2 versions Nokia N85 pass through FCC

It’s not a big secret that a new NSeries handset –  Nokia N85 is in the works and should be announced pretty soon.

We’ve even seen it’s profile on official Nokia site, and we’ve even told you that Nokia N85 NAM version is being developed too.

Well, today, thanks to FCC,  we get another semi-official confirmation that Nokia N85 is about to hit the streets on both sides of the ocean.

Most of the Nokia N85 FCC documents are under short term confidentiality clause until mid November, so we can’t give you more pics or specs for it.

What we have confirmed, is that  there were at least two versions of Nokia N85 under FCC test.

One of them – 2.5G quadband GSM(850/900/1800/1900) version, another one full 3G HSDPA phone with 7 band (GSM850/900/1800/1900 and WCDMA Band I/II(1900)/VIII) and Wi-Fi connectivity. Both of them will come equipped with Bluetooth and FM transmitter.

Looking at the available GSM and WCDMA frequencies, both  Nokia N85 versions will work well all over the world, including Europe, Asia and North America.

As for the 2.5G Nokia N85, my guess is that this handset will be headed to the parts of the world (like Latin America, India, China, etc;) were 3G networks are not yet widely deployed. After all, we’ve seen that happening with high end phones  from other vendors quite a few times.

For now  known/presumed  Nokia N85 specs include:

  • 2.5G quadband and/or 3 band WCDMA connectivity (depending on version),
  • GPRS/EDGE and/or HSDPA data
  • 320×240 px QVGA Display
  • 5 megapixel camera with autofocus
  • QVGA display
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • FM Transmitter
  • A-GPS

And now we wait for more leaks and official Nokia N85 announcement.

    From FCC test report: “The only difference between RM-335 and RM-333 is that RM-335 has had all WCDMA and WLAN components removed“ and ”The test results of QURRM-333 are re-used for certification of the QURRM-335“.

    Well, yes.

    But with WCDMA components removed – what you get is a 2.5G phone.

    FCC documents clearly seem to be talking about about two different phones
    here:

    The EUT is a 4-band (GSM850/900/1800/1900) mobile phone with GPRS, EGPRS,
    Bluetooth
    and FM transmitter.

    The EUT is a 7-band (GSM850/900/1800/1900 and WCDMA Band I/II(1900)/VIII)
    mobile phone
    with GPRS, EGPRS, Bluetooth, WLAN and FM transmitter.

    And why would they remove 3G and WLAN components for a test of the same
    phone?
