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 Nokia 8 Smartphone Introduces Dual-Sight Bothie!

On Friday, we were invited to the launch of the Nokia 8 Dual-Sight smartphone by HMD Global. As their flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8 was designed with content creators in mind, and boasts three world’s first features. Let’s check out what those features are!


The Nokia 8 Dual-Sight Smartphone Revealed!

With a 7.3 mm thin unibody chassis precision-milled from a single block of 6000 series aluminium before being refined through a 40-stage process of machining, anodising and polishing, the Nokia 8 is a work of art in the hand.

The Nokia 8 is not only powered by the very fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, it also runs on the latest pure, secure, and uncluttered Android. Vijay Thangavelu, Country Manager (Malaysia and Myanmar), HMD Global tells more in this video :

Dual-Sight Video Capability

The Nokia 8 is the world’s first smartphone with Dual-Sight video capability. Dual-Sight simultaneously records from both the front and rear cameras in a split screen visual for both photos and videos.

In fact, the Nokia 8 smartphone can livestream Dual-Sight videos natively and in real-time to social feeds such as Facebook and YouTube. With just one touch, you can share your memories in an more immersive way with your family and friends.

Nokia OZO Audio

The Nokia 8 is also the first smartphone to feature Nokia OZO Audio, placing exclusive Hollywood technology in the palm of your hand. The OZO spatial 360° audio brings a fully immersive audio experience to your 4K video.

Nokia 8 combines three microphones with exclusive Nokia acoustic algorithms to capture audio with immersive 360° spatial surround sound. Share your 4K videos with OZO Audio anywhere – binaural codecs enable high fidelity playback even on devices without OZO Audio.

ZEISS Optics

Although Nokia has a long history of partnership with ZEISS, the Nokia 8 is the first smartphone from HMD Global to feature ZEISS optics. In fact, all three of its 13 MP cameras use ZEISS optics for the best possible images
