Well, a few days ago Nokia announced at its developer page its new handset named as Nokia 801T. Nokia also released the technical specs of the device and it is now being made available to the public in China only at the moment. So, it is a touch screen device and you can compare it with the X7, as they are very much similar. But the Nokia 801T is the larger device having 4 inch clear black LCD Display screen while it is powered by an ARM11 680 MHz processor under the hood.
The processor is accompanied by a graphics accelerator as well. Other specifications of the device are similar to some of the usual smartphones like all the relevant sensors including accelerometer, proximity, ambient lighting and compass. Nokia 801T will be available for both GSM and CDMA network connections. As far as the cost is concerned, Nokia 801T Price in Pakistan might be around 30,000/- Rs figure, however, we shall update the actual rate once phone is released into the market. One thing to take account of is that price might vary from region to region.
Attached TV Antenna
Well, another interesting aspect of this handset is that it will be coming with an antenna, yes an actual TV antenna. So, all I could figure out is that users will be able to receive TV signals and will be watching Television on their phones. I cant say it is something very new or unique but still its good to see big manufacturers like Nokia to try new things.
Other Important Features
As you can see in the image, the device will be having a metal uni-body. Nokia 801T reportedly runs on Symbian Anna and it will also be featuring NFC functionality. Nokia 801T will be having an 8 MP rear camera which will also be able to record 720p videos at 30 fps. Additionally, a front facing VGA camera will also be included for the self portraying pleasures as well as the video calling. Well, we have no confirmation about the internal storage memory of the device yet but it is certain that it will be supporting microSD memory cards for additional memory and the device is also equipped with Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi connectivity features.
As I mentioned above, the Nokia 801T is currently available in Chinese market but we are yet to receive word from Nokia on the release date and price of the device in other countries.
As the phone has just recently been announced in the Nokia Event event last year during December, we can’t be so sure about the exact release date of this phone as of now, but going through Nokia’s track record, they usually release the phone with in 2 to 4 months of initial official announcement, however, they often get picky on regions for release of their mobile phones, such as Nokia N9 was only released in some Asian and middle eastern countries, Nokia 800 in Europe and now releasing Lumia 900 in USA region. 801T can see similar fate, or might not.
