HMD Global launches the Nokia 8.3 5G, Nokia 3.4, Nokia 2.4, and a bunch of new accessories

HMD Global on Tuesday introduced two new affordable smartphones, including the Nokia 2.4 and the Nokia 3.4, while finally launching the Nokia 8.3 5G that was previously announced back in March. In addition, the company has announced a host of new accessories, including a pair of truly wireless earbuds called the Nokia Power EarBuds.

Nokia 8.3 5G

The Nokia 8.3 5G, which was announced earlier this year, is the headliner of today’s announcement. Equipped with a 6.81-inch FHD+ LCD with up to 120Hz refresh rate support, a quad-camera setup comprised of a 64MP main image sensor, and the Snapdragon 765G processor, the Nokia 8.3 5G is billed as “future-proof” made for content creators and gamers. To take advantage of its quad-camera setup, the device features the Zeiss Cinema Capture and Editor, a powerful camera app and editing suite, an Action Cam mode, which can capture smooth video at 60fps, and OZO audio recording.

Some of the Nokia 8.3 5G’s other specs include a 4500mAh battery, a USB-C port for charging/data, a 3.5mm headphone jack, expandable storage support, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor integrated with the power button. Owners will get two years of software upgrades and three years of monthly security updates as the device is part of the Android One and Android Enterprise Recommended programs. As an additional perk, the handset will get six months of Google One’s 100GB storage tier for free.

Nokia Power EarBuds

With wireless earbuds becoming one of the hottest items on the market, HMD Global has introduced the Nokia Power EarBuds, which features an IPX7 water resistance rating, 6mm graphene drivers, and Bluetooth 5.0.

HMD Global says the earbuds offer up to 150 hours of total playtime, which includes recharging the headphones inside the 3000mAh charging case. The case itself is charged via its USB Type-C port. Each earphone features a 50mAh battery, which is good enough for a few hours of listening time.

Nokia announced a number of other accessories, including the Nokia Power EarBuds Lite, the Nokia Wireless Speaker, clear cases for the Nokia 3.4 and Nokia 2.4, and the Nokia Entertainment Flip Cover with a credit card slot that’s made of vegan leather. The Nokia Power EarBuds Lite promise 35 hours of total playtime with the case, IPX7 water resistance, and they’ll be available sometime after the Power Earbuds launch. The Nokia Wireless Speaker is a portable Bluetooth speaker that offers up to 4 hours of battery life, has a mesh covering, has an integrated microphone, can be linked together for stereo sound, and comes in eco-friendly packaging made of 100% recyclable paper.

Lastly, the company announced HMD Connect Pro, a global roaming SIM for IoT and enterprise use. Businesses can purchase SIM cards in bulk to keep their devices connected around the world without worrying about roaming. HMD Global provides centralized SIM management for cost control and fraud prevention, securely routed real-time data usage information, live diagnostics, and troubleshooting.
