Symbian has now become one of the most unsuccessful platform in the mobile industry right now, but it does not mean that it is not being used. At this time, there are millions of cell phone users who are still hanging on to a Symbian powered device. Nokia has already moved to Windows Phone and it also has Android as its backup plan, but the company is still making some new Symbian devices to keep its entry level customers happy.
Well, it seems like Nokia is also making some new developments to the Symbian operating system. A couple of days ago, a new YouTube video was released that showed some sneak preview of Nokia Belle Feature Pack 2 build. The video was posted by a Symbian developer, who is working on this on Nokia’s RDA service.
As you can see in the video below, the shown Nokia Belle FP2 is running on an emulator instead of an actual device. But still, we can get a very good idea of all the new features and improvements that are going to be included in this build. First of all, the unlock screen uses swipe gestures, which is a first time in the Symbian device. On the other hand, the camera UI has also been improved a little bit. When you are playing some music on your device, you will be able to access the audio player right from your Notification bar. In addition to that, Nokia Belle FP2 update will also bring predictive text input and intelligent auto complete function that will make texting experience much quicker and smoother. Last but not the least, the web browser is also greatly enhanced in this update and you will experience a lot of new improvements in it.
You have to keep in minds that that all the above mentioned enhancements are the ones that are only expected to arrive in the Nokia Belle FP2 update. The confirmed list of changes will be officially released when the update is rolled out by the manufacturer. So, if you have a Symbian handset right now, it seems like you will be getting some new features after all.
