Nokia N8-00 Smartphone Spotted

Back in early February we mentioned details that had leaked about a Nokia N8 smartphone which was expected to have 720p capabilities and a 12 megapixel camera. A few pictures have now leaked with what we believe to be the Nokia N8-00 device.

The phone is believed to have a 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen, a 12 megapixel camera with the usual Carl Zeiss optics lens and a HDMI output to play the 720p content stored on it. Another post indicates the screen could be closer to 4 inches rather than 3.5 inches, but we have no official word on that.

The phone is believed to run the new Symbian ^3 OS and from what we see on the pictures it’s a touchscreen phone only with no slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Other features on the Nokia N8-00 include a front facing camera along with a proximity sensor to switch off the screen when making a call. An ambient light sensor is also included that indicates it has a fairly standard auto-adjusting screen to change to match the surrounding light.

It is expected that the phone will be launched in the summer this year. We should get the official details soon in preparation for launch to see what it’s really all about.

The Nokia N8 would be inline with what we reported on earlier in the CSeries post whereby Nokia are using four series of phones C, N, X and E followed by a number 1 – 9 with 9 representing the phone in the series with the most features. With it being numbered as 8 in the NSeries we believe it to be almost the top of the range of that category. The 00 numbers following the N8 could represent a second device known as the N8 could follow.
