Gallery: Leaked Nokia X7-00 Sample Photos

Here are some sample photos taken by the unannounced, leaked Nokia X7-00 (according to Exif data)

Now note, these photos have been reduced to 1024×768 and nor do we know if the people taking photos have been using the digital zoom in certain shots.

With that in mind, the photos look hideous (bar some exceptions which are alright). They look like something you’d expect from HTC, not Nokia. And although it’s Xseries, all of Nokia’s range are pretty OK in camera (going to the mighty levels of N8).

On the upside, this is from an unannounced, possibly non final hardware X7. Also worth noting is that when we saw some not so good camera samples from the likes of E7, some better photos are appearing.

    Given Nokia’s always great cameras and superb levels of experience and ability in this area, if these shots are bad I think we can safely dismiss them as totally irrelevant. Nokia will not release a bad camera in a premium device like this. End of story.

      Y U wishfull thinking Smith? 😛

      The camera in the X7 seems to be the same as the C7/E7/C6 so algorithms should already be in place, now shouldn’t they? Hence the quality should be good.

      Just a major mistake from Nokia putting in those EDoF snappers. All the benefit they have IMHO doesn’t weigh up to the disadvantages.

        Except that the C7/E7/C6 don’t particularly have good cameras.

        Probably not as good as the “low res” camera in prior devices like the X6, N95, N85, etc.

        Agreed though that these EDoF cameras are a big mistake. They’ve set the bar so high with the N8, then followed it up with some below par cameras.

          Yeah, fixed focus cell phone cameras are so 2005.

          Don’t know what Nokia is thinking here, on both a business focused E7 (no business card or document photos with EDoF possible) or an X-series.

          I wouldn’t say that. Nokia’s doing right by implementing EDoF Cameras in these devices because
          1) MOST people just want to take casual snaps of their family trip or of a fun outing with their friends. This means they don’t need a super high-quality camera like N8’s.

          2) With EDoF, you always get focused pictures unless you shoot something closer than 50 cm. But then again, most normal people don’t. And EDoF also makes taking pictures MUCH faster than an AF camera. I bet the rest of the new Symbian phones can take pictures twice as fast as the N8 and EDoF plays a huge role in that.

          Basically, it suits perfectly for the market it’s aimed at.
          But for someone like me, who’s quite into photography and a heavy multimedia consumer, would need N8’s camera and that’s why I actually have an N8 or else I would’ve definitely picked The C7 or waited for E7 over N8.

    I think people have get too critical with cameras on phone. It still is just a phone for most of the users and camera quality just is not issue for them. There is no need to every phone to be amazing camera phone. Beside X7 will be low price device.

    Just put those pictures to web and say that they are taken with There will be fan boys liking the quality to heaven. =)

      True, but with the C6 through to E7 having the same camera is mildly ridiculous – you’ve got a mid range (priced) device having the same camera as the higher priced devices?

      Whilst the overall hardware is definitely a good step forward for Nokia, I don’t obviously see these EDoF cameras being a big selling point, especially when the competition are tending to use autofocus at every price point.

        Well E7-00 is targeted for people that do not need really camera for anything special. There is reason for different models that people take what fits for their needs.

        E7 price comes from security, office and vpn services that integrated with the device. I think there was build in encrypting for memory and may be reason why there is no removable memory option. (not sure about that feature)

          Not quite – autofocus was essential for business card scanning. The comments that you can just take a picture from further away and zoom in are just a little silly.

          And the security/office/vpn do not justify much of a price rise, and somehow the BB devices manage to handle security whilst having removable storage.

            I keep hearing that argument, and Ive checked, but all of my bosses and “management/sales” friends like to collect business cards, not photograph them. And if they would neem them digitally archived, theyd give them to someone to do it (probably scan), they certainly wouldnt manually align and photograph all of them on any phone.

            So “essential” might be a bit of an overstatement. But I forget how important you are.

      The point is that, whether people used them or not, before EDoF Nokia phones had nice cameras, now they don’t.

      I would have no problems if the situation was that only the cheapest phones had a fixed focus camera; but instead Nokia chose that unless you buy the flagship N8, you can only get a fixed focus camera. This is surprising.

    Personally, I am fine with the camera quality for quick clicks… but the missing macro mode in 4 of 5 symbian ^3 products, makes it frustrating.
