A little over a month ago, you may remember us posting regarding the Nokia C6 being In Stock here at mobiles.co.uk. Well, if the latest rumours, snapshots and model number are to be believed, the Nokia C6 already has a successor in the pipeline; the Nokia C6-01. The confusing naming conventions adopted recently by the finns are not only causing confusion amongst the public but also with networks too it would seem given that the leak which comes from Vivacom, a Bulgarian network provider, was spotted by eagle eyed viewers of an advert which pictured the C6-01 in an advert for the C6-00.
The C6-01 was also spotted on Nokia’s Dutch Online storefront along with specs that would point towards the C6 losing it’s QWERTY keyboard, gaining an 8 megapixel camera in place of the 5 megapixel on the current model and is also said to be sporting Symbian^3 OS where the current is stuck running on Symbian S60. The C6-01 is also said to have a nHD screen as well as 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity. Surely then, the C6-01 would be more of an upgraded alternative, than a successor – contrary to what the naming conventions would indicate.
Aside from the aforementioned spec changes, it would appear that the Nokia C6-01 remains very similar to the original, still keeping an almost identical form, although with slightly redesigned hardware keys on the face and a re-worked back which includes a relocated camera, a Dual LED flash and a speaker. Price is said to be around 280 Euros and we expect the official announcement from Nokia to be around the time of Nokia World 2010 on September 14th. (Image from MobileGeek via Engadget)
