Nokia 8.3 5G

The most premium of these new handsets is the Nokia 8.3 5G. As the name alludes, this smartphone is the first 5G-capable Nokia device. Nokia claims it’s also the first global 5G smartphone with support for all global 5G networks. That means it has a higher number of 5G radio bands than any phone available now, although HMD has confirmed to Android Authority that it lacks support for mmWave 5G.

The Nokia 8.3 5G touts a 2,400 x 1,080 6.81-inch display, and it can scale SDR content to HDR. The chassis features an aluminum frame sandwiched by glass around the front and back. It comes with the Snapdragon 765G, 6 or 8GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of expandable storage, a 4,500mAh battery, and Android 10 (via Android One) under the hood.

Around back, it features a quad-camera sensor setup with a 64MP primary shooter, a 12MP super wide-angle lens, a macro lens, and a depth sensor. The Nokia 8.3 5G also features dual-SIM card support and a fingerprint sensor embedded in the power button. It will be available this Summer for a reasonable €599 (~$646).

Nokia 5.3, Nokia 1.3, and Nokia 5310

The other three new Nokia handsets may not be as premium as the 8.3 5G, but they still offer quite a bit of value for the price.

The Nokia 5.3 features the Snapdragon 665 SoC, a 1,600 x 720 6.55-inch display, up to 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of expandable storage, Android One, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. It also touts a 4,000mAh battery, a rear quad-camera setup, and the chassis looks quite similar to the Nokia 8.3 5G. It will be available this April for only €189 (~$204).

The lowest-end smartphone of the bunch — the Nokia 1.3 — comes with the low-end Snapdragon 215 processor, a 1,520 x 720 5.71-inch display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a 3,000mAh battery. It’s powered by Android Go, and it will be available to purchase this April for only €95 (~$102).

Nokia’s latest feature phone — the 5310 — rounds out the bottom of the lineup. This is a music-focused 2.5G handset, featuring front-facing speakers, a removable 1,200mAh battery, and either a white or black chassis. The Nokia 5310 will be available this March for only €39 (~$42).
