Nokia's iconic 'banana' phone making a comeback soon

After raising the Nokia 3310 back from the dead at last year's MWC, HMD followed up with yet another classic being reborn - the Nokia 8110 4G! Nokia 7 Plus is priced at Euros399 (Rs 31,700 approx), and will be available starting April 2018.

Following the surprise hit of the Nokia 3310 revival at the 2017 Mobile World Congress, the now HMD-owned Nokia brand is bringing back another retro hit - 8110 4G.

Although Nokia's other new phones, like the 8 Sirocco and New Nokia 6, are coming in April, the 8110 4G is arriving a bit later. Building upon that success, the company has now rehashed the Nokia 8110.

The device runs the stock build of Android 8.0 Oreo and also is IP67 certified for water and dust resistance.

The dual rear camera is consists of some important features like, a dual-tone LED flash as well as Zeiss optics, which can make this fact completely identical to the Nokia 7 Plus that was also launched in the same event. The display is QVGA display and it comes with a resolution of 240×320 pixels.

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.

This is unedited, unformatted feed from the Press Trust of India wire. While this was a global launch, HMD didn't announce plans for specific markets including the USA market.

The Nokia 7 Plus features a Snapdragon 660 processor with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and what HMD claims is 2 days of battery use with average use. It can also be called as a full-fledged Internet connecting device. The 32GB of internal storage can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. HMD Global is now calling its "bothie" feature Dual Sight, and it lets you superimpose two shots taken with both the front and rear cameras. Popular apps are also available through the phone's app store, including Google Assistant, Google Search, Google Maps, Facebook and Twitter.

"The Nokia 8110 comes with the craftsmanship you expect from a Nokia phone, delivering durability and reliability as standard", HMD say. Both the cameras use different lens which will get you the ideal photos. Some connectivity options like single-SIM, 4G LTE (VoLTE), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System made it more interesting. And yes, it comes with a revamped version of Snake.
