What you need to know

  • The Nokia 8.3 has made an appearance on Amazon Germany.
  • It's an indication that the phone's release date is closer than we may have thought.
  • Nokia announced the phone was coming in summer 2020 for €599.

The Nokia 8.3 is Nokia's first 5G phone for 2020, and despite an announcement in March, it has yet to make a debut. But there are indications that the launch date is coming closer and closer. Spotted by the folks over at Love Nokia, Amazon Germany now lists the Nokia 8.3 5G. It doesn't go so far as to offer a price or a release date, it's just an addition of the upcoming phone to Nokia's pre-existing slate.

Nevertheless, Nokia did promise the phone would be released in summer 2020, and we're either already in summer or three days away from it depending on what you subscribe to.

The Nokia 8.3 5G is shipping with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765, a processor that's proving to be popular with smartphone OEMs who want to ship decently powerful phones without paying the Snapdragon 865 tax. Camera-wise, it's coming with a 64-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera with large 1.4-micron pixels, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro camera to wrap it up. Shipping with Android One as all Nokia phones do, you'll find a bloat-free version of Android 10 on this.

When it launches, it'll be priced at €599 with Clove in the UK already listing at £499.
