Nokia 6300 4G and Nokia 8000 4G Launched

Over the past few years, apart from making its flagship game strong, the HMD Global-owned Smartphone maker Nokia has been focusing on remaking its famous feature phones from the 2000s. The most recent remake is the classic Nokia 6300 4G that was first launched in 2007. Alongside the Nokia 6300 4G, the Finnish company has also announced the Nokia 8000 4G, whose design puts it miles ahead of the other feature phones.

Design and Display

The Nokia 6300 4G does not look like the original at all except for the power button at the top. Thus, unlike other feature phone remakes, this one does not evoke a feeling of nostalgia. The handset comes with a 2.4-inch TFT display with 240 x 320 resolution.

On the other hand, the Nokia 8000 4G might be the company’s best-looking feature phone to date. It flaunts a glass-like shell and a finish that is similar to the NCVM coating seen on a lot of smartphones. Moreover, the curved keyboard that flushes with the display and the frame gives it a chic vibe. It features a 2.8-inch screen with 240 x 320 resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio.

Internals and Storage

Both Smartphones are powered by a Snapdragon 210 processor topped with 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of built-in storage with support for SD card. KaiOS handles the software front.

A significant upgrade that both smartphones bring is 4G support and a Wi-Fi hotspot. They are also equipped with GPS, Bluetooth, dual nano-SIM support (select markets), FM radio, and an audio jack.

Cameras

The Nokia 6300 4G packs a 3 MP rear camera sensor while the 8000 4G features a 2 MP sensor on the back.

Battery and Pricing

Both handsets are fueled by a 1500 mAh cell that charges over a MicroUSB port. According to the company, the battery will last up to 27 days in standby and provide more than 3 hours of 4G talk time.

The Nokia 6300 4G will retail for $58 while the Nokia 8000 4G will cost $93, but there is no news on availability at the moment.
