Vodafone has announced that they will start shipping the Nokia N8 smartphone in August 2010.

The handset features a  3.5 inches AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 360 x 640 pixels. It has 256MB RAM, 512 MB ROM, 16GB internal memory and a microSD card slot for up to 32GB memory card.

The camera features a 12 megapixel lens with Carl Zeiss optics and a maximum resolution of 4000×3000 pixels. It also has Xenon flash and autofocus capability. In video mode, it can record at 720p with 25Fps.


Nokia N8 Replica Already on the Market, in China


The Nokia N8 hasn’t even been launched yet, and the Chinese have already launched a 1:1 replica. These guys sure work fast.

But, like most Shanzhai, the Chinese N8 doesn’t come close to the original, as far as technical specifications are concerned. It has a 3.2 touchscreen with a 240×400 inch resolution, WAP, GPRS, FM radio, Bluetooth, webcam and Java support. Battery life ranges between 3 and 5 hours of talk time and 8 to 12 days, in stand-by mode.

But the N8 replica has no WIFI, 3G, Symbian OS, and we can’t even mention the 12 megapixel Carl Zeiss sensor. The 75 euro price tag seems pretty reasonable, and accessories are even cheaper: 3 euro for a second battery, 2 euro for a 4 Gb SD card, and 6 euro for a Bluetooth headset. Still, judging by its features, I’m not sure it’s worth it.

Check out more photos of the N8 replica, after the break.
