Official: Nokia Belle coming on 8th February 2012 (to Vietnam). #Symbian

| January 29, 2012 | 57 Replies

Now I’m not sure about everywhere else, Nokia most likely will try to get a close to a global release as they can but at least there is a confirmed date somewhere.

Mark this in your diaries.


8th February 2012.

That’s on time based on the official Nokia Belle update dates (though not if we remember the Q4 2011 expectations). Apparently there was a critical bug that meant that those Anna, S^3 handsets could not be given the update. Belle seems to be fine on the original Belle units but of course, their hardware is slightly different and geared towards Belle.

These official dates can be seen from Nokia Vietnam. I’ve checked a few Nokia sites in other countries but can’t find a similar page.

You can see this belle information here:

Thanks to @Nokianesia for the tip!

    Saw this earlier..I couldnt find any other sites with similar dates, but hopefully it will appear on navifirm anyday now?

  • stylinred

    id like to get the HK version of belle so that i can have chinese support as well as english

    • Adam

      When its out on navifirm just swop your rofs2 with a one with the languages you want and flash your phone.

    • kolokoyme

      I have a HongKong Version of N8.Yeah! it has chinese input but no split screen and no fm transmitter

  • Adam

    Why isn’t the c7 not mentioned in the bottom? Its shown in the pic but not mentioned on the bottom???

    • yasu

      It’s a typo, the E7 is mentioned twice.

    • incognito

      They’ve made a typo – mentioned the E7 twice, instead of the C7…

    • Gst

      Wat about nokia 500?

  • Stound

    haha I its shocking how belle runs on my n8 smoothly 🙂 a truly different experience from anna (I have a leaked version)

  • Gerii

    No love for the Nokia 500?

    • 352×416

      I think Nokia did say Nokia 500 will get Belle.

  • SequeStyle

    the beta belle is already stable, is there anything new in the final belle? does anyone know?

    • pjasinow

      I’d like to know as well.

      • dss

        I assume that whatever bug there was in the earlier versions, is fixed in the final..

  • misterstu

    Great story Jay – many thanks

    the guide on nokia Vietnam site makes it clear that belle will not be available over the air and the phone can be updated only using nokia suite.

    • jill

      that was true from the beginning ..

      as per what i have read .. it will completely flash ur phone .. u can restore back the data u have backed up .. certain applications will not work etc etc

  • nyapinkid

    maybe in official belle we will get microsoft office that promised before

  • amoshydra

    But those microsoft office isn’t even available in the new Belle device e.g. Nokia 701 yet…

  • Michael Faro-Tusino

    I have seen it stated several times Belle is only via NSU as such a large update would cause issues like Anna did to S^3.

    Also, although no release date, Nokia Sites such as the Australian and New Zealand one, have the user manuals for N8 with Belle. Yet no notification of when Belle is coming.

    yes, Symbian Belle will be officially released this February 8. Isn’t exciting for the Symbian 3 loyalists? Sure. Take a look at here>

    hope there will be a few more “belle widgets” and apps with new widgets after belle gets availible for more devices.

  • Linh

    Hope its build number is bigger than 609, the 609 build works badly with GPS, it takes too long or cannot determine location.

    • incognito

      Try using instead of for the location server – in many areas Google works much faster…

  • Can’t wait… I have Anna right now and it’s so horrible with response time. I really hope Belle improves it… considering getting rid of my E7. Just can’t take it anymore :-(.

  • BellGo

    I am not sure if should get my hopes up, but this seems official enough.. So, looking forward to it! =)
