Nokia will release the Nokia 8.3 5G in the Benelux for a suggested retail price starting at 579 euros. If you order the phone now, you will receive the Nokia Power Earbuds for free.
HMD Global announced the Nokia 8.3 in March. That is a phone in the upper-middle segment with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, making the phone suitable for the fast 5G network. The Nokia 8.3 is also Nokia’s first 5G phone that supports global roaming, allowing you to make calls all over the world at local or national rate. The phone will also star in the new James Bond movie and is now available via pre-order in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Screen and cameras
The Nokia 8.3 has a 6.81-inch PureDisplay screen with a round notch for the selfie camera. The edges around the screen are very thin, with the bottom edge slightly thicker because of the Nokia logo. The fingerprint scanner can be found on the side of the power button.
The PureDisplay uses a technology that will upscale Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) to High Dynamic Range (HDR), so that the screen should look even more beautiful. Nokia uses PureDisplay screens in many of its phones.
The round camera module on the back of the Nokia 8.3 houses four PureView cameras, a 64 MP main camera, a 12 MP wide-angle camera, a 2 MP depth camera and a 2 MP macro camera. So you can take standard photos, but also very wide photos, portrait photos and photos where you can bring small objects into focus.
Nokia also works with ZEISS on this phone. For example, portrait photos use the ZEISS bokeh effect. In addition, the camera can shoot video images in 4K quality and, just like the Sony Xperia 1 II, you can use Zeiss cinematographic effects to spice up your video. Unfortunately, it is not known whether these effects will also come to other Nokia phones. The camera also includes an Action Cam mode for action shots.
Nokia deliberately does not opt for a camera that can zoom in very far, because the company thinks that the camera set-up on the Nokia 8.3 will be used by many more people: “Online more and more video content is being shared and 5G fits in with that. The focus on videos and 5G makes video sharing even easier. ”
Performance and battery
The Nokia 8.3 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor. That is a chipset with an integrated 5G modem. Global roaming on this phone must ensure that the Nokia 8.3 can be used anywhere in the world in combination with a 5G connection. 5G is very important to Nokia. Depending on the rollout, the company will release many more phones with 5G support, including cheaper models.
There is also 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, but there is also a variant with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage. The phone will be released with Android 10 and will receive monthly security updates for three years. The phone comes with a 4500 mAh battery that supports fast charging.
