Nokia 8.3 5G – No Time To Die Photoshoot : Behind The Scene

HMD Global partnered with the upcoming Bond movie – No Time To Die – to market their Nokia 8.3 5G smartphone with a photoshoot.

Watch the behind-the-scenes video for a look at how much effort they went into this photoshoot, and the final output from the Nokia 8.3 5G smartphone!


Nokia 8.3 5G : No Time To Die Marketing Photoshoot

In March 2020, just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, HMD Global announced that they won the rights to be the official phone partner for the 25th James Bond movie – No Time To Die.

This bought them the right to include into the movie, both the iconic Nokia 3310 and the Nokia 8.3 5G – their upcoming 5G smartphone with a PureView quad camera system featuring ZEISS optics.

The partnership also bought them the rights to an exclusive No Time To Die marketing photoshoot with Lashana Lynch, who plays 00 agent Nomi in the movie.

We should point out that while the Nokia 8.3 5G was featured in the movie and this photoshoot, it was not used to actually film any part of the movie.

Even for this photoshoot, the amount of preparation is incredible and really elaborate. They even brought in social media photographer Ben MacLean to take the photo at the iconic Pinewood Studios, with a 30-foot rig suspending him in the air.


Nokia 8.3 5G : The Ultimate Shot

Here is the ultimate shot that Ben MacLean took at No Time To Die photoshoot using the Nokia 8.3 5G smartphone.

Impressive! But if you are planning to buy the Nokia 8.3 5G because you think it will let you take such photos, you will be sorely disappointed.

It would be remiss of us not to remind you all of the elaborate preparation and lighting needed to achieve that shot.

Of course, that’s the purpose of such marketing efforts – to convince you of what’s potentially achievable with a lot of effort… not what most users will end up with.

That’s why we make sure that our smartphone reviews include real world photo and video samples taken on-the-go like normal people.

The Present with Jun-myeon Kim, Seul-ki Kim + Su-bin Yoo!

Samsung just released The Present – a short film featuring Jun-myeon Kim (EXO’s Suho), Seul-ki Kim and Su-bin Yoo! Here is the short film in its entirety!


The Present with Jun-myeon Kim, Seul-ki Kim + Su-bin Yoo!

Inspired by Samsung’s corporate citizenship vision of Enabling People through themes of determination, entrepreneurship and collaboration, it stars Ha-kyun Shin as Sang-gu, a man who time-travels to present-day Seoul from 1969.

Sang-gu meets young entrepreneurs Ha-neul (Jun-myeon Kim, aka EXO’s Suho), Bo-ra (Seul-ki Kim) and Young-bok (Su-bin Yoo) and ends up helping them as they work to create a thermal imaging camera to use in fire and rescue operations.

“I wanted the film to be entertaining,” noted Director Jin-ho Hur, chiefly known for his work in the melodrama genre, “but I also wanted to accurately capture all the joys and sorrows faced by today’s young people as they go about launching their own business endeavors.”


The Present Highlights Samsung Corporate Vision + Ventures

The film is more than just entertainment. It both highlights Samsung’s corporate vision, as well as two key Samsung ventures :

  • Samsung’s venture acceleration program C-Lab Outside, which supports young Korean startups by facilitating optimal environments for them to grow and create new value.
  • Samsung’s IGNIS Thermal Imaging Camera, developed by C-Lab, their in-house corporate incubation program to help firefighters in prevention and rescue activities.

“We hope that ‘The Present’ will encourage young adults who are working hard to keep pursuing their dreams,” said Jae-woong Jeong, Vice President of Samsung Electronics’ Corporate Communications Team, “and that the film will convey to audiences Samsung’s citizenship vision of Enabling People, which itself reflects the company’s commitment to helping fulfill the innate potential of each and every individual.”
