The aluminium designed Nokia N8 introduces a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss* optics and Xenon flash, HD-quality video recording, film editing software and Dolby Digital Plus**.
Sound: Dolby Digital
Nokia N8 is the first device to sport a full implementation of Dolby Digital Plus. This is not just a stripped down version of what you'll find in your living room, this is the real deal. This means the Nokia N8, along with delivering HD quality video, offers full 5.1 surround sound. Of course, it is unlikely the Nokia N8 will take the place of disc spinner at home, but hit the road and together with an HDMI cable, anyone can be watching great movies anywhere he finds himself in front of a TV.
The Nokia N8 can power USB speakers, meaning you can listen to music at a great quality and sound level whilst on-the-go. Thanks to Nokia's USB on-the-go technology. Many people probably didn't think it was possible, however the video below proves otherwise - the Nokia N8 is powering and using the USB speakers without external power.
Damian Dinning touched on this in his post on the Nokia N8's camera. You'll find two microphones on the Nokia N8: one on the rear of the device and one on its face. Both microphones will record when you're capturing video. The result? Audio that's both rich and clear as day, in video voice-overs, video recording and calls.
Naturally, the Nokia N8 comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Plug in any pair of buds or cans to enjoy your tunes. There is also a micro USB connector for an additional microphone or specialist audio equipment.
