The new Nokia 8.3 V 5G is one of the best smartphones everyone wants to get. This is the successor of the Nokia 8.1 which was announced in 2018 by Nokia Mobile.
It comes in a modern body design bringing some tons of features together with specs.
As it was revealed by Geekbench, Nokia Mobile is preparing to launch the Nokia 8 V 5G UW with Snapdragon 765G, 6GB of RAM and Android 10.
The “V” seen in the name suggests that the device is headed to Verizon Wireless, considering when we saw the same pattern with the Nokia 2V and Nokia 3V respectively that Nokia Mobile made for that US operator.

My guess is that all the other specs should remain the same, but we also saw that there were some differences between the US models and international models (like the 3.1 Plus for Cricket), so one can never know.
Bringing affordable 5G devices and deeper cooperation with US operator was one of the four key areas Nokia Mobile will focus after the new round of founding. The US was never Nokia’s strong market, but with US-China tech war, maybe the tides change.

Many people will surely be excited by this innovation from HMD. Moving to the front, the Nokia 8.3 5G packs a PureDisplay technology however there is still some amount of bezel both on the top and bottom of the screen. HMD can do better than this.
