Nokia 8.3 5G will arrive with ideal pricing, four cameras and powerful mid-range chipset. The phone has 5G support, Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC and stock Android OS. Although it doesn’t have a Snapdragon 8xx family, you may rest assured that the device will be fast. It comes with Snapdragon X52 modem to provide 5G data connectivity. There are two RAM/storage options, 6GB/64GB and 8GB/128GB. The latter is ideal for people who are able to spend a little extra. The Nokia 8.3 5G supports up to 400GB of microSD card and users can theoretically get a whopping 528GB of total storage. With the stock Android 10 OS, there won’t be excessive bloatware that ruins experience. Nokia promises that there will be 3 years of security updates and 2 years of software upgrades.
On the front, you get a 6.8-inch PureDisplay screen with small punch hole and minimum bezels. The front-facing camera is a 24MP Zeiss and there is a PureView quad-camera arrangement on the back, also made by Zeiss. The primary rear facing camera has 64MP resolution with advanced Night Mode feature. The second camera is a 12Mp ultra-wide-angle lens with Action Cam Mode feature, 60fps of frame rate and 16:9 cinematic aspect ratio. The 2MP macro camera allows clearer photo results for close-up objects up to 3.6cm away. The last is a 2MP depth sensor for high quality bokeh shots. For low-light photography, the dual-tone LED flash should provide adequate illumination. The 4500mAh battery is paired with 18W fast charger. The fingerprint scanner is side-mounted, which should be more reliable than current in-screen versions. There are 3.5mm jack for wired earphone and a dedicated button for Google Assistant.
The phone should be available on summer this year. For the 6GB/64GB configuration, it will set you back €559. If you are willing to spend more, the 8GB/128GB version will be available for €649. To introduce the phone to the market, HMD Global has partnered with filmmaker of the upcoming James Bond film, No Time to Die, which is set to release in November 2020. HMD Mobile will also start a global marketing campaign, called The Only Gadget You Will Ever Need.
