Nokia has officially announced the launch of the N85 in the UK on Monday.

The new handset will offer a 2.6-inch AM OLED (QVGA, 240 x 320 pixels) with up to 16 million colours, a 5-megapixel camera, and geotagging capabilities.

On the games front, the phone will sport dedicated N-Gage gaming keys and at least 10 pre-loaded demo titles, however consumers can choose one licensed game for free.

Running on the S60 3rd edition, the phone will offer HSDPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

Including GPS, the handset will offer Nokia Maps 2.0 on-board and come with an FM transmitter, with direct access to the Nokia Music Store, power for up to 28 hours of music playback plus 3.5mm headset connector and dedicated music keys for non-stop music enjoyment.

Like the N79, also announced today, the new phone includes a microSD card, this time 8GB, instead of memory built-in.

The new handset is expected to hit the UK next month.
