As part of the Nokia Originals theme , HMD Global ,now the parent company of Nokia brand , has already relaunched Nokia 3310 last year and this year making the things more exciting has relaunched Nokia 8110 , the original banana phone , featured in the Matrix as Nokia 8110 4G.
The new Nokia 8110 4G , runs KaiOS on MSM8905 Dual Core 1.1 GHz processor with 512mb ram . However don’t expect it to be a full featured smart phone , but the phone which connects featuring Facebook and Twitter .
Nokia 8110 4G , will come in Black and Yellow color , Poly Carbonate body weighing just 117g and a 2.45 inch curved QVGA screen with IP52 rating , so occasional drip won’t hurt the phone.
The phone is 133.45mm tall , 49.2 m wide and 14.9mm thick given the slider.
As implied by name , it supports 4G LTE , but it’s a world phone with support for 2G and 3G too along with Wifi b/g/n Bluetooth and GPS/AGPS support.
Nokia 8110 comes with 4GB internal storage but external SD Card storage is supported , beside it supports Dual SIM . Once I get my hands on it, will have to check if it support Dual SIM plus SD Card or only One SIM with SD Card like Samsung.
With 1500 mAh , battery , the total talk time is 7 hrs and 25 days standby time , it also supports 48hrs of music playback and 6.1 hrs of video playback ( although I don’t recommend watching video on a 2.45 inch screen) but the device is good for music supporting AAC, AMR, MP3, MIDI, Vorbis along with my favorite FM Radio ( again need headphone to be used to as antenna )
With 2MP rear camera , it sure is a blast from the past so don’t expect any Instagram worthy photos form it.
Nokia 8110 4G, comes in a basic package with phone , handsfree , charger and manual and will be available from May’18 for a price of USD 97
Will I buy this phone ?
YES , Definitely , Nokia 3310, puts me off a little due to it 2G speed limitation and having a LTE connection even 3G doesn’t cut it for me . I already carry two phone for my work purpose with once used for data and one for calls only, so can easily replace the calling one with Nokia 8810 4G , which color I will get , Yellow of course , why settle for the ordinary black .
