We played the Nokia 9 PureView in 2019 – and for the most, we liked the camera for its high points, although it was not without optic limitations. The smartphone was never really widely released to the masses, and its high price tag did not do it any justice because a lower price tag is always an incentive.
The Nokia 8.3 5G looks forward to correcting that, or so HDM Global hopes.
It is being sold as a flagship killer of 2020 – but we have seen the moniker before from the likes on OnePlus. It has a great display, ZEISS branded cameras and 5G support that accommodates more bands than the competition.
Nokia says that 8.3 5G is equipped with all that tech to future proof it – and its lower sticker price should, at least when it hits store shelves, be appealing to potential buyers.
So what do we have here? Well, it is equipped with a 6.81” Puredisplay at FullHD+ with HDR and a 24 MP selfie cam punched in the display. At the rear is a 64 MP primary sensor and a 12 MP ultrawide snapper. There are also depth and macro sensors.
Running the show is an S765G chip, paired with 6/8 GB RAM and 64/128 GB of internal memory.
Powering the handheld is a 4500 mAh juicer that tops up at 18W.
