HMD prepares the return of the Nokia 6300 and a Nokia 8000 in a 4G version that will arrive in the next weeks, according to WinFuture
Over the past few years HMD (which is licensed under the Nokia brand) has resurrected a number of mythical phones from the first decade of the 2000's, when Nokia dominated the market. Among the most relevant are the Nokia 3310 (2017) or the peculiar Nokia 8110 4G Reloaded... But it doesn't end there, according to WinFuture we will see two new models re-launched soon: the Nokia 6300 and the Nokia 8000.
As WinFuture has been able to find out, HMD is preparing the presentation of two new phones that will add to the catalog of Nokia's resurrected icons. The Finnish company has in mind to bring back the Nokia 6300 and the Nokia 8000. These two phones were popular enough at the time, for different reasons.
The resurrection of two classics: Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000
The Nokia 6300 is one of the most polished phones of the brand we can remember in its golden age. Introduced in 2006 and launched in 2007. It stood out because of its comfortable size, the aluminum back and that "huge" two-inch screen. But perhaps one of the most interesting things was the arrival with Symbian S40, the last version at that time that made a major leap in functionality.
The other phone that HMD plans to launch is not really a specific model, but one inspired by a Nokia series. Specifically in the 8000 series, which is characterized by sliding covers for the keyboard and for appealing to the most premium range. One of the latest and most relevant was the Nokia 8800, which slid the screen instead of the keyboard cover.
Most likely these new versions 2020 edition come with a basic operating system and limited to a few popular applications. What is more than likely is the inclusion of 4G connectivity and surely a battery capable of lasting several weeks. Camera? Maybe some around 5 MP and limited to photos and short videos. Not so much because of the capacities of the lens, but because of the minimum storage memory they will surely bring.
These phones are usually limited on purpose. In the end, it is the main advantage they have along with the nostalgia they evoke. Anyway we will know soon if HMD finally shows them to the world. According to WinFuture, they should be introduced in a few weeks.
