Nokia continue their march towards global domination of the touchscreen market with yet another smartphone. A leaked photo revealed the second member of the Cseries - Nokia C6. Being basically a trimmed-down version of the Nokia N97 flagship, the QWERTY-enabled C6 will appeal to those wanting good all-round functionality on a tighter budget.
Nokia C6 will be the third side-slider in the S60 5th edition family and according to the new naming convention, adopted by the Finnish company it shouldn’t be much pricier than the Nokia C5 (135 euro before taxes). The Nokia C6 only has 256 MB of internal memory (compare to 32 GB in Nokia N97 and 8GB in N97 mini) and seems to drop the steel frame in favor of an all-plastic body.
The tilting LCD is also removed in the Nokia C6, probably to make space for the extra row on the keyboard. Fortunately, the 3G connectivity and the microSD card slot have been retained. Since there is no official announcement just yet the rest of the specs are pretty much a mystery for now but a nHD (640 x 360 pixels) screen and GPS seem like a perfectly safe bet.
We’ll keep you posted once more information becomes available.
