The Nokia N93 (type RM-55, codenamed Gundam) is a high-end Symbian smartphone announced in April 2006 and released in July of the same year. It is part of the Nseries, a series of multimedia oriented smartphones.

Its main feature is the camcorder like design, with a twistable screen and a 3.2 megapixel camera that can shoot DVD-quality video with stereo audio. Videos could be edited on the phone or imported into the bundled Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0 PC program for further editing.[1]

The N93 is also Nokia's first phone, or multimedia computer, with OpenGL ES 1.1 support, providing 3D hardware acceleration to applications and games.[2]

Two color options were available - silver and black.[3]
