After lots of wait rumors and speculations, HMD and Advance Telecom just launched the Nokia 8.3 5G in Pakistan. It’s a premium mid-range phone that came out last year, headlined by 5G and Zeiss-made optics. 

We start with the phone’s internal hardware. Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G is at the heart of the Nokia 8.3 5G. It’s built on top of a 7nm manufacturing process and powered by the clean, stock Android One. 8GB of memory and 128GB of storage accompany the chip. Currently, the 8.3 is being shipped Android10, but it's upgradable to Android11. 

It’s all backed up by a 4500 mAh battery that fast charges over 18W. The ‘Adaptive Battery’ feature promises 2-day battery life — significant, given how resource-hungry 5G modems tend to be.

As for the Nokia 8.3 design, we are looking at the familiar Nokia look — a donut-like camera housing and Nokia’s branding stamped on the chin. The fingerprint scanner is part of the power button. And the shell is painted in a Nordic-style ‘Polar Night’ finish.

A dedicated button is used to summon the Google Assistant. And a 3.5mm headphone jack is available. The speakers, using Nokia’s own OZO Audio, create surround sound. Lastly, Nokia 8.3 supports NFC.

Out on the front of the new Nokia model 2021, the screen is a 1080P generic IPS LCD with a hole-punch cutout. Nokia 8.3 display measures 6.81” without any enhanced touch sampling, HDR, or screen refreshing features. Features that phones half its price, with an OLED screen, offer.

The quad-camera grid on the back uses a 64MP primary sensor and a wide f/1.9 lens. Ultra-wide shots are taken with an 8MP camera. And macro and portrait modes are powered by a pair of 2MP sensors. Nokia 8.3 5G can shoot 4K videos at 60fps, made steady with electronic image stabilization. The front camera is 24MP.

Nokia 8.3 starts from Rs. 115,000, and with each purchase, Advance Telecom is throwing in a free 128GB microSD card.
