fantastic n such a gr8 interview.thnx to Gsmarena n Damian Dinning cheers!!
Samsung's earlier 720P phones struggled trying to reach 25FPS which was not smooth for the most part. They have fixed it in the newer models now they record at 30FPS which is somewhat more stable & smoother but chose to capture in a less cinematic way by virtue of standard video based captured content at a higher scanning rate.
Nokia records 720P 24FPS at slower lower scanning rate. I hope that it can keep the stable 24/25FPS frame rate for smoothness. This is an excellent way to make you movie by panning more slowly to improve smoothness of scenes. Glad they are thinking of users intentions to create & capturing the film the way the director intended. A sense of classic cinematic touch & hollywood noir style. A real filmic look.
I'm sure Nokia are using 2nd gen SAMOLED. This means (again also to quote samsungs older phones which only used AMOLED 1st gen) which suffered from poor sunlight legibility. A extras layer has been irradicated from the screen to reduce reflectiveness & glare. I'm sure it will be clear as any new samsung phone has to offer.
Nearly 800MHz CPU is actually more than enough as daft as it seems. Especially if the phone has 256MB RAM to play with. It's based on how efficient the RAM, the new OS, & it's kernel will be with memory handling & processor interrup request cycles. It's that key point that will fully utilize the 800MHz processor properly. It's not all about having a super fast processor if none of the other factors involved are used effectivley.
My only gripe to Nokia is that they increase the screens resolution to 800 x 480. I'm sure the SAMOLED display can easily detail 800x480 with 16 million cols.
i think their is a dedicated dolby sound chip in their. So i hope the onboard speakers are as good as my Nokia 5800.
Great interview! It looks like Nokia is aiming for the top again with impressive overall features. There are few downsides though, it will be released probably in September and this will give plenty of time for competitors to respond especially Samsung. So we will see what happens.
It jaz proved that n8 is much popular than any other upcoming fones..
Besides, how many digital compacts can shoot video? at 720?
Aino, 19 May 2010why without lense cover?why?You should read the interview before asking this question, it`s clearly explained there.
Sorry, obviously a typo: 1/1.83" sensor in N8
Saurav, 19 May 2010Okay, so after reading that big A*S document, one small thing we need to remember, 'No Camera ... moreWe might have to rethink that thought. Most compact digital cameras have a sensor of around 1/2.0 to 1/2.5", some cheaper ones 1/3". This N8 has a sensor of 1/83". This is bigger than compact digitals.
Bottom line: this phone can replace a compact standalone digital camera. No, this phone cannot replace a DSLR, but that's not what we are talking about here is it? A DSLR is huge to carry around for every day shots.
why without lense cover?why?
What is AMOLED display? thanks
no LENSE COVER Its Very improbable from nokia!!!!!!!!!!!
nim, 19 May 2010Congratulation GSMarena. But you forgot to ask, how people are going to use OLED or Am OLED sc... moreRE OLED in daylight:
Based on my personal experience I have found it much easier to shoot video and images in bright light with the Nokia N8's new AM OLED display than previous OLED displays I have used. I would suggest you wait and try this for yourself if you can or wait for the reviews of the final HW/SW which I am sure will comment on this aspect. Recording is one aspect and of course a very important one, but consumption of content is also important and for this it's hard to beat OLED IMO. Which is one of the reasons why we love them, not forgetting the power consumption benefits too.
Congratulation GSMarena. But you forgot to ask, how people are going to use OLED or Am OLED screen outside, under the sun light. This screen becomes unusable, it is impossible to take a picture if sun going to shine to the screen from behind of photographer. It is impossible to see nearly anything on that screen just on bright day light. This type of LCD is customers abuse.
You need to tell customers the truth about pure sunlight legibility.
Congratulation GSMarena, very good interview, and nice touch with the "Wrap up" at the end there.Lots of things have been clarified in this interview, on of the most important : the lack of lens cover. I wasn`t seriously thinking of buying this phone until now, just have to wait to see how Symbian 3 does and of course the GSMarena review of the Nokia N8.
The (Scratch Resistant Cover Glass) is something that they could have done for ages and needs to be standard because it is bether than any movin lens cover, Remember less movin parts means a more Stable device
Saurav, 19 May 2010Okay, so after reading that big A*S document, one small thing we need to remember, 'No Camera ... moreAccording to the specs and the information provided so far, the camera of the N8 will have a sensor that is actually larger and optics better than in most dedicated compact digicams (of course not in comparison with DSLRs)
When you look at the images taken with the N8 camera you will immediately see the extreme ptoential this camera does have. It easily beats my Canon Powershot SX II, that cost around 400 Dollars back in the day.
math, 19 May 2010Uhhhh, because these are already known maybe? Check the specs and the press releases.i knw the specs dude...i just wanted that Dinning guy to say why the less ram and less clock speed....i know symbian takes less procssor speed...also i wanted to hear from him about the graphic accelerator etc
I can wait to get the Nokia N8 now... Im gonna do MP showdown when its released ... :) lol
nice interview,I love it,now i know why N8 don't have cover lens well is not problem at all,I will buy this baby:D,the most beautiful 12 MP phone,don't care about the OS symbian ^3,I think is already great OS for me :P~
Beniu, 19 May 2010What would you do: Wait for the iPhone 4G or buy Nokia N8? It all depends on what features matter to you the most. Camera features of the N8 is quite impressive, but there are users like me, who does not prioritize camera features on a phone. That being said, I am more excited of the iphone HD than the n8.
