Luxurious Nokia Oro announced. No, it doesn’t run Windows Phone (video)

While being busy testing Windows Phone Mango handsets, Nokia has found the time to introduce yet another Symbian Anna-based smartphone, namely the Nokia Oro (“oro” means gold in Italian).

The Oro is nothing more than a luxury edition of the Nokia C7, so it has the same features: 3.5 inch AMOLED display, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 8MP camera, 8GB of on-board memory, and so on. It is coated with scratch-resistant 18-carat gold, its battery cover is encased in leather, and its home button is made out of real sapphire crystal.

There are two version of the Oro: Nokia Oro Dark and Nokia Oro Light.

Nokia plans to sell the Oro starting Q3 in select European markets (including Russia), the Middle East, and China. The handset is targeted at users who are looking for “products with a build quality and superior materials that attest to their success and social standing.” Yes, that means rich people.

Nokia says the Oro will cost at least €800 (about $1,250). Until the smartphone hits the market, here’s a video preview of it:
