Nokia 8.3 5G is a Nokia-branded smartphone by HMD Global, running Android One. It is HMD’s first 5G phone, and was announced on March 19, 2020, alongside the Nokia 5.3, Nokia 1.3, and Nokia 5310 (2020). The Nokia 8.3 5G is claimed to be the first smartphone, which is compatible with all existing 5G bands.
The device is now available for purchase via Clove in the United Kingdom. However, Clove also offers global shipping via UPS and DHL, but be vary of import tax.
Note that since this is a “UK Model”, it will come supplied with an EU plug wall adaptor or EU Convert. Also, while the phone readily supports all 4G/LTE/5G UK and EU networks, this may not work for countries outside the area specified. The stock of the device is due September.
The variant featured on the site is a single SIM version, with 6GB RAM and 64GB expandable internal storage. Price tag runs about £460, or $545.31 for this configuration, but no mention of the higher 8GB/128GB model.
The Nokia 8.3 5G smartphones came with the upper mid-range Snapdragon 765G. It has a large 6.81-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display, with the impressive Pure Display technology. Of course, love it or hate it, the phone is part of Google’s Android One initiative.
But it’s the imaging that is quite interesting, and the one that I’m personally interested about. It has a 64MP main camera (which sensor is unknown for now) with an f/1.9 aperture lens, paired with a custom 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera and two 2MP camera for macro and depth sensing. On the front, it has a 24MP camera punched unto the display. All the camera sensors are equipped with a ZEISS lens.
What’s interesting about the phone is not its main camera, but the accessory 12MP ultra-wide-angle. While the lens is a dimmer f/2.2, Nokia Mobile says it is a “specialized lowlight ultra-wide” with a large 2.8um super pixels, and native 16:9 aspect ratio sensor. It is also advertised for its video capability (with HDR) with an exclusive ZEISS video cinematic effects.
