Nokia has announced its first 5G enabled smartphone, the Nokia 8.3 5G, bringing a high-end priced device, packed full of some pretty impressive features, right to the South African market.
Coming with a powerful PureView quad camera with Zeiss optics, the Nokia 8.3 5G debuts Zeiss Cinema capture and editor, and brings low-light video recording and OZO audio recording.
Under the hood
The Nokia 8.3 5G is also first device to feature the Qualcomm 765G 5G Modular Platform, as the company was 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.
Specs-wise, the 8.3 brings the largest PureDisplay screen on a Nokia smartphone yet. The 6.81-inch edge-to-edge screen comes with PureDisplay technology powered by the Pixelworks visual processor, complemented by the Snapdragon 765G Modular Platform AI-enhanced entertainment capabilities. The Nokia 8.3 5G also comes equipped with the 5th generation Qualcomm AI Engine to help deliver intuitive AI experiences. This technology provides immersive HDR quality and amazing colour reproduction for all your streaming media, photos, videos or games, even when the action is only available in standard dynamic range (SDR). This is done by dynamically upscaling the colour depth and detail by a factor of 64.
Coming with a PureView 64MP quad camera with Zeiss Optics, the Nokia 8.3 also includes the Zeiss Cinema capture and editor app to shoot 4K 21:9 cinematic video, and add professional colour grading, anamorphic flares, and other effects to your footage for an effortlessly epic look.
Plus, you can master your night shots with the super pixel powered wide-angle sensor in Night video mode. The Nokia 8.3 5G’s large super pixels in Night video mode help reveal more details and a brighter image with less noise.
Fingerprint scanner and upgrades
The Nokia 8.3 5G combines the power button and fingerprint sensor for a smoother and more seamless way to access your phone. Plus, your Nokia 8.3 5G will just keep getting better, coming with a guaranteed two years of OS upgrades and three years of monthly security updates, along with a suite of Google apps that users love.
