8MP Nokia N86 unofficially unveiled

As you probably already know, Nokia has just announced four new smartphones at MWC 2009: Nokia E75, Nokia E55, Nokia 6710 Navigator and Nokia 6720 classic.

So, no sign of that 8MP handset which was rumored to be announced in Barcelona. Still, the handset does exist, and it’s called Nokia N86 – yup, it’s an Nseries, as expected. 

Amidst the data sheets related to Nokia’s aforementioned new smartphones, there’s also a PDF that talks about the now-famous collaboration between the Finnish company and Carl Zeiss.

And – surprise – the N86 can be seen there.

Details about it are scarce, but we can see that it has an 8 Megapixel camera with autofocus, Xenon flash and, obviously, Carl Zeiss lens.

The design of N86 seems to be drawing its roots from both the N97 and the N85, so it’s a handset that looks fairly good.



Its display doesn’t seem to be a touchscreen one, which would mean that the phone is a slider with an alphanumeric keypad (or perhaps a semi-QWERTY one, like the one of E55 – who knows?).

For the moment, there’s no word on when Nokia will fully unveil the N86.

Although I doubt it, we might spot it live at MWC; in this case, we’ll surely bring more info about it, plus pictures. But I guess Nokia would’ve already presented the handset if a presentation was due, so it’s likely that we’ll have to wait a bit more until we see the N86 in reality. 

Update:  Surprisingly, Nokia N86 was showcased in Singapore, not in Barcelona :)
