Nostalgia strikes back. Nokia 8110 4G launched | Price, Specs, Features and Availability details inside
The "Banana phone" aka the legendary Nokia 8110 has been relaunched in a new avatar. The all new Nokia 8110 4G as the name suggests comes with 4G connectivity and is the newest member of the Nokia "Originals" family. Same as the original Nokia 8110, new Nokia 8110 4G comes with a unique form factor with a slider mechanism to reveal the keypad. This makes it the most unique and beautiful feature phone that is currently available on the market.
Nokia 8110 got the "Banana Phone" name from its curved design and the newly launched Nokia 8110 4G follows the beautiful curved design language of its predecessor and now also comes in
Banana Blue. Oops...Sorry. "Banana Yellow" which makes it even more attractive. Nokia 8110 4G also has one cool feature. To answer a phone call on the Nokia 8110 4G all you need to do is slide down the panel and you are done (Matrix Style 😜). Brought back some old memories. Didn't it? 😉
Now, don't assume Nokia 8110 4G to be a basic feature phone which can be just used for voice calls and messages. Nokia 8110 4G runs on KaiOS and comes with many apps including Google Assistant, Google Maps, Google Search, Facebook, Twitter and many other apps can also be downloaded from its KaiOS powered app store. It is not meant to replace a proper smartphone but it surely is better than the feature phones that are currently available both in terms of features and design. Nokia 8110 4G can also be used as a WiFi hotspot and comes with GPS too
Now coming to the specifications, Nokia 8110 4G comes with a Snapdragon 205 Processor, 512MB RAM and has a 4GB Internal Storage which should be more than enough to store the images captured with its 2MP Camera with LED Flash. To keep the phone running we have a 1500mAh battery which should easily last for a day.
