Nokia Mobile today officially announced two new 4G featurephones – the Nokia 6300 4G and the Nokia 8000 4G. Unofficial info about the two devices has been leaking online for quite some time now, but today Nokia Mobile decided to make them official.
The Nokia 6300 4G comes in a nice-looking plastic body available in interesting colors like Cyan Green, Light Charcoal and Powder White. The device features a 2.4″ QVGA display and the standard numeric keypad. It’s a smart feature phone running KaiOS with the help of Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 in combination with 512MB of RAM. The battery capacity sits at 1500mAh, the rear camera has a VGA, and the phone comes with a 3.5 mm headhone jack, MicroSD card expansion, FM Radio, LTE Cat 4, WiFi, Bluetooth, A-GPS and dual nano SIM support.
The Nokia 8000 4G shares most of the internals with the Nokia 6300 4G, including Snapdragon 210, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage that is expandable via a MicroSD card, 1500mAh battery and the same connectivity options. The difference is that the Nokia 8000 4G has a bigger 2.8″ display and a 2MP camera, but also comes in a more premium housing. Nokia Mobile really wanted to create a refined product with the 8000 4G, so the device does feature a nice design with a glass-like shell and metalised chrome midframe finish. Nokia Mobile also mentions a 3D-curved key mat that wraps at the edges and should ensure a confident grip, alongside premium looks. The color options Nokia 8000 4G will be available in include Onyx, Opal, Citrine and Topaz – all inspired by gemstones.

Thanks to KaiOS, both devices have access to WhatsApp, YouTube, Facebook and other apps from the KaiOS webstore. There is also Google Assistant, as well as Google Maps. Both of them feature WiFi, so using them as WiFi hotspots should also be a neat feature.
