NFC Nokia N5 goes comes through the FCC, could this be the Nokia Cindy?
Another day, another Nokia phone clears the FCC – today it was the turn of the RM-701 which is suspected to be the Nokia N5. This time spotted by Wireless Goodness, the FCC documentation clearly shows that this phone is an NFC phone, but that leaves us a little puzzled because a leaked document that was floating about on June 29th displayed the (Nokia 701) as the Nokia Helen, which was not an NFC phone as you can see in the images below. However, the Nokia 600 (Code name Nokia Cindy) looks to be a more likely, which has been leaked and identified as an NFC phone. The Nokia N5 is set to run Symbian Anna which is not the latest version of the operating system, better known as Belle, and can be found on the upcoming Nokia Zeta.
NFC Nokia N5 rumored specifications
Like the Nokia Zeta which already passed through the FCC the other day (see here) the N5 is said to have an attractive price. The Nokia N5 appears to be aimed at the young’uns and also has the claim of being an NFC phone, but we think it may be of the non-secure element flavor. It features an in built FM radio and antenna and also boasts a 1GHz thinker. As with the Nokia Zeta, the Nokia N5 also comes adorned with a 5 megapixel camera and the same 3.2 inch nHD AMOLED display. Nokia has even mentioned some apps that will ship with the Nokia N5, including Skype, Shazam, YouTube and VLingo. The specs we have so far show another interesting slate coming out of Espoo featuring NFC sweetness that could be just around the corner.
NFC Nokia N5 FCC documentation gives clues to carrier
According to the FCC documentation, the Nokia N5 comes with 3G radios that’ll work on UMTS 850/1900/2100, which tells us it will probably go to AT&T and / or T-Mobile with this particular rendition of the phone, which makes sense as most Nokia phones are GSM. We think The Nokia N5 RM-701 will also be an NFC phone that lacks a secure element, or the software to support a third party secure element. So, no NFC payments with this phone.

Pricing, internal storage and details are all still to be released. It shouldn’t be long until we know a lot more about the Nokia N5, now it’s come through the FCC.
