Nokia has unveiled its latest clamshell handset, which is supposed to mirror a high-end luxury phone without the matching high-end luxury price tag. The 6555 is a 3G handset with a large analogue clock on its front fascia.

The WCDMA and quad-band GSM handset has an internal screen of 240 x 320 pixels, that’s also capable of displaying 16m colours, which Nokia claims will provide a brilliant and crisp resolution despite being twice as many colours as the human eye can see.

Tech specs are still sketchy, but the handset does feature an onboard camera, with a 6x zoom and a full screen portrait viewfinder. The camera also incorporates a self-portrait function to help users snap themselves perfectly.

The phone also features 30MB of internal memory and a Micro SD card slot, in addition to Bluetooth.

Nokia describes as a handset for "discerning customers", who also seek "an ergonomic user experience". But we’ll let you make up your own minds on that one.

The Nokia 6555 will be available next month, with the retail price dependent on network tariff.
