Users can get their hands on one from Nokia.com/phones and selected retailers for £499.99. If you wish to get your hands on a free 6-month trial of Google One, then purchase your Nokia 8.3 5G before or on the 21st of October. Consumers who buy the new smartphone by Nokia before this date will also get over £100 worth of accessories for free.
The Nokia 8.3 5G brings a range of incredible features with it. It allows the user to capture and edit on the go with faster upload speeds and an additional 100GB of online storage across Google Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos to store all the breathtaking pictures. This is all available in a single membership that can be shared with up to 5 additional people.
The all-new Nokia 8.3 will also be showcased in the upcoming 00 agent James Bond movie, No Time To Die, premiering April 2021. It comes packed with a powerful PureView quad cameras setup on the rear featuring ZEISS optics, allowing you to capture it all. The Nokia 8.3 5G will always be ready for what’s next, covering the highest number of 5G New Radio bands yet, ready for both standalone and non-standalone 5G network deployment combinations that operators around the globe are rolling out. As a result, the fast speeds of 5G are made accessible to more and more people, enabling them to stream and game wherever they are.
Debuting ZEISS Cinema capture and editor and bringing extraordinary low-light video recording and OZO audio recording, the Nokia 8.3 5G is the ideal smartphone for creators. Inspired by Finnish roots, the Nokia 8.3 5G comes in Polar Night – taking inspiration straight from the arctic sky.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer and Vice President of North America, HMD Global:
“Together with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.,® we were able to create a truly global 5G smartphone[iii] with the Nokia 8.3 5G. Being the first manufacturer to implement the Qualcomm® 765G 5G Modular Platform in a smartphone, we were able to condense more than 40 different RF components into one single integrated module that gives the Nokia 8.3 5G industry-leading 5G performance. By supporting the highest number of 5G New Radio bands, the Nokia 8.3 5G is a truly future-proof global 5G smartphone.
We’re also very excited to enable our fans to capture and share 5G worthy experiences. Whether it’s Action Cam mode videos or Hollywood-like shots with ZEISS Cinema effects, the powerful PureView quad camera with ZEISS Optics is there for you. Our innovative PureDisplay technology powered by the Pixelworks visual processor will ensure you get excellent dynamic range and amazing colour reproduction whether you’re streaming media or playing a game.”
