Symbian Belle is you must know is said to bring major UI overhaul update as confirmed by Nokia. And these following screenshots is said to point you towards the changes. Belle is designed using some of the MeeGo UI elements. Many new features, rather the improvements is brought to the functionality of the OS.

Very recently, I got lucky to try out the Belle OS on the Nokia E7 and as I tweeted, this is the best Symbian experience, yet! I was hugely impressed by smoothness, usability, UI elements, homescreen etc..

Check out the screenshots below :

Homescreen & Menu

 

New homescreen. On top – Notification bar which is thin and takes very less of screen space. At the bottom – Menu, Call and Option. New and totally re-designed widgets.

Menu changes are bigger icons, app search functionality, long hold on icon to rearrange it, delete or even you can move the apps into a new folder from within.

Notification

Notification bar is pretty similar to the one that you can find on MeeGo or Android phone. Still not sure if app updates or twitter/facebook notification is directly pushed here, or just sent as an alert.

Browser

I have tried this browser(v7.4) personally, trust me the browser is real snappier, and no checker box while loading pages. When you move your finger around the pages you get the little bouncy effect, pinch to zoom is darn smooth. And, bottom of the browser is the quick access buttons to bookmarks, tab switching and more back and more options.

Email

 

The Email app itself is much improved and it performs better than before, there is an email widget too which can be added to homesceen which is totally cool.

Gallery

Gallery app was fast, apt. Nothing impressive nor disappointing.

More screens

 

 

That’s the firmware and other version details. And dialer has quick access features and more. Bigger dial button. Better search functionality, draggable widgets, ample of homescreen space of widgets, new music player widget and lot more other new widgets. Better overall experience.

Now, Nokia. Get this lady out before you get ignored totally.
