Unboxing the Nokia 8.3 5G, which is finally on sale from October 8th for a price of £499 in the UK. Here’s a full tour of the quad-lens camera and features, plus a look at performance, specs and that stock Android UI. My full review will follow shortly as I’ve already been using the Nokia 8.3 5G as my full-time phone for a week.
Now, several mid-range 5G smartphones have launched in 2020 for £300-400, including the OnePlus Nord and Realme X50 5G. So is this Bond Phone as tempting as it once was, vs those other options?
Well, it should be just as good at gaming on the likes of PubG and Call of Duty Mobile, with that same 765G Snapdragon chipset. You’ve got a gorgeous 6.8-inch HDR screen (still bright and punchy, although not an OLED). And the camera features will be ideal for pro photographers and anyone who wants to shoot cinematic style video. In fact, this could be one of the best cameraphone releases of 2020 alongside the Xperia 1 ii. Stay tuned for a full review of the optics to see how it fares.
You also get a 4500mAh battery crammed inside the Nokia 8.3, plus 64/128GB of storage and microSD expansion.
So are you tempted by this James Bond blower? Final verdict coming soon and you can pre-order here:
