The megapixel (1152 by 864 pixel) camera will feature a high-quality lens, 4x digital zoom, and a self-timer.

Pictures can be turned into prints via a Bluetooth connection to a compatible printer or by using a printer kiosk available in Nokia branded retail locations or other photo shops.

Users can create short films of up to 10 minutes by shooting and editing the footage captured with their Nokia 7610. By using the Movie Director application on this smart phone, users can, for the first time, turn video clips into personal movies by adding special effects such as music, text, new colors, or moving objects. The application automatically combines multiple video clips into a single video vignette or optimizes the edited videos for MMS sending.

In addition to its multimedia capabilities, the 7610 will be able to send and receive email and SMS messages and browse the Web.

The tri-band model is planned to be available during the second quarter of 2004 in two variants, GSM 900/1800/1900 and GSM 850/1800/1900, which means it can be released in both the U.S. and Europe. It is expected to retail for approximately ?500.
