Nokia 5800i XM spotted

Nokia has revealed an update to its popular 5800 mobile phone, a central part of the growing XpressMusic range, which has been selling in excess of one million units per month for some time. To be known as the Nokia 5800i, the new design appears to feature an improved camera.


The improved handset includes a camera that extends the focal distance to 4.6mm, from 3.7mm. According to the GSM Arena website, there are two reasons for this. Firstly, the camera may now feature a narrower field of view or - and this is the preferred option - there's a larger sensor hiding behind the Carl Zeiss optics. This would solve the camera criticism seen by the initial release of the 5800.


Oddly, however, it appears that Nokia has removed the Wi-Fi facility for the 5800i. Why improve the camera and then delete Wi-Fi? Nokia has yet to officially announce the new iteraction and there is no release date of price mooted as yet.
