The C7 successor arrives sporting some new hardware as well as new software in the form of Symbian Belle.
The Nokia C7 was and is a sexy device, the same sexiness now lives on in the new Nokia 701 sporting the same design with some colored hardware.
Imagine a C7 with a 1GHz processor, 512 MB RAM , a new graphics co processor with 4x more memory and a higher clock, replace the Amoled screen with the brightest IPS LCD available and coat it with Clear back display, bam ! you got the new Nokia 701.Every other spec is same as the C7, for a total coverage of the C7, check here.
Important difference to note here is the display which is of IPS type, not AMOLED. This is supposedly the brightest screen ever in a smartphone ( measured in NITs). Previously according to GSM arena, the E6 had the brightest screen ever, is the same technology being adapted ? what does the clear black coating mean for LCDs ? What graphics co processor is present in the device, which is supposedly an upgrade over the previous generation ? Some questions like these need answering.
The 701 is supposedly the only mid-high range device launched today, other two are mid and low-mid range. This costs 420 USD before taxes and subsidies. Pretty neat eh ?
