PPI - what on earth 8.3 5G?!

Hi all,

I was thinking about screens/displays recently, thinking how despite the science I still prefer my Nokia 8 in 1440p mode rather than 1080p mode (it's a hidden setting). Apparently my eyes shouldn't be able to see the difference but, apart from the obvious changes in text size and things, I think I can.

Which got me thinking about what PPI the screens of other HMD phones are. And guess what? Our latest premium (not flagship) phone has one of the lowest PPIs of all - step forward the 8.3 5G! 🤣

Why? Why would HMD release a phone with a PPI lower than the original Nokia 6? Lower than the 5.1? Lower than even the Wiki Rakuten Mini which has only a 720p screen?! 😲

Just bizarre. Anyone got any idea why they did this?

Cheers 🙂
