Nokia’s nHD 640 x 360 displays have been looking all the more outmoded compared to the WVGA and higher panels rivals offer, and so rumors that the upcoming Nokia E6-00 will up the pixels on offer is a good sign that the trend is changing. According to a Nokia user agent file, the E6-00 will have a 640 x 480 VGA display together with Symbian^3 OS, WCDMA/HSPA, WiFi and a QWERTY keyboard.
There’s also Bluetooth 2.0, GSM/GPRS/EDGE and, unsurprisingly, an ARM CPU confirmed. Photos apparently shot with an E6-00 prototype were spotted on Picasa earlier this month, suggesting an 8-megapixel fixed-focus camera with a dual-LED flash. Otherwise we don’t know whether this will be a touchscreen or non-touch handset, nor what form-factor it might use.
The E6-00, slotting into Nokia’s business-centric line-up, may not be of a huge amount of interest to most consumers, but we can assume that if the company is looking to higher resolution panels on one device then it’s likely to continue that with others. Hopefully we’ll see something to that affect at Mobile World Congress next month.
