Nokia N86 showcased after all; specs revealed

Earlier today, Nokia N86 was leaked by the Finnish company itself, and I was wondering if the smartphone (the very first Nokia to come with an 8 Megapixel camera) would be showcased at MWC 2009.

Well, no, it looks like it won’t be.

However, Nokia did present the handset – not in Barcelona, but in Singapore, during an event called Showcase Nokia 2009. And, yes, it’s all confirmed: the N86 does have an 8MP camera with autofocus and Carl Zeiss lens (aperture f/2.4).

Even more, the camera comes with a 3rd generation dual-LED flash, a mechanical shutter and the ability to record VGA videos at 30 fps.
