HMD Global announced its first Nokia 5G capable device tagged as the Nokia 8.3 5G. It is based actively on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G platform with Nokia assembling a high-end device that ticks all the required boxes for a good device that is capable of performing all required tasks. The large display carries a squad of sensors with a quad-camera module system on the back. Interestingly, the Nokia 8.3 5G will support a lot more 5G carriers than any other device on the market.
The device also boasts of one of the first devices to be released on the 765 platforms instead of the traditional 865 that will be completely built on a fully capable 5G modem. The ability of the modem to support a whole lot of carriers than any other device gives Nokia the ability to tag their device as a truly global 5G carrier device.
The 765 Snapdragon is not Qualcomm’s flagship chipset, however, it is still ferociously capable. The SoC incorporates two Cortex-A76 based CPU cores for high-intensity workloads and further integrates six Cortex-A55 cores for low-intensity workloads. The GPU is made up of an Adreno 620 computation module and packs 6 gigs or 8 gigs of memory along with 64 GB or 128 GB NAND flash memory.
The 8.35G will also come with a 6.82-inch IPS LCD with PureDisplay enhancements which features deeper blacks and lesser reflections. Oddly enough, it misses out on DCI-P3 support or HDR10 support as HMD has chosen to remain quite mum on those facts. The display, however, is a 2400*1080 resolution with a 386 PPI.
The quad-camera setup has a 64 MP main shooter, a 12 MP ultrawide sensor, a 2 MP macro camera and a 2 MP depth sensor. For selfies, Nokia provides a punch-hole 24 MP camera with an Ozo surround audio microphone array. With all the usual ports and the latest in-depth sensors, the device looks to be a bit mouthwatering especially with a price point of £599and £649.
