The most striking thing about the Nokia Oro is that it is plated in 18-carat gold, studded with a sapphire crystal home key, and lined with leather. Of course it’s a phone, smartphone. In fact it’s your good old C7 in the inside, but it has been beautified to make it the classy Oro.
The phone works on Symbian-based software and also has the most recent Symbian Anna update. The Oro enables users to enjoy HSDPA 3G and Wi-Fi support. The device comes with a 3.5-inch AMOLED display, pentaband radio connectivity and an 8-megapixel camera with 720p video recording to provide an excellent viewing experience.
This luxury smartphone is expected in the beginning of next quarter, but that is only in selected countries across Middle East, Europe and Russia. The Nokia Oro must be particularly eying Russia as the place is known as a successful market for such premium collections. The price is said to be upwards of €800 ($1,126), excluding taxes.
