I posted a couple weeks back that two new resolutions would be appearing on FP2 devices but as one should expect, some questioned the credibility of my source. Well, now there's evidence that even you(my readers) can verify for yourselves that proves that WQVGA and VGA will finally be appearing on S60 phones near you.
Recently, I got my hands on a N78 for a few minutes. Within 45 seconds I had it hacked and immediately began exploring the system folders. This is where my discovery came from.
If you want to check for yourself, just follow these simple instructions on your phone:
1) Using any file browser, navigate to Z:\
2) Go to System\Data\Templates.
What do you see? A bunch of folders with numbers for names. These numbers also have something strange in common... They're all resolutions supported by the OS of the phone. If you're using a Symbian 9.1 or 9.2 device, you'll see the following folders:
However, if you're on a Symbian 9.3 device like the N78 for example, you'll see:
See that? VGA and WQVGA resolutions are supported by FP2 and if FP1 is anything to go by, ALL resolutions in the templates folder will be used on atleast 1 device.
So, Nokia, when will we be seeing these new devices?
