The Nokia 6300 4G and the 8000 4G are smartphones launched by HMD. The Nokia 6300 4G was launched in the US for $69.99 which is equal to 5,099 Indian Rupee. The US launch is an indicator that a launch in India is imminent most probably between now and March 2021 with the same price range of Rs. 50,999. The launch will also go global which means people from other countries will also get a chance get to purchase it and not just in India.
Nokia 6300 4G
The Nokia 6300 4G, which is just a remake of the old Nokia 6300 launched back in November 2006 now run on KaiOS which enables it to run apps like Whatsapp and Facebook. It can also be considered as a ‘resurrection’ as the device had been discontinued. The design is however the same down to the screen size. Another addition is that the new Nokia 6300 4G now supports 4G connections which are most probably for Whatsapp usage and voice calls as streaming videos or browsing on the tiny smartphone is nowhere near enjoyable.
