A glimpse of the Nokia N8 at the Nokia Connections 2010

Our good friend Abe of Yugatech is in Singapore attending Nokia Connections 2010. He got a first-hand glimpse of the much-awaited Nokia N8.

Nokia N8

It is the first Nokia phone to every hit the 12mp-mark for the camera. I don’t know why they’re aiming for higher megapixels on such a small device but maybe there are still lots of people thinking that the more mp the better.

Anyhow, here are the specs of the Nokia N8:

  • ARM 11 680MHz processor
  • 3.5 inches AMOLED screen @ 360×640 pixels
  • 16 GB storage (expandable up to 32GB microsSD)
  • 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM
  • HSDPA 10.2Mbps, HSUPA 2Mbps
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP
  • 12MP autofocus camera w/ Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon flash
  • Symbian ^3 OS
  • 3D Graphics HW accelerator
  • FM Radio with RDS, FM transmitter
  • GPS w/ aGPS support

The Nokia N8 looks more like a portable media player than a phone and it’s a little on the thick side for a touch phone.  The processor is not that fast (most flagship phones now feature 1GHz proc) but the graphics accelerator is a huge advantage for playing movies and videos. There’s a lot of high expectation with the Symbian ^3 OS as well.

Do check out Yugatech for more photos and a video of the Nokia N8.
