The repeatedly delayed James Bond film, No Time to Die, may have to undergo reshoots due to its product placement of Nokia phones – which will be over two years out of date when the film is finally released in October. 

The Bond franchise has a long history of product placement, from Aston Martin and Rolex to camera brands like Canon, Nikon and Olympus. And for No Time to Die, the filmmakers apparently have a deal in place to showcase the best camera phones from Nokia – including the Nokia 8.3 5G (although it has, at least, just received the latest Android 11 update).
