Nokia Belle FP1 Update Out for Nokia 603/701, Boosts CPU to 1.3GHz

Soon after it delivered the long-awaited Nokia Belle upgrade to all Symbian Anna devices in its portfolio, the handset vendor promised another major update for the latest smartphones launched on the market last year.

Although lots of other Symbian phones have been left out, such as Nokia N8 and C7, the fact that the Finnish company is trying to improve the Symbian experience offered by its newest devices must mean something.

Dubbed Feature Pack 1 (FP1), the update seems to be live in several regions, including Italy and the UK. The folks at Nokialino have just learned that Nokia Belle FP1 can now be downloaded via Nokia Software Updater, which also received a new update.

For the time being, it has been reported that FP1 is only available for Nokia 603 and 701, though the Finnish company confirmed the update would be delivered to Nokia 700 units as well.

The most important change that Nokia Belle FP1 brings to these three smartphones is the speed boost improvement of the integrated processors.

Nokia 603, 700 and 701 are equipped with a 1 GHz single-core processor, but once the FP1 is applied, their CPUs will be automatically clocked at 1.3 GHz. 

The weird thing is that Nokia confirmed this new change only for 700 and 701 models, but it looks like the 603’s processor will also receive a speed boost.

Other improvements offered by Nokia Belle FP1 include Dolby Headphone and Dolby Digital Plus, enhanced personalization options, and no less than 20 new and improved widgets.

Furthermore, the notifications and multitasking bars have been improved, while the integrated browser got faster and now supports HTML5. The latest version of Nokia Maps is available as well, along with Microsoft Apps.

On a side note, Nokia 808 PureView will be shipped with Nokia Belle FP1 out of the box, so users won’t have to install this update. However, it’s unclear what will happen with older Symbian smartphone that already received the Nokia Belle update.
