Nokia N86 8MP now official; ships in the second quarter for 375 Euros

Although only in the second day of MWC 2009, it did happen after all: Nokia has officially announced its very first 8 Megapixel handset, the Nokia N86.

Its full name is Nokia N86 8MP and, as we’ve already told you, it’s an Nseries smartphone that comes with a dual-slider design, resembling the already-available N85

Of course, the main attraction of N86 is its photo camera. Those 8 Megapixels rely on wide-angle Carl Zeiss Tessar lens that allow users to take panoramic pictures / sharp photos, even in low-light conditions.

The camera also has a dual-LED flash and a fast mechanical shutter, which should make images less blurry.

Furthermore, you can geotag photos and record video in VGA mode at 30 fps.

  • Quad bands GSM/EDGE connectivity (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
