We don’t have any exact local launch date yet for the Nokia’s latest Eseries smartphone, the E7, but it is confirmed to start shipping globally beginning December 10th. This is according to a tweet posted over at the official Nokia Twiiter account, but unfortunately, has since then been removed. It’s a good thing though that GSMArena got a snapshot of it before it was unceremoniously deleted.
The Nokia E7 Is the first touchscreen-equipped Eseries smartphone. It inherits most of its design elements and specs from what many would consider as its twin, the Nokia N8. Just like the latter, it too also runs on a 680MHz processor with Symbian^3 as its OS, and features 720p HD video recording, WiFi, an HDMI slot, and comes with 16GB of internal memory. On the upside, the E7 comes with a bigger 4-inch nHD AMOLED touchscreen, 1GB ROM, a slide-out full QWERTY keypad, and comes equipped with Nokia's new ClearBlack technology to help improve visibility under direct sunlight. The caveat here is that it only comes with an 8-megapixel fixed focus camera and dual LED flash as opposed to the 12-megapixel sensor and Xenon flash on the N8. The Nokia E7 also doesn’t come with a microSD card slot.
Since it’ll only begin shipping in the second week of December, it might not actually make it in time for Christmas in Canada though we’re still keeping our fingers crossed that it will. Hopefully, the next time we talk about the Nokia E7 it'll be about its local release in Canada.
