Nokia E63 live shots, more details on specs

Nokia E63, previously rumored to be called Nokia E72, has recently appeared in a set of live shots, the first ones with the smartphone. These not only that confirm the existence of the device, but they also show the world that E63 has a lot in common with Nokia E71, launched by the Finns a few months ago.

By the way it looks, Nokia E63 seems to be a poorer version of E71. That’s because it’s almost completely made out of plastic (gone is that metallic case of E71) and its features are a bit incomplete.

According to a list of specs found at the Telefon-Treff forum (automatic translation from German), the new Eseries lacks GPS and a front-facing camera.

The handset’s other features, however, are similar to those the E71 offers, including:   

  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE and UMTS/HSDPA connectivity
  • A 240 x 320 pixels display
  • Symbian S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 1
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • A 3.5mm headset jack
  • Flashlight function
  • A camera of at least 2 MP
  • MicroSD card support
  • Micro USB  

 

The new smartphone is also said to be thicker than the E71. But I wouldn’t worry too much. The E71 is only 10mm-thin, so if that “thicker” means 12-14mm, the E63 will still be good in our eyes, right?      

As we previously reported, Nokia E63 should be available in three versions: E63-1 (for Europe/Asia), E63-2 (a no-camera version that might have a bigger internal memory) and E63-3 (for America).   

Now, if only Nokia would officially announce any of these versions…
