Nokia sends Symbian Event Invites for April 12

Finnish handset maker Nokia has sent out invites for a Symbian smartphone focused event scheduled for April 12. BoyGeniusReport noted that the event will take place in London. Will Nokia show new Symbian smartphone or Symbian update at this event? Nothing can be inferred from the invite but it certainly seems like a major Symbian update.

Back in December, Nokia promised that about four to five updates to Symbian operating system would be released in this year and in the first half of 2012. Gunther Kottzieper, senior manager at Nokia China, in his presentation at the International Mobile Internet Conference in Beijing stated that more than 50 enhancements would be added in four to five Symbian upgrades.

These new Symbian upgrades are said to bring a new look and feel for UI, more flexible home screen, updateable HTML5 browser, and better software update experience are being planned for the second and third quarter of this year.

We've been promised dual-core 1Ghz processor based Nokia smartphones with "true zoom camera" in the fourth quarter of this year. Maybe Nokia is eager to show a sneak peek of the device. There's no confirmation on that as of now.

Apparently, HTC too is having a smartphone event on same date in London. So it's going to be sort of a clash, unless they're going to launch the devices which have already been announced.
