What was about to be unveiled in Mobile World Congress earlier this year has now been unveiled by Nokia by themselves at Espoo not too long ago. That said, this time around – they have announced three new Smartphone and a Feature phone to keep their tradition of bringing back a classic to life. These smartphones are powered by the same AndroidOne OS which has been the essence of Nokia’s smartphones for a while now.
Nokia 8.3 5G
Following the trend, Nokia 8.3 5G is their answer to a future proofed 5G Enable smartphone and that said Nokia is playing safe with the specification as well. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G with either a 6GB or 8GB RAM and a storage configuration of 64GB or 128GB. Fret not, as it will have support for memory expansion via MicroSD card. Other than that, the display on the front is a 6.81” PureDisplay at FHD+ with support for HDR as well and yes, it’s a punchhole display of course with a 24MP camera powered by ZEISS optics. On the back, it boasts a Quad ZEISS Camera setup. A primary 64MP Sensor, followed by a 12MP Ultrawide module – which in my opinion is the only two exciting sensors about the camera. The other two sensor is a depth sensor and a macro camera – which personally, am not a huge fan of.
But gotta give it to Nokia, because the Single Polar Night color is possibly one gorgeous color. Also, this is the phone that will be featured in the upcoming 007: No Time to Die as well.
This is the brands mid-tier smartphone powering a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 with RAM options of 3GB, 4GB and 6GB and a storage configurated at just 64GB leaving more room for expansion with the help of a MicroSD Card. The camera on the back is a Quad setup as well – primary 13MP, Secondary 5MP Ultrawide, a Macro and a Depth sensor. On the front, it has a 8MP camera combined with a 6.55” HD+ Display with a notch up top.
This is one exciting smartphone because we tried the Nokia 1 and it was quite fun to use. Now, we have the upgraded version with a 5.71” IPS HD+ Screen powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 with 1GB RAM coupled with 16GB Internal Storage. On the front, it also has a 5MP sensor and on the back, it comes with a single 8MP sensor. Out of the three smartphones, this is the only one that will be running the AndroidGo version of Android 10 to keep it light and usable.
Nokia 5310 XpressMusic
Going back to a nostalgic time, the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic is brought to life. Unlike their previous attempt in bringing a classic to life, this one is a lot toned down than you think. On the front it has a QVGA Display and the big dial pad. On the back it has a camera with flash. As for the memory, it has a 16MB internal storage and an MicroSD slot to upgrade the memory to 32GB. Now what makes it a little sad is that it’s a dual band 2G phone. A lot of countries have turned off their 2G Networks, so it wont work at all. But if you happen to be in one of those countries where these bands are supported, you are in luck.
