After stealing the limelight at last year’s MWC with the reimagined Nokia 3310, HMD Global has chosen to rerelease another classic model from the massive Nokia’s archive. This time around, it’s the Nokia 8110 which is fondly referred to many as the “Nokia banana phone” and was part of the famed sci-fi box office, The Matrix.
Built with a 2.4-inch QVGA display, the 2018 version is also powered by Qualcomm 205 dual-core processor. It is also equipped with 512MB LPDDR3 RAM and 4GB internal storage alongside 2MP rear camera and 1500mAh.
Despite the specs above, the redesigned Nokia 8110 for 2018 is still a feature phone even though it comes with 4G LTE connectivity. That being said, it will also come with a number of essential smartphone-like features.
Among them is the hotspot capability alongside support for e-mail, calendar and contact syncing through Gmail as well as Outlook. The phone also apparently features its own app store although the number of apps that have been confirmed for the device is still rather small at the moment which include Facebook, Google Assistant, Google Search, and Twitter.
Of course, there is Snake as well for those who need even more nostalgia to go with the phone. Available starting from this May onwards, the redesigned Nokia 8110 4G carries a price tag of EUR 79 (about RM 381).
