Nokia N85 Live Picture

Nokia N85, a new Nseries smartphone that has not been officially announced yet by Nokia, has been approved by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and it should, sometime in the future, be released in the US.

The N85 comes with support for quad-band GSM frequencies (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz) as well as tri-band HSDPA frequencies (850 / 1900 / 2100 MHz), hence there should be no problem for any of the North American GSM carriers to launch it.

Of course, before the handset's commercial launch, Nokia first has to officially present it, but there are no details on the date this will happen.

Nokia N85 was first spotted on the Web at the beginning of June, together with another new Nseries smartphone - the N79 - and the Nokia Tube, the first touchscreen phone to come from the Finnish company.

Aside from the network frequencies, the features of N85 are not fully known. However, it's said that they include the following: a 5 Megapixel camera with dual flash and lens cover, secondary camera for video calls, built-in GPS and Wi-Fi. Moreover, the new smartphone will almost surely run on a Symbian S60 3rd Edition platform, packing lots of multimedia-oriented functions.

When it comes to design, the N85 is not quite an attractive device, although it kind of resembles the upcoming and officially presented N96, as it sports a similar dual-sliding form factor. The N85 might actually be the more affordable version of N96, targeting users who want an advanced smartphone but can't afford to pay too much for it (the N96 will retail for around 550 Euros or 850 USD, which is far from being a price that everyone can pay for a mobile device).

Anyway, until Nokia comes out with full details regarding its new N85 handset, we can't know anything for sure.
