Nokia 8.3, like many other mid-range mid-range devices, came with the popular Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, which, while its A76 processor cores do not look very modern with Arm’s Cortex-A78 cores, but with a Snapdragon modem. The X52, like the flagship category, supports both 5G network options, sub-6GHz and mmWave. This support, of course, is potential, and according to the manufacturers, only the sub-6GHz option can be activated with a longer range and, of course, a lower speed, and mmWave can be ignored despite the higher speed (and, of course, lower range); This is exactly what happened with the Nokia 8.3, where despite the Snapdragon 765G, it was only active on the fifth-generation sub-6GHz network, and in a market like the United States (where mmWave 5G is becoming the ubiquitous standard, especially with the introduction of the iPhone 12 series. ), Probably in the eyes of buyers.
Accordingly, HMD has released another version of this phone called Nokia 8 V 5G UW, which, except for the activation of mmWave, apparently has no special difference with the normal Nokia 8.3 and is even available at the same price as before. Nokia is heading to US-based Verizon to launch the phone, and is reportedly experiencing its first flagship handset experience.
The Nokia 8 V 5G UW is thus no different in appearance from the new gray (compared to the blue in the Nokia 8.3), and the same large screen with relatively small margins and in-screen notches are present here as well. . Dimensions: 8.9 × 78.5 × 171.9 mm The phone is no different than before and weighs 226 grams, 1 gram less than before. The back of the phone is also covered with an unannounced version of gorilla glass, but the perimeter frame material is apparently plastic, despite the deceptive title “Resistant Fiber Polymer”. Finally, the dedicated Google Assistant button on the left side of the phone completes the similarities between the new Nokia 8 and its predecessor.
The screen of the device is the same as the previous 6.81-inch model with IPS LCD technology, which is still called PureDisplay, and its full HD resolution of 20: 9 (or 1080 x 2400 pixels) is no different from the Nokia 8.3. There are relatively small margins at the sides and top of this screen, but at the bottom there is a thicker border, from which the Nokia logo has apparently been removed. The punch hole inside the screen displays the location of the device’s 24-megapixel selfie camera, which lacks autofocus as before.
On the back of the phone we find the same set of previous cameras, including a 64-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultraviolet camera, and two 2-megapixel units, only one of which is capable of shooting macro shots and the other a 2-megapixel depth-of-field sensor. The phrase ZEISS in the middle of the cameras in this section clearly indicates the presence of quality optics of this manufacturer, which in addition to the main camera has also been used for the selfie camera. The fingerprint sensor has no place on the back of the phone and is located on the right side of the power button as before.
The Snapdragon 765G processing chipset, as mentioned, was unchanged from the past, but this time it supports 5G mmWave network. Another difference in this part is the RAM and internal memory of the device, which unlike Nokia 8.3, which was offered in two versions, 6GB / 64GB and 8GB / 128GB, is now only available in a version with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory. The microSD memory slot in this model, of course, apparently has not changed.
4,500mAh battery with 18-watt charger (9V and 2Am), 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port, ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, NFC connection and GPS / GLONASS / BeiDou routers Other duplicate options Are considered.
The Nokia 8 V 5G UW is priced at $ 699 for Verizon USA, which, while still not an unusual figure for a 5G phone, is an understatement considering things like the LCD screen, mid-range processor, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of memory. Wireless charging and the lack of IP resistance standards seem a bit overly optimistic in the presence of tough competitors like the Pixel 5, Galaxy S20 FE and perhaps most importantly the iPhone 12 Mini.
