MWC: Nokia unveils N86 8MP


Nokia has unveiled the ‘N86 8MP’, its first 8-megapixel cameraphone.

The phone comes with a wide-angled Carl Zeiss lens for panoramic pictures, shorter latencies and variable aperture for improved quality in bright and low light conditions. It comes with a dual LED flash and mechanical shutter for less motion blur.

The N86 8MP includes 8GB of internal memory that can be increased using a 16GB microSD card, as well as offering a bright OLED display with scratch resistant hardened glass, full sync capability with a PC and TV-out support.

It comes with the latest version of Nokia Maps, full Ovi integration and built-in compass, along with an integrated three-month license for full voice and pedestrian navigation. The phone also offers an integrated kick-stand for watching videos and playing games

Nokia Nseries director Juha-Pekka Sipponen said: “People demand mobile cameras that take excellent pictures in all light conditions. That’s why the aperture of the Nokia N86 8MP is comparable to that of a high quality, stand-alone digital camera.

“Whether it’s running with the bulls in Pamplona or capturing the panoramic beauty of a sunrise over Sydney, the Nokia N86 8MP will take brilliantly clear, wide-angle images that are instantly geotagged to be uploaded onto sites like Ovi Share or Flickr.”

The Nokia N86 8MP is expected to begin shipping in Q2 with an estimated retail price of €375 (£332), before taxes and subsidies.
