The N8 is a powerful combination of internet, video, photos and music with Symbian^3 platform. Sports a 3.5″ OLED capacitive touch screen supporting pinch to zoom on browser, photos and email. The screen resolution reads as 360 x 640 with a 24bit colour depth.
Inorder to create a robust, one-piece device that feels good in the hand, the BL-4D 3.7V 1200mAh battery has been integrated to the device, which cannot be replaced by the user. The casing is made out of Anodized aluminium. The N8 will come in three colours in the begining – silver white, dark grey and green. The device is up to 80 % recyclable and Free of PVC, nickel free on the product surface.
Combination of 3D graphics hardware accelerator along with the main ARM-11 single processor with a clock rate of 680MHz is great way to speed up things.
The N8’s user memory is 145MB and has 256MB RAM. And it also has a 512MB NAND memory along with a built-in 16GB mass memory. Externally you can go up to 32GB with hot swapable MicroSD card.

What I am mainly interested in is it’s 12 megapixel camera with 28mm wide-angle Carl Zeiss lens and Xenon flash. It also has Face recognition software, fullscreen 16:9 viewfinder with easy-to-use touchscreen parameters, the camera resolution is 4000 x 3000.

There is no camera cover, but the materials are highly scratch resistant.
