Nokia Corolla: Nokia’s 8MP Device Announcement Soon

BARCELONA, Spain – We’ve already seen a surprise from SE yesterday, but you can surely expect some more action as the Mobile World Congress 2009 officially kicks off today. One handset I’m really looking forward to is the 8MP cameraphone from Nokia.

[UPDATE – It is indeed the N86, complete details here]

Nokia's 8MP Device

The official Nseries blog had published a picture taken from a ‘Nokia Device’ and the resolution on that is approximately 8MP, so the fact the Nokia will be releasing a 8MP Nseries multimedia computer today is almost certain, what remains to be seen are the other specs. If you recall, Nokia’s product roadmap had been leaked a few months ago and from all indications it seems as if we’ll be seeing Corolla announced today. Will it be called the N86? I think so.

Nokia Corolla – The late to the party 8MP cameraphone:

  • A 3-inch non-touch display with a VGA resolutionI It packs a 2.6″ AMOLED screen
  • An 8 MP camera (a first for Nokia)
  • A “half QWERTY keyboard”
  • AGPS & Wi-Fi
  • HSDPA
  • 8GB of internal memory

Unlike a few prior occasions, Nokia has managed to keep things under wrap this time and I’m eager to see how the 8MP beast will do in terms of video capture as well. Make sure to visit this page later today for the latest.
