Nokia E6-00 – the most detailed leak ever – Videos and Pics inside!

| March 29, 2011 | 90 Replies

The Nokia E6-00, which was leaked a number of times already, has now landed in the hands of a user named Quick99 over at NokioTeca forums, and it has got a nice photo/video treatment from him !

We already knew/figured out it’s specs which include :

  • A VGA capacitive (or resistive ??) touch screen ( Screen size not sure yet between 2.5-2.8 ? )
  • A touch and type form factor
  • Same hardware as the N8 and other Symbian^3 devices( ?? )
  • 8 megapixel EDoF camera ( This is confirmed now ) with 720p video recording
  • Runs a different version of Symbian^3 which is adapted to the 4:3 aspect ratio screen

Other details are yet to be figured out, but hey, this guy is in a forum and we are surely going to get a lot more of the device’s information, probably a review too !  Let’s dig into the images now

This is the backside of the device, you can notice the 8.0 megapixel camera , with dual LED flash and a speaker all housed on a slightly elevated (Like the N8) bump, but why ? I don’t know , people say it’s EDoF, but the jury’s out on that one. The battery is user-removable yay ! ( Weirdly enough i should scream considering N8 and E7′s miserable situation ) More or less the back looks like that of the Nokia C7 but a little wider.

Now the front looks pretty similar to what we have been seeing with the E-series range. E71,72 the E5, all carry the same ergonomics. But if you look at all the softkeys, they seem to be capacitive touch buttons. Take a look at the call/end and other shortcut keys except the D-Pad. All look like capacitive buttons ! The Keypad is pretty standard, like what we would expect in a decent phone. Now, the touchscreen, looks like 2.5-3″ ish IMO, non standard icon layout can be seen but i think this is better than the others, what do you think ?

This is the side view, pretty thin. Layout is very similar to C7′s.

This is the part where i let the readers figure out what’s present, nothing special.

The top shows off the power button, 3.5 mm headphone jack and the micro USB input, below, we had already seen the microphone input. So, no 2 mm charging point like the E7 ? Also, i assume no HDMI ?

This is a direct camera sample ( 8 mp ) from the device , pretty good :

And this is a video sample from the device :

And these blurry videos are from the user himself demoing some PR 2.0ish software that the E6 currently runs.


Thanks to the fabulous @camb078 for the tip ! (Cheers Ben and hhh csc for the reminder tips! Also i would like to give the readers a shout for finding discrepancies in the post, much appreciated guys!)

    Nice handset… but I think this will introduce fragmentation to the Symbian^3 platform, where apps need to be written to take advantage of the new screen resolution and orientation. Just remember back then when N80 was released with 352×416 pixel screen compared to normal Symbian 240×320, there are separate downloads for each resolution (if available). Maybe Nokia will introduce automatic scaling of apps?

    • graham says:

      Yes, that’s my fear, that many apps written for the standard S^3 devices might not work properly with this screen.

    • 352x416 says:

      I don’t remember there being different downloads for 352×416 Nokia’s. As far as I remember all applications just installed and worked correctly.

      Maybe there is an automatic scaling in S^3?

    • outdated os says:

      well, there were 352×416 java apps/games exclusive to n95, n80, and e70.

    IF THE ROMOUR SAYS E6-00 HAS EDOF CAMERA THAN ITS NOT A BIG SURPRISE FOR E-SERIES HANDSET WHICH EMPHASIS ON BUSINESS FEATURE RATHER THAN MULTIMEDIA FEATURES.
    STILL WE SHOULD WAIT FOR OFFICIAL SPECIFICATIONS.
    WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN EDOF CAMERA RECORDING 720@24FPS WHICH IA ABOVE PAR THAN HTC,LG,SAMSUNG HANDSET.
    OTHER OEM CANT BEAT NOKIA IN MULTIMEDIA FEATURES.
    ONE NOKIA GUY SAYS EDOF IS THE FUTURE OF SMARTPHONES AND BY BEGINNING OF 2012 PEOPLE WILL APPRECIATE EDOF CAPABILITY.

    Two things about this E6-00 handset really surprised me.
    (1)Decision of Nokia to use a VGA resolution screen even though screen size looks well below 3″.Even nHd resolution could have served the purpose very well, though better resolution is not going do any harm either.It could have been better if N8 & E7 had atleast VGA resolution screens as screen sizes are much bigger.Those 120 pixels could have made deal even more sweeter.
    (2)Decision to use EDoF camera on a business oriented device like E6-00 same as in the case of E7 .Now camera on these devices is going to used for scanning business cards,statements etc for the majority of the time.So camera has be an auto focus one to serve these kind of purposes.Camera resolution is a major issue here but ability to take really close shots is.So it could have made better sense if Nokia could have used even 5 MP auto focus camera unit in E6 as well in E7 rather than using higher resolution EDoF one.Almost every single person who reviewed E7 pointed out the EDoF camera as a major deal breaker against overall good hardware.It could have been better if Nokia had paid some attention to those concerns.

    • 352x416 says:

      Apparently it is 2.4″ same as Vertu Constellation Quest. It is basically the Nokia E72 screen with double the resolution.

      EDoF is a winner. It is very compact camera unit. A focus camera unit is much thicker. With an EDoF camera everything is in foucs all the time. And the photo can be taken instantly without pushing the camera button in half way and waiting for focus then take picture.

      EDoF fits exactly with E Series. Compact. Instant picture. Everything is in focus.

    Sorry ,There was one mistake in the earlier comment :-
    “Camera resolution is a major issue …..” should have been “Camera resolution is not a major issue here………”

  5. woahhh….
