Nokia is likely to announce three new Symbian Belle running smartphones next week. The devices, Cindy (Nokia 600), Zeta (Nokia 700) and Helen (Nokia 701), which were leaked a couple of months ago, all feature a 1GHz processor and have somewhat similar specs. Helen is rumored to have a 3.5-inch clear black touchscreen display, an 8.0 MP camera and will be the successor to the Nokia C7. Zeta (pictured above) is expected to sport a 3.2-inch AMOLED display, NFC and a 5.0 MP camera. Finally, Cindy will play on music with a built-in FM radio antenna, a 3.2-inch AMOLED display, NFC and a 5.0 MP camera.

We expect Nokia to market these three devices (along with the Nokia 500) by playing up their 1GHz processors, which would enable it to take on some Android smartphones. Generalizing specifications (notice all four of them sport the same processor and three of them the same 5.0 MP camera despite expected to have a price differential) will also help Nokia to undercut its competitors on price. While these are not quite in the league of the MeeGo-running N9, we think these four devices (including the 500) should be able to put a good show in markets like India, where Nokia still retains its street cred.

On a personal note, I never thought I’d be ever saying this (especially after I wrote this) but I think Nokia will be able weather the storm it currently finds itself in.
