andy Vandervell - The caption for the first picture starts in the following way: "With its black plastic finish, the C7 is..." First of all, it's the C6 and not the C7, so you should correct that. But more importantly, I can't see how it could have a plastic finish when the casing is stainless steel and the screen is made out of glass. At least according to TR's own story from the previous day, and Nokia's own website.

Something doesn't quite add upp...

I have to say that both these phones seem interesting to me. I will be looking to replace my existing 6700 at the end of the year and have been reluctant to dive into the smart / touch phone market place as I am not interested in a huge phone and couldn't give a hoot about the faceache / twotter support that seems so popular at the mo.

All I want from a phone is the ability to make and receive good quality calls, check my email, calendar and occasionally browse the web. As such, this needs to be a phone that is not that much bigger than the Nokia 6700 and must have a battery life of 2 or more days with proper useage. If it has to be a touch screen then the keypad needs to work.

I quite like the 6700 Classic and only really wish it had Wi-fi, as this would help me avoid the ridiculous UK and roaming mobile data charges.

I will be very interested to see the reviews of both phones, hopefully looking at the new Symbian OS on these smaller handsets. I already know they will be no match for the user friendliness of iOS 4 or Froyo but have Nokia done enough for people not wanting an all in one gadget regardless of phone size?

@JK: I'll have to apologise for a severe brain failure on this occasion. Where the 'plastic' element is concerned it was meant to be in reference to the trim around the screen, but I didn't really make that clear. Cheers for the spot.

The C7 is mine :-)

@Simon J: I'd say go for an E52 and stay awake from touchscreens.

It has nice-sized keys and the wifi you're after, plus a 600MHz processor to keep things nippy and battery life claimed to last a week. Seems a better fit for your needs.

Only think to look into is the early reports of dodgy firmware. I'd assume they've been sorted out by now, but a bit of internet perusing wouldn't hurt.
