Nokia 8.3 5G Unveiled, HMD Readies Even More Affordable Smartphones

HMD Global just introduced their first 5G smartphone, the Nokia 8.3 5G flagship.

As is usually the case with Nokia phones, the announcement of the Nokia 8.3 5G is also accompanied by a range of other cheaper devices.

In this case, today also marks the debut of the Nokia 5.3, the Nokia 1.3, and the Nokia 5310. Yes, that classic is back but first things first!

Let’s see what the Nokia 8.3 5G has to offer and why HMD took so long to join other vendors in launching a 5G device.

Their answer is simple: this is the “first truly global 5G smartphone”, which is explained by the fact that the device supports a wider range of 5G bands compared to the competition.

The other main feature of the Nokia 8.3 5G is the camera setup.

The quad-camera on the back consists of a 64 MP main sensor, a 12 MP ultrawide sensor, a 2 MP macro camera and a 2 MP depth camera.

This setup means you can film in 4K and in 21:9, with effects like lens flare to give off the looks of a cinematic anamorphic lens.

The Nokia 8.3 5G also shoots in video in log format, which makes it a very appealing option for videographers, as it makes it easy to color correct and do other editing feats.

On the front, the Nokia 8.3 5G has a 24 MP selfie camera.

The 6.81-inch display is said to adjust to ambient lighting conditions and can also upscale SDR footage to HDR.

Under the hood, the Nokia 8.3 5G unsurprisingly relies on a midrange chipset – the Snapdragon 765G paired with a 4,500 mAh battery.

The Nokia 8.3 5G will launch this summer and will retail for €599 for the 6 GB RAM + 64 GB model or €649 for the 8 GB RAM + 128 GB model.

For those looking for a cheaper Nokia device, the Nokia 5.3 might be the one.

It’s the followup to the Nokia 5.1 from 2018 and will cost €189.

For that, you get a phone with a 6.55-inch display with a small notch for the 8 MP selfie camera.

On the back, the Nokia 5.3 has a quad camera with a 13 MP sensor, a 5 MP ultrawide sensor, a 2 MP macro sensor and a 2 MP depth sensor.

Notable here is the 4,000 mAh battery, which means you should be able to get 2 days on a charge.

Even cheaper is the Nokia 1.3, retailing for  €95 (around $100).

This one is an Android Go budget smartphone with a single 8 MP camera that uses Google’s Camera Go app, something that will compensate the budget hardware with Google’s advanced photo algorithms.

The Nokia 1.3 has a 3.5 mm but that’s the one good news in terms of ports – the charging is done with Micro USB, not USB-C, something we hoped was a thing of the past.

For around $100, it’s hard to fault it too much though.

And lastly, the star of HMD Global’s 2020 line-up, at least for older users.

The company is launching an update for the candybar Nokia 5310! Read more about it here.
