Unboxing The Beautiful Nokia N86 8MP White

The unsung hero of the Nseries family, the Nokia N86 8MP has probably received way less publicity and marketing than the Nokia N97 or N97 Mini. Yet, despite the lack of coverage, the Nokia N86 8MP remains one of the best camera phones out there.

With an 8MP camera sensor and a lens provided by Carl Zeiss, Dual-LED flash, large aperture to capture the tiniest lights in dark environments, and true video zooming without pixelation, it’s hard to fault the N86 8MP at any photography skills. It also features WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G, TV-Out, 8GB of internal storage, and runs on the tried and true S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 software. For many people who have handled it, it’s the ultimate successor to the illustrious Nokia N95, pushing the boundaries of the Dual-Slider form factor with dedicated multimedia keys and a kick-stand, and proving that a lot can be packed in a small overall size.

Here, we unbox the white version of the Nokia N86 8MP, a true beauty considering the simple lines, silver ring, and the super clean white color. It also comes with a set of white in-ear headphones that are a nice departure from Nokia’s ear-torturing regular headphones. Enjoy.
