Nokia 8.3 5G begins global sales, features Snapdragon 765G

The company had a set of smartphones to release during the first two quarters of 2020, but due to the disruption in the manufacture and low demand, the company made a decision to postpone these smartphones. The company is also launching two new budget smartphones - the Nokia 2.4 and Nokia 3.4. More importantly, the already revealed Nokia 8.3 5G is ready to sail to worldwide waters as the company's first 5G handset.

The Nokia 2.4 sports a dual-camera setup at the back, which offers features like Night mode and Portrait Editor. The smartphone runs MediaTek's Helio P22 chipset paired with up to 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

It's available in 2GB RAM/32GB storage or 3GB/64GB configurations, with both models supporting microSD cards up to 512GB. "It packs a 6.5" LCD with 720+ resolution (20:9). The cutout serves as a house for a rather modest 5MP selfie snapper. As for the rear cameras, Nokia 2.4 includes a 13MP (f/2.2) primary sensor and a 2MP depth sensor - the same as its predecessor. We also have a fingerprint scanner on the back. And with a whopping 4,500 mAh battery, I'd expect the Nokia 2.4 to have some seriously good battery life too. It also lacks dual-band Wi-Fi, and features a less common micro USB charging port. The shocking fact is that while Nokia couldn't fit a USB C port here, the phone has NFC support. You also have a 3.5mm audio jack, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, and LTE support to round up the connectivity options. There's stiff competition in the market, these days - especially in the low end of the market - but the buds have been getting a pretty positive reaction for their price point, thanks to a comfortable design and a ridiculous 150 hours of battery courtesy of their massive charging case.

The Nokia 2.4 will be available globally starting later this month for 119 Euros (about $139 US).

Right off the bat, you can see that Nokia 3.4 is a modern 2020 smartphone. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 460 processor. It's a very interesting CPU that brings 4x Cortex-A73 cores plus 4 x Cortex-A53 cores to the table.

Next up, we have the Nokia 3.4 which is the company's budget offering this year alongside the likes of Nokia 5.3.

Like most HMD/Nokia phones, all three of these new devices should receive major OS updates for at least two years, and monthly security updates for three years.

Yes, ladies and gents, the Nokia 3.4 has a hole punch instead of a notch, squeezing a slightly bigger 6.39-inch screen into essentially the same body as the 6.26-inch Nokia 3.2. The display is once again limited to 720p and has a 19.5:9 aspect. The rear camera stack features a 13MP primary lens, a 5MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 2MP depth sensor. You will also find a fingerprint sensor below the camera module and a dedicated Google Assistant key on the left edge. As before, the phone has a 3.5 mm headphone jack and FM radio.
