Nokia N96 Dreamed Up

Mobile Diva Darla Mack is at it again. I guess it’s great having creative fans :)

In January she posted an image of, most likely, phoptoshopped Nokia N99 with a specs of a dream phone.

Now she has another e-mail from someone with another creative speculation of how Nokia N96 may look like:

nokia-n96.jpg

Since Nokia N96 comes out before N99, the specs are also less impressive, but still interesting:

  • 8.5 mm, 7.1 megapixel camera and 20x optical zoom
  • symbian 9.5
  • 3″ screen – VGA rezolotion
  • Live TV – HDTV
  • 8GB (internal memory I’m assuming)
  • GPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • MP3
  • Bluetooth and more

If not for 20x optical zoom (c’mon where do you put it in the phone that thin!) and HDTV ( let’s get normal TV working on the phones first) other specs are quite possible even this year.

Symbian 9.5 is here, Sharp 904SH with VGA screen is already shipping, GPS, Wi-Fi, MP3 and even 8GB of flash memory is a nobrainer, 7.1 mpx camera is a real possibility. As for the 8.5 mm thickness, Samsung U300 is 9.6 mm thin and they just have shaved off another 1.2 mm off their LCD screens.

So while this Nokia N96 looks like a pure fantasy, it provides us with a useful exercise to think of how advanced smartphones may look next year. Have any ideas?

Update: It was a nice concept for some speculation. But now the pictures of Nokia N96 leaked to the Net, the specs too. And the pictures are very different from the from drawing above, but the specs (except for the camera), are not that far off base.

    NOKIA N96 is similar as n93, all the features are same.But the difference is that n96 is slimmer than n93.My request is that n96 should be far different from n93

    Stop dreaming everyone!
    The post says it’s a photoshop dream.
    BUT, today Oct 24th, I spotted what the the lucky dude owner said it’s N96!
    YES! It is a nice big candybar with touch screen seeming to be the now popular 2.8 inches VGA. To the bottom there is the regular T9 keypad with very wide but too short 12 buttons. In the back of the phone there seemed to be a couple of MP camera with macro toggle slider aside. Other than that I was stunned to to see it first with some fellow geek Egyptian in the metro (underground), who got his claws on from a friend who grabbed it from Italy. Brevto Italia, yet my guess it’s a pre-production that was sold to the geek dude by more than 1 grand US$ in local pounds that pounded the “friend” pocket. Still lucky dude that screen what I want to see on every phone from now on, with WinMo, LinuxMo, Symbian S60 or PalmOS. Hear me Palm Inc.
