In this news, we discuss the Nokia 8 V 5G UW brings faster 5G speeds on spruced-up Nokia 8.3 5G in US.
Nokia 8V 5G UW is the latest smartphone from HMD Global to offer the blazing fast 5G speeds. With its odd name, the new Nokia phone is the second 5G handset in the company’s lineup after the Nokia 8.3 5G, but it’s the first to offer mmWave bandwidth for 5G in addition to the regular sub-6GHz. The handset will be able to use the bandwidth for the fastest 5G speeds in some areas of the United States, but this availability is also limited.
HMD Global has partnered with Verizon to sell the Nokia 8 V 5G UW in the United States. This means that you will be subscribed to Verizon cellular services when you purchase this handset. Verizon offers mmWave 5G services available in select countries only. Since the smartphone is exclusive to Verizon, HMD Global will not be launching the phone in other markets. But this is not necessary since it is an improved variant of Nokia 8.3 5G incorporating mmWave technology.
The Nokia 8 V 5G UW costs $ 699.99 (around Rs 52,000) in the US. It’s only available in Meteor Gray color and will go on sale November 12 at Verizon online and offline stores and at Best Buy.

Nokia also offers Android 10 on this handset, but it is expected to roll out Android 11 software to this handset soon. A fingerprint sensor is mounted on the power button of the device.
