The Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000 are making a comeback; new 4G models to debut in a few weeks
Roland Quandt claims that HMD Global has some nostalgia up its sleeve. Writing on Twitter and WinFuture, Quandt states that the company plans to revive the Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000, following the successes of re-launching the Nokia 3310 and Nokia 8110 4G.
The two reborn classics will support 4G LTE, according to Quandt, so they should also support other modern connectivity like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. If the Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000 are anything like the Nokia 8110 4G, then they should run KaiOS, a fork of Firefox OS. KaiOS is also open-source and has spawned custom ROMs, such as GerdaOS.
Quandt expects HMD Global to unveil the Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000, rebranded as the Nokia 6300 4G and Nokia 8000 4G, within the next few weeks. The two devices should launch with popular apps installed, like Facebook, WhatsApp, Google Maps, YouTube and Twitter, among others. We would expect HMD Global to have improved the Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000 in a few areas, but new 4G models should retain the charm of the original models.
