The Nokia 8.3 5G and a couple of affordable handsets are official and coming to the US


After months of leaks and teasers, the Nokia 8.3 5G is finally official and coming to the US and Europe sporting the ever-popular Snapdragon 765G processor, quadruple rear cameras, 5G, and Android 10. Priced at $699 in the States and €649 in Europe for the 8GB/128GB variant, the Nokia 8.3 5G will launch in 6GB/64GB guise in the UK for £499. If that sounds a tad on the expensive side, the more affordable Nokia 2.4 and 3.4 have also been announced, and cost $139 and $179, respectively.

The Nokia 8.3 5G comes in unlocked form and sports a big 6.81-inch FHD+ display, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB storage in the US and Europe with the UK making do with the cheaper 6GB/64GB variant. Powered by the Snapdragon 765G processor, the phone boasts a 64MP main rear camera that is accompanied by a 12MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP Macro lens. The 24MP selfie camera is housed in a punch-hole on the top left corner of the display. While the Nokia 8.3 5G does support 5G, in the US you’ll only be able to get 5G on T-Mobile.
