My Dream Nokia #7 – Nokia N8-01 Touch and Play

December 10, 2010 7 comments

Dream Nokia #7 is sent in as a video by Iffan Morasilp from Thailand and is called the Nokia N8-01 Touch and Play.

  • 3.7″ Gorilla Glass display
  • 8MP Carl Zeiss
  • 1080p recording and playback
  • D-pad and gaming keys
  • HDMI
  • 4G
  • Dolby Digital Plus

It is N86 in design so I don’t know if they want a slide up keyboard. (UPDATE:intention is slim candybar)

This could also be our first Dream Nokia based on Symbian. Everything else thus far has been MeeGo (which btw, if you want Android/WP7/iOS that’s ok because it is just a “dream” :p)

Remind you of the recently leaked Nseries prototype?

Video: Hands on with the Leaked Nokia N9/N8-QWERTY variant/E7 (RM-626)

As promised by NegriElectronics here’s some more dishy news on what they call the Nokia N9.

Note, Eldar has said that this is an old proto. There may already have been changes to what he’s already got.

  • Name yet not confirmed. But this is NOT the N9 as that will have MeeGo. This is Symbian^3.
  • Slim looking QWERTY
  • HDMI
  • Screen looking bigger than 3.5″ or is that just me being hopeful?
  • Screen looks to be AMOLED
  • Rotate transition is slightly more acceptable. A very fast fade in fade out that does not fade to black (to make it look like it’s frozen)
  • Can’t be nHD – The small print of the text looks too sharp. WVGA at least? (not accounting for exact ratio here)
  • Solid sounding snap as the keyboard pops open. (I do love N97 form factor and that slide!). And it does flick and pop open (not a passive push)
  • Back end has a small bar (it doesnt run all the way along the length of the device like the N97.)
  • Check out the new volume switch/rocker thing next to the SIM port.




Recorded today. What's with that front-facing-looking LED flash?

It may just be the angle but it's looking pretty slim here. And the screen looks bigger than 3.5" though it may just be wishful thinking.

The curved thing in the corner is the tip of his thumb. The text is much too sharp to be 640x360

back lit 4-row QWERTY with a solid sounding snap as it slides open.

Back. Slightly different to N97 with only a partial hinge.

SIM card port and look at that new volume rocker switch. No single button, you slide the volume/zoom either way.


Nokia N9 Leaked Photos! Or is it actually the Nokia E7? QWERTY Slider, N8 design, Ridiculous screen clarity, 8MP.

For many moons now we have seen the leaked image above. Some called it the N9, others called it the N8, supposedly sporting 4″ screen with 8MP camera and 720p video recording amongst a host of other features.

For one thing it runs Symbian. NOT MeeGo. So how can it be Nseries if N8 is the last Symbian Nseries? N9 is the highest N and was said to be on MeeGo.

Well, it could be the E7. (Or an off chance a N8 variant like SE’s “Pro” qwerty versions) N8-01, N8-02 like the Cseries and Xseries with their offshoot)

[Update. Apparently with the new naming convention, the single digit does not mean only one physical device, e.g. N8, but a tier of devices. There will be at least 3 N8 variants. 16GB, 32GB and QWERTY variant with lesser camera. N8-01, N8-02 or whatever. I hope that is not their final designation is it sort of wrecks the simplicity of single digit N. That would have been ok if it were once a year.

I think it’s a good thing to have only talked about the 16GB version at the 370EUR price point before even confirming 32GB version]

We know Eldar Murtazin in on holidays with one of these. In his N8 review, he said he didn’t have a Nokia N8 with him, but an analogue with QWERTY slider. Another thing he said is that he won’t be the first to leak images. Now NegriElectronics has let the cat out of the proverbial bag, ah well, the gates of prepublish proto hell are opened!

To those wanting a Symbian^3 (or possibly a Symbian^4) handset with N97 like tilt QWERTY, this is for you! Check out that 4 row keyboard. Again it seems there is NO dedicated numbers button, however, the spacebar is in the middle!

Something worth noting is the apparent, “Ridiculous screen clarity”, well actually they said REDiculous, so unless that’s a pun on the red theme, this maybe the first Symbian Touch to have more than 640×360 pixels. Possibly at least WVGA or possibly somewhat higher, oh say to the realms of the “ridiculous” Retina Display?. They may be talking about clarity of the display tech. But they must have seen AMOLED before and it certainly won’t be having Samsung’s Super AMOLED.

Similar dark grey colouring to dark grey N8. More anodized aluminium? My fav colour. Man, if this had the 28mm wide angle and xenon flash I might have gone for this one.

I’m totally digging this unified design. This shape screams Nokia and the upcoming explosion (not death) of Symbian as it gradually takes over low tier handsets.

More details should appear soon. Who’s publish their “insights” first, NegriElectronics or dearest Eldar?
