HMD Global, licensed under the Nokia mobile brand, plans to revive other feature phones from the past, and this time around, we may see the classic Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000 series phones again with some tweaks. Although the specifications of both phones are unclear at the moment, it is safe to assume that the devices may feature 4G connectivity and an updated look – similar to what we saw earlier with the renewed Nokia 215 4G and Nokia 3310 4G feature phones.
The development was published by Winfuer, which found “Nokia 8000 4G and Nokia 6300 4G” on the list to support VoWiFi calling gender (or Wi-Fi calling gender) on Scandinavian network operator Telia. The list includes another feature phone, the Nokia 225 4G, which was launched last month and is priced at Rs 3,499. To recall, the Nokia 6300, which was released in 2006, already features a color display, a 2-megapixel shooter, a Nokia Series 40 (S40) operating system and a slim body with a stainless steel finish. The Nokia 8000, on the other hand, can be based on numerous 8000-series models. The Nokia Nokia 8600 Luna was one of the last feature phones in the series to pack a color display in addition to the sliding form factor, 2 megapixel camera, FM radio and MP3 music player.
Notably, the 8000 series includes the premium Nokia 8800 Art Carbon Edition (2008) with a metal body, OELD screen, 3..15-megapixel autofocus of Tofocus and 4GB of board storage. Still, HMD Global will launch the new Nokia 8000 series phone and Nokia 6300 with 4G launch, which will spread sadness among the users who remember Nokia’s popular offerings. The company may also include the classic Snake game in phones previously seen with Nokia 8110 4G, Nokia 3310 4G, Nokia 215 4G and Nokia 225 4G phones. If the phone’s operating system has also been upgraded to QIOS, users will be able to use WhatsApp. It will be a useful feature for those entry-level phone users who want to enjoy the best of both feature phones and smartphones (well, partly).
