Nokia 8.3 5G Smartphone- Specification, Reviews and Price
The first Nokia phone to feature 5G
After the cancellation of this year’s Mobile World Congress, HMD Global – a Finnish smartphone manufacturer based in Finland has unveiled its first-ever 5G phone, Nokia 8.3 5G. In addition to Nokia 8.3 5G, Nokia 5.3 and Nokia 1.3 are also unveiled.
As the name implies it is the first 5G-capable Nokia device and it focused on its 5G elements of the smartphone.
This isn’t a top-end flagship device designed as a replacement for Nokia 9 though; however, this Nokia 8.3 5G is a slightly cheaper variant to the Nokia top flagship.
Nokia 8.3 5G Specs
Below we’ve put together key features, cost and specs about the latest Nokia Nokia 8.3 5G smartphone.
Release date and availability
Release date details for the Nokia 8.3 5G is still sketchy, and the company has only confirmed it’ll be releasing the phone in the second quarter (Q2) of the year.
The exact price is still sketchy but it may be available around €599 (about $650, £550, AU$1,100, N242,000) but HMD Global has yet to confirm the exact markets.
Design and display
The smartphone display is a 6.81-inch Full FHD+ PureDisplay screen with an aspect ratio of 20:9. Which means the phone’s screen will be longer than most handsets in an attempt to have a larger screen without it feeling too husky in the hand.
The Size is 171.90 x 78.56 x 8.99 m and the screen’s FHD+ resolution is 1080 x 2400, which is a pixel density of 386 pixels per inch. That likely means the picture won’t be as clear as what you’ll get on a QHD device, but it is still cool.
The Nokia 8.3 5G smartphone is embedded in pristine Nordic design and comes in Polar Night – down to the color that takes inspiration from the Northern Lights.
The fingerprint sensor of Nokia 8.3 5G smartphone is housed within the power button that sits on the side of the handset allowing you to turn the phone on and unlock it with one press for fast, secure access to your phone
Unrivalled speeds with 5G
Basically the selling point of this device which allows you to Play online games without distraction, stream films and share content using 5G. It is designed you get the best possible 5G signal from this phone and for that reason, there won’t be a 4G version of this phone on sale.
Operating system and processor
Nokia 8.3 5G is built on Android 10 powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 765G Modular Platform. You also enjoy software updates for two (2) years and three (3) years monthly security updates.
It comes with 6GB RAM with 64GB of storage or 8GB RAM with 128GB of storage. It also support microSD cards up to 400GB.
The rear camera
Main camera 64 MP f/1.89 + 12MP (ultra wide) with an aperture of f/2.2 + 2 MP (depth sensor) + 2 MP (macro).
Selfie shooter of 24 MP front-facing camera.
Quad camera setup with ZEISS cinematic effects specifically designed to capture smooth video. It uses a higher frame rate of 60fps to improve the footage for fast moving subjects. This smartphone is also capable of filming in 4K as well.
We don’t the length of duration but it comes with a battery type of 4500 mAh non-removable battery. That is quite enormous for a handset like this, but the extra power may not be unconnected with 5G usage.
At the bottom lies a USB-C charging port, but it’s unclear if the phone comes with fast-charging features like a lot of other top-end handsets.
If you have access to a 5G network and you need a phone that offers that feature, the Nokia 8.3 5G is worth the try.
