Nokia Announces 12 MegaPixeled N8

The Nokia announced today its latest smartphone N8 in an event. The first device to be powered by the brand new Symbian^3 platform, the Nokia N8 will launch with an ability to capture photos and video to rival dedicated point and shoot cameras.

The biggest feature on the Nokia N8 is its 12-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon flash. It features a substantially larger sensor than any ever used in any other Nokia device – even bigger than many found in dedicated cameras.

The Nokia N8 introduces the ability to record high definition (HD) videos and edit them with a smart built-in editing suite on the device.

There’s also a HDMI connector allowing you to hook the smartphone to your HD TV and share your media with friends and family in superb quality.

The Nokia N8 doubles as a portable entertainment centre. Watch HD quality video with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound and hook into a dedicated Web TV application for access to news and entertainment on the move.

It’s not just its 12-megapixel camera and HD video skills with HDMI support that set the Nokia N8 apart from the crowd. Packing more memory than most, the Nokia N8 has 16GB of built-in storage and is expandable up to 48GB with a micro SD card.

Joining the social messaging fold with the likes of the latest Eseries and Cseries devices, the N8 enters the fray with live Twitter and Facebook updates direct to your homescreen. Comment, read and send messages, update your status and share your location and photos with one touch.

Embracing location based services, the N8 is location-savvy and comes with free global Ovi Maps walk and drive navigation with support in more than 70 countries worldwide.

Powering the Nokia N8 is the all-new Symbian^3 platform. This latest incarnation introduces major new advances including multi-touch and support for gestures such as pinch-to-zoom.

Nokia says it will ship N8 in third quarter with estimated price tag of Rs.45,000 or above.

    Nokia N8 = The Perfect “iPhone KILLER” ♥

    • The same has been said for so many handsets, but iPhone murdered them all, One by One :)

  • yasir

    Although it is good and i love to use it , well it is quite expensive and person like me doing a high rated job in ptcl but at low wages cannot efford to purchase it .

    Can it be made available to the ptcl engineers like me on easy installments pl.

    It will be a great favour of the people to help the suppressed and discourage engineers in ptcl.

    Looking for the help of the Allah fearing people .
    At least our (PTCL) Arabs are not Allah fearing not our top management is Allah fearing .

    Pl people do help the engineering community of ptcl so that they can have such a state of the art mobile in thier hands .

    The PTCL engineers will be very happy e=with this act of sympathy and support and all os us shall be praying for ur Good life here after .

    Wawooo 12 mp nice shoot.

  • I don’t like its design, plus nokia is not good in making touch screen phones, while watching its features videos i have noticed that many software
    functions are copied from LG Arena, One should go for Sony Ericsson or Lg if you are going to spend 45000 :P

    • farrukh

      which functions ?

      se and lg perfered over nokia !!! goood

  • Farrukh Mahmood

    What a great model will be with attractive look…

  • Malik

    the ever best phone is the one and only with sensitive touch screen, high performance, fast internet browsing, wifi, massive 4.3″ screen, 5meg camra with outstanding picture quality, windows 6.5 (soon windows 7 upgradeble) and many more high quality functions just all in one the best….”HTC HD2″

  • Hmm nice but too expensive for that features.I would buy Samsungs latest touch series with a digital camera and it would cost me half of that price.
    Save some more money and buy iphone instead of this.

  • Saif

    N8 is nearly the “iPhone killer” but all smartphones always lacks the same thing, speed. By the looks of the UI video … I’m guessing it’s going to be slow like 5800 and 5530. I love the 12MP, HDMI Output WITH 5.1 support and HD Video recording.

    • farrukh

      5800 434 MHz processor
      5530 434 MHz processor
      N8 680 MHz processor

  • The Truth

    waste of time and money – how many of you have phones with pictures you never look at – 1 in a 1000 maybe – max size for mms is 384k and the codecs for 3GPP stream do not support this image quality. Sell nokia stock and buy LG, HTC, or Apple stock – nokia are dead in the water in their handset business

    • Saif

      I’m sure the image quality will be awesome and vids won’t be 3gpp … They’d be mp4

  • Mustafa

    Wastage of money!

  • Muhammad Ali

    Atlast nokia released 12mp camera. I think its price will be above 55,000 rupees.

  • web hosting pakistan

  • pkfunda

  • Haseeb

  • Ali-Sialkoti

    Nokia N8, seems to be very attractive phone… Wishing to have it as soon as it arrived in market

  • Shahzad Amin

    iPhone is best if u want speed.. iPhone kills the symbians due to its fast speed and quick response.

  • mobile phone price in pakistan

    Check when this mobile is going to become available in pakistan

  • pLZ someone tell the price.or any 1 selling.

    email at [email protected]

    Serious buyer

  • mus

    12mp is gud….but price must be 39000 or little less….otherwise Satio 12mp by Sony Ericsson is awesome and in any case satio is awesome…it’s all about pakistani market which prefer more Nokia for re-sale aswell..
    if you go for Touch screen than Apple is sexy and for applications, software updates Apple is kool worth 40+…
    anyways nokia will launch 12mp around 45000 but in Europe it’s 370Euro (Rs.39699/-)…
    so it’s upto you wait for it’s devaluation which will happen in couple of months after its launch(atleast 8000/- less than it’s original in just 2 months or less)
    i work for Nokia.
    cheers
