So far, HMD Global has revamped Nokia 3310, Nokia 8810, Nokia 2720, and Nokia 5310 XpressMusic. All these products had one thing in common, i.e. they were immensely popular during Nokia’s reign in Global presence. HMD Global is banking on Nokia’s recall value and banking on some of its hugely popular devices. They are slowly bringing them back to life with updated specifications. Recently, news has emerged regarding Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000 and how HMD Global is planning to revamp two of Nokia’s well-known premium product back into life again.
The leak came from a German tech blog, Winfuture. Although, the leak was intercepted from Telia, which happens to be a carrier provider in Denmark. However, by the looks of it, Nokia 6300 4G and Nokia 8000 4G will probably be released in European markets. The new device will feature 4G connectivity and Wi-Fi calling facility.
Reminiscing Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000…
The Nokia 6300 was first launched in 2007. It featured a 2″ colour display and a 2MP camera. Back in the day, it was considered as a premium offering because of its colour display. Apart from that, it came with the 3rd edition of the S40 operating system and a microSD card slot for memory expansion. It fetched around EUR 300 during that time.
Moving on to Nokia 8000, the device was considered as a premium device because of its stainless steel built and soft-slide covers. But the new one will most probably be based on the Nokia 8000 series and retain its slide-out keypad covers.
However, these are all assumption, and it is still unclear if the phones will look exactly like its previous iterations. Although, it is certain that these will probably be based on KaiOS if it turns out to be a basic feature phone. However, that can change if it turns out to be a smartphone, which means it will be based on Android.
Other than that, HMD Global will unveil its Nokia 6.3, the Nokia 7.3 and the flagship Nokia 9.3 PureView by the end of this year and most likely in Europe before other regions.
