A new poster may show the rumored Nokia 8000 4G's design
Nokia is currently thought to have phones that will resurrect the old 6300 and 8000 product names in (probably) late 2020. This rumor broke in the absence of supporting renders, however, leaving potential fans to imagine updated physical keyboards with a signature design language. However, the leaker in question - Roland Quandt at WinFuture - has now returned to this subject with what may be genuine marketing material for one of them.
It may confirm that the putative 8000 4G does indeed come with ("hardwearing 3D curved") number and navigation buttons, complete with a modern take on the old-school D-pad under its relatively tiny screen. Some copy along with this image unambiguously identifies it as a Nokia 8000 while indicating that it does indeed have 4G/LTE and can, moreover, act as a hotspot thanks to this connectivity.
This "Nokia 8000 4G" poster also lists WhatsApp and Facebook support as selling points, which is as strong a hint as any that it will be a KaiOS device on its launch. Quandt also asserts that it will have a 2MP main camera and an LCD QVGA display at 2.8 inches across. Internally, it will run on a Snapdragon 210 processor, half a gigabyte (GB) of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.
The "8000 4G" may support microSD cards, but only ones of 128GB in size at the most. Finally, its alleged poster touts a "glass-like design", which may imply that its chassis includes plastic developed to mimic this material, as with the OnePlus Nord or Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.
Therefore, the potential Nokia 8000 4G is shaping up to be a feature (if not a slider) phone that runs the world's main Android/iOS alternative, albeit a relatively high-end one that might leverage its classic appeal and particularly compact form-factor in attracting users in its target market. However, that may depend on the price announced on its debut.
