Nokia has revealed three new smartphones – the Nokia C6, Nokia C7 and Nokia E7 – at its Nokia World conference in London. All run the latest version of Nokia’s operating system, Symbian^3, which it claims is quicker and easier to use.
The devices join the previously announced Nokia N8 in Nokia’s Symbian^3 smartphone line up. All three new models have customisable homescreens and can access downloads from the Nokia Ovi Store.

Nokia C6-01 and Nokia C7
The Nokia C6-01 is a mid-range smartphone that bears little resemblance to the Nokia C6 launched earlier in 2010. It has a 3.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen display (the smallest screen of the three handsets announced) and is equipped with an 8Mp auto-focus camera. This can record HD video at 30 frames per second and there’s also a secondary camera for making video calls.
The C6-01 is wi-fi and HSDPA-capable for fast web access and has a GPS receiver.
The Nokia C7 has the same features as the C6-01 but has a larger (8GB) internal memory and a bigger 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen display.
This handset is aimed at business users and has a 4-inch touchscreen display and a sliding Qwerty keyboard.
Like the Nokia N8, the E7 has an HDMI-port with support for Dolby Digital Plus Sound so you can play back HD content stored in the phone’s large (16GB) internal memory.

Nokia’s ClearBlack technology
All three phone’s have 640×360 pixel resolution displays and use Nokia’s new ClearBlack technology. Nokia claims that this produces more vibrant colours and ensures that the screen is easier to view in bright sunlight.
UK prices and networks have yet to be announced though all three devices are expected to launch towards the end of this year.
In Europe the C6, the cheapest handset in the range, is expected to retail at €260 (around £217), the C7 at €335 (around £280) and the E7 at €495 (around £413).
