A couple of N86 niceties have popped up over at the S60 Blog, first one is the dynamic kickstand that was also covered by Ricky the other day and the new refreshed screensaver. The kickstand on the N86, unlike the one on the N96 can trigger an application launch when pulled out and this is something incredibly useful, a physical shortcut is always more than welcome. Have a look at this for the options.
Next up is the new futuristic looking screensaver that will include details like battery and missed call/SMS notifications. Another thing to note here is that the screensaver is in the landscape mode and not the usual portrait that we are accustomed to. I hope we have an option to set it to portrait as well.
The N86 despite being a refresh of the N85 is seriously tempting me, just because of the camera. On a recent trip abroad, I somehow didn’t find the 5MP camera of the N82 enough and saw myself picking up a digi cam on most occassions. This is in stark contrast to the situation one year back when I was pretty satisfied with the same device. I want to get rid of my digi cam, can the N86 8MP make than happen?
After the Nokia E75, it is now time of the Nokia N86 to be demoed in video. The N86 is Nokia’s latest imaging flagship that boasts of a 8MP camera and a 3rd generation dual LED flash. The USP of the camera is the presence of a wide-angle Carl Zeiss Tessar lens for panoramic pictures, shorter latencies and variable aperture for super sharp photos in challenging bright and low light conditions.
The N86 was officially announced today on the second day of the MWC. Full specifications here.
HANDS ON WITH THE NOKIA N86
INTERVIEW WITH THE DESIGNER
NOKIA N86 PROMO
Would you believe it! Nokia has leaked images of its yet unannounced Nokia N86. The fun never seems to end. Inside the press kit for the Mobile World Congress is a backgrounder on Nokia’s alliance with Carl Zeiss, the company behind the optics used in most Nokia camera phones. Present in this PDF file is a absolutely clear image of the Nokia N86, depicting its front as well as the back.
We had all expected to see the N86 announced earlier today, but for some reason Nokia chose to wait. Not one picture of the device had leaked till date before Nokia decided to let it rip themselves. The backgrounder confirms that the N86 will be a slider with a 8MP camera, Carl Zeiss optics and a Xenon dual-LED flash? Check this out. FAIL.
Here is a picture of the camera module itself. The styling on the device is also in line with new Nseries phones like the N97 and the N79. The phone isn’t touch based and from all indications doesn’t seem to have a large display either. An incredible amount of space has been wasted between the keys and the screen itself.

The Nokia Innovation Newsdesk has published another teaser from the N86 in the form of a low light picture from the streets of Barcelona.
