Some more specs of the rumored Nokia N8 were uncovered. What is said to be Nokia's first 12MP cameraphone leaked through an XML on the company's website. An nHD screen and Symbian^3 are all but certain, though nothing about the key feature of the phone, its camera is mentioned.

So, the screen on the Nokia N8 will sport the nHD resolution (360 x 640), which so far is the only resolution used by Nokia for their touch-enabled Symbian phones. The screen has 24 bits per pixel so that would make it capable of displaying 16 million colors.

What's missing from the XML is whether it will be a capacitive or resistive. After the Nokia X6, it's quite likely that the Nokia N8 will have a capacitive screen to go with the more touch-friendly Symbian^3. By the looks of it, the N8 will be Nokia's first device with the new version of Symbian OS.

The XML covers the connectivity - GPRS, EDGE, 3G with HSDPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. GPS is not mentioned but chances that the Nokia N8 won't have GPS are slim to none. The CPU is a secret too - it's an ARM processor, but that's not saying anything.

Old rumors about the Nokia N8 had the 12MP camera shoot 720p video and play it over an HDMI port. The screen was put at 3.5", resistive with multi-touch capabilities (!) . That rumor also talks about DivX - and the mention of MPEG-4 seems to confirm that.

Again, there's a lot the XML doesn't say about the Nokia N8. What we're most eager to see confirmed is the 12MP camera.

Looks kind of thick! I hope it is not a slider type phone. If it is; it not competition for the touchscreen iPhone.
