MWC 2018: HMD Revives Matrix-Fame Nokia 8110

The Nokia 8110 is a 4G feature phone comes complete with the iconic curved slider design.

"It's fun, it's the only phone that fits your face, and we're bringing it back in a fresh, modern take - this time in 4G", said Nokia. The new feature phone runs on Smart Feature OS.

The company's new Nokia One is a budget device that runs a streamlined version of the latest Android software, called Android Oreo Go Edition. "Think of us as distant cousins, not siblings nor children", stated the KaiOS website. Out of these five phones, four are Android smartphones and one is a feature phone.

The new phone is a successor of 1996 Nokia and was features in 1999 famous movie "The Matrix". However, given the industry's penchant for glass and metal covers it's probably safe to assume that the Nokia 1 will be the only smartphone to sport the covers, at least for now.

The Nokia 8110 4G price has been set at Euro 79 (roughly Rs. 6,300), excluding taxes and subsidies, what HMD Global is calling the global average retail price.

Mobile phone market tracker Counterpoint Research said Nokia phones surged during 2017 to become the world's No. 1 seller of low-priced feature phones and No. 11 in smartphones after only entering the market previous year. Up front, a 2.4-inch QVGA display with a resolution of 320×240 pixels makes the rounds, solidifying the 8110 4G's feature phone status. The Nokia 8 Sirocco price in India is all set to declare by the HMD Global. There isn't a lot that manufacturers can do when it comes to processor speeds, and we've reached a point of diminishing returns in terms of the amount of RAM and storage that can be stuffed into a phone.

The phone is bundled with a revamped version of the iconic Snake game. The only disappointment is the absence of MicroSD card slot in the device. The Nokia 1 joins the other Android Go smartphones such as Alcatel 1X and ZTE Tempo Go those were also unveiled at the tech show.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco delivers powerful storytelling features including enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics and carefully tuned acoustics with Nokia spatial audio.

Nokia 7 Plus has dual rear Zeiss cameras and the company claims a two-day battery life.
