The octa-core Snapdragon 730 uses Kryo 470 cores at up to 2.2GHz and is built on an 8nm process. It has an Adreno 618 GPU, a Hexagon 688 processor with a tensor accelerator, a Spectra 350 “computer vision” image signal processor, an X15 LTE modem, and supports Wi-Fi 6. Many of these elements should help bring AI-powered processing and imagery to not-quite-flagship devices.

Insiders recently claimed to have a prototype of the device and shared some other details. The camera will use a quad-camera combination. Among its sensors, there will be a 24MP main sensor, a 12MP super wide-angle sensor, and a pair of 2MP sensors: a depth of field sensor + portrait style lens. Previous reports have suggested the Nokia 6.3’s camera will support Zeiss-branded technology, which has been the case with most of the mid-range phones from HMD Global.
Finally, the source said that the Nokia 6.3 will sport a fingerprint scanner inside the power button. According to reports, the Nokia 6.3 will be a compact phone designed for one-handed use. Like the 5.3, it will sport a water-drop screen design. However, there are also some rumors suggesting it may use a trendier punch-hole screen design.
The Nokia 6.3 should be available sometime in the third quarter. Its predecessor, the Nokia 6.2 was released last September. The manufacturer has not confirmed launch details. But looking at its features known at the moment, this device will lineup against a host of brands like Xiaomi, Realme, Oppo, and Vivo among others in the Indian market.
