This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 4 modules (64 MP Wide, 12 MP UltraWide, 2 MP Macro, 2 MP Depth sensor), and the front camera here turned out to be very high quality, which can make beautiful selfies. And Nokia 8.3 5G has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Important update: this model is updated to Android version 12.
Check the availability of the update version in your region on the manufacturer’s website.

Android version and market relevance

Nokia 8.3 5G is a novelty of 2020, which was officially announced in March the world′s electronics manufacturer — the company Nokia. In addition, this smartphone supports the work of two SIM cards, here you are, and please, the first reason for buying this model (or any other dual-smartphone from the catalog).

In 2020 this new model works out of the box running the Android operating system 10. But in the market of android-smartphones an important factor when buying a new device is the possibility of updating it to a fresh version of the OS. So Nokia 8.3 5G can be updated to version 12, therefore, we believe that it can be added to the candidates for purchase.

There is another feature of this model — it works in the fifth generation networks (5G). This means that you can watch online video in 4K or even 8K quality without loading delay, you can play online games without freezing the interface. All 5G smartphones save battery power and can run longer than on 3G\LTE networks.

Screen, body and battery

In the case Nokia 8.3 5G thickness 9 mm is placed battery for 4 500 mAh and a very large IPS LCD touchscreen with a diagonal 6.81″. As you can see in the official photos, the body has a neat little cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera. Thus, the manufacturer decided to increase the screen area without increasing the physical size of the smartphone body. The screen is very close to the edges of the case, which also improves the ergonomics of using the phone with one hand. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Nokia 8.3 5G. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 64 MP Wide + 12 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate perfectly for being one of the best cameras on the market.

The frontcamera is also in Nokia 8.3 5G. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 24 MP Wide. These characteristics you will definitely have enough to make your selfie photos in different lighting conditions. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.

Processor and Internal Memory

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 8-core on the chipset Snapdragon 765G . RAM 4 GB, but if you want, you can buy a version of this smartphone on 6 GB of RAM and, perhaps it will work faster.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 64 GB, but there are still options for 128 GB. You choose which version of the smartphone to buy, so it was comfortable to use it. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

If we scared you just in the context of the built-in memory, then do not worry, because Nokia 8.3 5G supports memory cards microSDXC. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for Nokia 8.3 5G: buy or not to buy?

$700 is the price for Nokia 8.3 5G at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with a very cool main camera that makes amazing photos and videos, and with a cool selfie camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? This model received a very good battery with increased capacity.

Nokia 8.3 5G will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.
