Nokia has announced the new C7 smartphone, the bigger brother of the C6 smartphone that Pocket-lint has brought you news of previously.

The C7 features a 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen display with a pretty average 640 x 360 pixel resolution.

It is described as making "extensive use of metal" in the bodywork, which is a svelte 10.5mm thick. The overall dimensions read out as 117.3 x 56.8 x 10.5mm and a weight of 130g.

The Nokia C7 is a Symbian 3 handset, bringing with it the normal social networking connectivity as well as a host of widgets and live updates to keep you in the picture.

Talking of pictures, the C7 features an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, capable of capturing HD video at 720p, 25fps.

To keep you connected you get HSDPA/CDMA, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, as well as the GPS. Being a Nokia device, it also comes with Ovi Maps and Nokia's free navigation.

Internally you get 8GB of memory with microSD card support allowing addition of up to an additional 32GB.
