There are reports that Nokia will soon announce it final Symbian phone ... ever! The mystery handset is going by the title Nokia 803 and it will apparently employ Nokia's largest image sensor for any smartphone camera.

Just how big will this image sensor be? Well, the source of this information stops short of outright calling this "the largest image sensor in a smartphone ever", so it will at least be 16 megapixels, on par with the HTC Titan II. Of course, maybe the source is referring to the physical size of the sensor and not the maximum resolution. In which case we could see an 8- or 12-megapixel camera that shares the pixels over a larger surface area, and that takes better photos as a result.

Rumours also suggest a 4-inch AMOLED display, presumably using Nokia Clear Black technology, near-field communication connectivity and expandable memory.

While the "largest image sensor" speculation does pique our interest, Nokia will likely have a difficult job winning over current Symbian fans in Australia after delaying the local release of the Symbian Belle firmware update.
