Do you remember the time when 7 Symbian^3 phones leaked out of the Ovi Publisher tool? One of them is the Nokia Oro. Well the first details of that phone emerged yesterday at the rumour mill. A man named Philip tipped MyNokiaBlog that the Nokia Oro appeared on a catalog in a mobile phone shop at Russia, I think. Here goes the story.

"Well, I went to a phones shop called “Svyaznoy” yesterday and took their catalog. And there was the Nokia ORO in the “upcoming” section.Now, let me tell you about some functionality and appearance of the smartphone. First of all, it’ll be a very expensive device like Nokia 8800 or 8600. It’ll cost 44990 Rubles (~$1635). And that fact could be explained by the body materials of the phone. The back side of the ORO is made of natural leather. The front menu keys are made of sapphireand a border is covered with gold. Keys on the right and left sides are covered with goldas well. Software features are pretty similar to that we could see on the Nokia Astound (C7). A list of the other specifications of the phone is written below:
  • Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G, EDGE
  • Display: AMOLED, 3.5″, capacitive touchscreen
  • Camera: 8 MP, HD video recording (720p), front-facing for video calls
  • Internal storage: 8 GB, microSD card slot
  • Talk time: up to 9.6h, stand-by mode: up to 555h
  • Symbian^3
  • GPS
Release date is unknown now but there’s a inscription “Soon” and if it’s written, the phone, probably, will be available next month.The scanned image that proves all of the above is attached to this message."
