HMD Global has finally launched its first 5G smartphone through an online event. Though it was announced 6 months back, Nokia 8.3 5G launch got delayed.
The waiting is over. Starting today, the US, UK and European consumers can purchase the handset through eCommerce portal Amazon and Best Buy. The HMD Global has not mentioned its availability in the Indian market but one can expect it soon.
Nokia 8.3 5G Specifications:
The Nokia 8.3 5G sports a 6.81-inch LCD display with 2400 x 1080 resolution and 20:9 aspect ratio. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset (7 nm), Adreno 620 GPU and 8GB RAM, this 5G-capable smartphone has an inbuilt 128GB storage. It can be further expandable up to 512GB through microSD card.
Nokia 8.3 5G Camera Setup:
On the optics front, it sports a quad-camera-setup on the back. A 64mp Zeiss sensor is the primary shooter, 12mp ultra-wide lens, a 2mp depth sensor and 2mp macro lens make it competent enough to shoot 4K videos@30fps and 1080p@30fps.
A 24mp selfie shooter is an addition.
As expected, both the power button and the fingerprint sensor are combined for smoother access.
Backed by a 4,500mAh battery and 18W fast charging, Nokia 8.3 5G is quite dependable for 2 days. It boots Android out of the box. Being an Android One product, it will surely get monthly security updates for 3 years and Android 11 and Android 12 update for sure.
On the connectivity side, this carries a dual-SIM slot, a headphone jack and an NFC chip. The parent company HMD Global has mentioned that this 5G smartphone sports more 5G antennas than any other.
This will ultimately result in greater support to both standalone and non-standalone networks.
Nokia 8.3 5G Availability:
Clad in a single Polar Night colour, the Nokia’s only 5G handset will be available globally. If you are a movie fanatic like me, then don’t miss it in the upcoming Bond film No Time to Die.
As a promotional offer, one gets a 6-month 100GB Google One membership trial ($1.99/month value) for free with the purchase of Nokia 8.3 5G handset.
Regarding the price, as of now, only its European price is mentioned as 599 Euros. Surely, one can consider it as an average global price. If one converts it into Indian currency, Nokia 8.3 5G could easily retail at ₹51,599.
