An obvious upgrade to the Nokia N85, the N86 has a better flash unit of up to 3.5 meters on top of the 8MP Carl Zeiss optics. It also has a variable aperture F2.4/3.2/F4.8.
The unit will be released before the end of the 2nd quarter of 2009 with a suggested retail price of 375 euros or just under Php23,000.
