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.
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
