GLOBAL – People who have the latest Symbian Nokia smartphones can now update them to Nokia Belle – bringing a fresh look to their screens thanks to the latest user interface. Once you have installed Nokia Belle you will still have the same phone, but it will feel like new, with improved performance.
When we announced that Nokia Belle was coming soon, we meant it. Starting today, with Nokia Belle, you’ll be able to transform your Nokia N8, Nokia E7, Nokia E6, Nokia X7, Nokia C6-01, Nokia C7, or Nokia Oro device, by adding a whole load of enhancements. For Nokia 500, Nokia Belle will be made available within the next few weeks.
Nokia Belle delivers more personalisation options than before. You can have up to six home screens that are easy to personalize, leaving all your favourite applications and services only a few taps away. New larger live widgets display what’s really important to you right onto the homescreen, so you’ll always be kept up-to-date. Want to place a shortcut from one screen onto another? That’s simple. A long press and a drag to the side of the screen moves it to that screen.
The new and improved Nokia Belle interface also includes new features like imaging applications with HD video recording at 30 frames per second and a visually improved browser enabling high-quality browsing and viewing of Web videos. The menus have been simplified and a notifications bar has been added to make accessing key settings or features, very fast. Plus, with Belle you can also boost your productivity on the go with a wider selection of powerful Microsoft® Apps, such as Lync and OneNote that will soon be available for free download on top of Nokia Belle. Stay tuned – more details to follow shortly!
Nokia Belle will be available in the majority of the markets today, including countries like India, Russia, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Poland, UK, Germany, Italy, Vietnam and Indonesia. You can check the availability of Nokia Belle in your country in our Nokia Belle pages – including the Nokia Belle update rollout status.
As Nokia Belle is a major update, you’ll need to connect your phone to a PC to perform the update. To start, make sure you have the latest version of Nokia Suite (3.3 or later) running on your computer, and then connect your phone to the computer with a USB cable. For a step-by-step download tutorial, there’s a video available that tells you everything you need to know.
