Nokia has today announced two new S40 based phones, the C2-05 and the X2-05. While the C2-05 has a slider form factor, the X2-05 has a candy-bar form factor.
The C2-05 has a 2-inch screen with QVGA (320×240) resolution, along with a dual-band GSM antenna. At the back of the handset is a VGA camera with digital zooming capabilities. Nokia quotes the battery life of the C2-05 at around 20 days on standby, and/or 4 hours of talk time.
The X2-05 has a bigger 2.2-inch screen with QVGA resolution. Being a music-oriented phone, the handset has a very loud loudspeaker, rated at 106phons. Like the C2-05, the X2 also has a VGA camera at its back. Nokia rates the X2-05 battery life at around 25 days on standby, and or four hours of talk time.
Both the handsets feature an MP3/MP4 player, FM radio, Bluetooth, microSD card slot and a built-in voice recorder. The phones will also come with Nokia Browser and access to the Nokia Store, along with dedicated Facebook and Twitter clients. In China, the handsets will come pre-loaded with a special app for access to the social network QQ.
The C2-05 will be available in a variety of colors including pink, peacock blue and dynamic grey, while the X2-05 will be available in Black, White, Silver, and Bright Red. The handsets will be available sometime in Q4 of this year, with the former costing 50 Euros and the latter being priced at 46 Euros, before taxes and subsidies.
