The Nokia N86 8MP is a high-end smartphone announced on 17 February 2009[1] and released in May 2009. It runs on Symbian OS 9.3 (S60 3rd Edition FP2) and is part of the Nseries. It shares similar design features with the N97.

One of its main selling points is its Carl Zeiss photography features.[2] It was Nokia's first camera phone to have an 8 megapixel sensor, and features both multiple aperture settings and a mechanical shutter (uncommon features by the standards of camera phones), and a Carl Zeiss lens with a wide angle of view (28 mm equivalent). It also has auto focus and a dual LED flash (3rd generation dual-LEDs), and an AF assist light. Video capture resolution is 640 × 480 pixels (VGA) at 30 frames per second.[3]

The N86 8MP has a toughened glass front cover and metal detailing. It has a 2.6-inch AMOLED display, a fast 434 MHz processor, the "dual-slider" form factor and a 8 GB internal hard drive.[4][5] It also has the same kickback stand as the N85 so it's possible to use as a small standalone screen, and it's possible to configure the opening of the stand to launch applications such as the video player.[6] It also supports the N-Gage gaming platform. The N86 8MP is regarded as the spiritual successor of the N95 8GB, due to its advanced multimedia features in the same sliding form factor, and the commercial failure of the N96.[7] Some regard it a successor of the N82 due to its camera.[8]

Features[edit]

The N86 8MP is a 3.5G or 3.75G(3GPP)device with dual-band HSDPA support, quad-band GSM and Wi-Fi. It has an A-GPS receiver, which links into location-based services via Nokia Maps, and photographs can be automatically geo-tagged. There is also a built-in digital compass, and FM radio, and there is also a FM transmitter. It is rated to give 6 hours talktime, 25 hours music playback and 11 days on standby on a full charge.[3]

Digital TV[edit]

With optional DVB-H Nokia Mobile TV Receiver SU-33W it is possible to watch television on the screen of the phone.

Free navigation[edit]

Ovi Maps 3.03, with free navigation, was released on 17 March 2010 for the Nokia N86. The new version was available via the SW Update application and has a file size of 8.24 MB. The N86, E72, E55, E52, 6730, 6710 (S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2) and all of Nokia's Symbian^1 (S60 5th Edition) devices will get to experience beta-testing and free navigation.[9]

Firmware updates[edit]

[6 July 2009] The Nokia N86 8MP received a big firmware upgrade, to v11.043. That brought official Ovi Store compatibility (with Ovi web site shortcut and option to download the dedicated client), camera tweaks and the usual early firmware bug fixes and improvements.[10]

[30 September 2009] The Nokia N86 8MP received its v20 firmware upgrade a full week or so ahead of schedule. It was 8 MB large for an Over The Air (OTA) update.

Some significant changes were: Improved still image and video quality and Close-up focus, Face detection (indicated by a yellow square) and Red-eye removal were added, New focus point indication (shows where in the scene the camera is focusing).[11]

[11 January 2010] The Nokia N86 8MP got a minor update to v21 firmware. Version 21.006 replaced v20.115 and was a maintenance release, improving performance further and fixing a number of minor bugs.[12]

[15 April 2010] Version 30.009 firmware mainly features the latest Ovi Maps client and is now available via Nokia Software Update (142 MB) and Over The Air (5085 KB).

It includes the latest Ovi Maps 3.03 (with free navigation), the sharing of location via Facebook. RealPlayer interface is tweaked (no more d-pad problem while playing videos) and there are some usual minor fixes and improvements.[13]

[20 May 2010] It includes the latest Ovi Maps 3.04. The new version adds formal support for WiFi as a positioning method as part of an overhaul of the positioning functionality, plus significant performance improvements for search, zooming and map panning, a number of consumer-friendly UI tweaks and the addition of Qype information to the places database.[14]
