Nokia 8110: A Fruit Phone
The Nokia 3310 was the sensation of MWC 3310, a very old phone rebooted for this new generation. But it does not end there. MWC 2018 may not bring about new Nokia devices as they have no new flagships out there. But what if I told you that Nokia has built something greater than last year?
I frankly say that I don’t remember the original Nokia 8110. It is impossible for because I also born in the same year the phone was launched.
The original Nokia 8110 was launched on September 8, 1996 (you probably know my age now :P) and this was the first slider phone in the market.
The old slider had some action features: the magnetic slider helps you to receive calls or turn on the LED backlight when you pop it out.
Let’s move onward to the new Nokia 8110. I’m going to start with the colors because matte yellow and charcoal black are both quite striking.
This phone has 2.4-inch QVGA display. The phone is shaped like a banana, so you will find a curved display like the one on LG G Flex.
I really appreciate that Nokia decided to go with Snapdragon chipset in this phone. You will get a 1.1 GHz Snapdragon 205 along with 512 MB RAM and 4 GB of onboard storage. However, it is sad that you cannot put in micro-SD card due to the lack of a slot.
Connectivity-wise, the Nokia 8110 is quite up-to-date date, supporting 4G cellular networks. You also get a micro USB port for charging and data transfer. Other connectivity options include FM radio, Bluetooth, GPS and a 3.5-mm headphone jack. It runs Kai OS and has a web browser preloaded.
It is priced at a simple €79 and sales start from May 2018.
