In spite of having low-cost touch screen display phones, there is a great demand for feature-rich keypad handsets. This sort of trend is observed at a greater length in developing nations like India.
To satisfy their demand, the HMD Global has got Nokia feature-rich phones that work on 4G technology for faster connectivity experience. The Finnish mobile phone company has released Nokia 8000 4G and Nokia 6300 4G handsets.
Surprisingly, these low-cost 4G handsets support popular apps like WhatsApp, Google Maps, YouTube and Assistant. Built on KaiOS, both Nokia 8000 4G and Nokia 6300 4G handsets will be available in all global markets including India.
Design-wise, the Nokia 6300 4G makes us nostalgic with the old 2006 version. Let’s check what HMD Global has packed in Nokia 8000 and Nokia 6300 handsets.
Nokia 8000 4G Specifications:
The Nokia 8000 series will sport a 2.8-inch display (320 X 240p) with QVGA resolution. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset and 512MB RAM, it houses a 4GB internal storage. Surprisingly, this has got a 2MP still camera.
The storage functionality is expandable up to 32GB using a cheap microSD card. Connectivity-wise, it includes Wi-Fi hotspot, dual nano-SIM slots, A-GPS, headphone jack and FM radio. Available in Onyx Black, Citrine Gold colour, Opal White, and Topaz Blue colour, the Nokia 8000 4G handset will retail at $93 (₹6900 in Indian currency).
Backed by 1500mAh battery, this Nokia 8000 4G provides a standby up to 25 days on 4G connectivity.
Nokia 6300 4G Specifications:
The Nokia 6300 4G handset features a 2.4-inch LCD display with 320x240p resolution. Leaving VGA camera setup, all the other specs remain the same. Retailing at $58 (₹4300 in Indian currency), this feature-rich handset comes in Light Charcoal, White and Cyan Green colours.
Weighing just 104.7 grams, probably this is the lightest handset providing 4G experience.
When there’s a great demand for JioPhone, one can expect a similar acceptance for Nokia 4G handsets. However, a price of 3K would be more reasonable to get the mass appeal in both rural and urban market.
