Nokia si continuing its feature phone experiment with not one, but two such devices at once. The company behind the current Nokia Mobile brand today announced the Nokia 6300 4G and the Nokia 8000 4G, a device tandem aimed at consumers looking for a backup phone in case of an emergency, or those who aren’t thrilled with the privacy sacrifices using contemporary Android and iOS smartphones requires.

To that effect, the new pair of Nokia feature phones will be hoping to provide users with a glimpse of an alternate reality in which we never truly moved beyond J2ME devices, functionality wise.

While some might find that limiting, others could find the straightforward list of the duo’s capabilities to be refreshingly liberating.

Especially in the sub-$100 price segment that’s nearly unheard of in this day and age. Speaking of which, the Nokia 6300 4G and the Nokia 8000 4G will be sold at approximately $59 and $99, respectively. HMD Global intends to release these feature phones internationally over the course of the next several weeks.

The new handsets hence appear to be functional successors to the Nokia 3310 (2017) that the company released to excellent market response over three years ago.
