As we look at the visible design features of this Nokia E-series business oriented smartphone, we start off by recognizing that the Nokia E55 comes in a range of colors which includes black aluminium, white aluminium and red.
The phone has dimensions that measure 116 x 49 x 9.9 mm, weighing in at 98g. Moving onto the front face of the Nokia E55 there is an ear piece for listening in on calls. Right next to it on the right side there is a secondary video call camera and a sensor on the left side of the ear piece.
Below these there is the TFT display that supports up to 16M colors. Its physical measurements are 2.4 inches with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels.
Below the display on the Nokia E55 you will find a softkey panel which houses the D-pad. On either side of the D-pad you'll find the two softkey buttons, four shortcut hardware keys that give direct access to the Home screen/menu, the calendar, messaging functions and address book. Lastly on the softkey panel there is the call start button and the call end buttons. Below the softkey panel there is a half QWERTY keyboard.
Turning the Nokia E55 over to the right side, there is the camera function button and the volume up and volume down buttons, placed right above the camera button.
