Nokia launched the 8.3 5G smartphone earlier this year. But due to the pandemic, the product has faced production issues, forcing the brand to delay its availability. However, the company has given us the first real-life look at the phone, and what it promises for consumers.
HMD Global, which has the license to make Nokia-brand Android phones, has showcased the design imprint of the Nokia 8.3. The company’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas showed us the back panel of the phone. He tweeted the photo, which incidentally was shot using the Nokia 8.3 5G itself. He added, “I think the team did a great job with the Polar Night color & finish.” This statement likely hints the production issues have been taken care of. Which means the availability of 8.3 5G could be on the cards.

Nokia announced the launch of its first 5G smartphone Nokia 8.3 5G in March this year. The company had also announced its feature and price without giving us a clear timeline on its availability. And considering India is a big market for the brand, expect HMD Global to bring the 5G device to the country very soon.
