Are you one of the countless people who are tired of the metal and glass sandwiches we call phones today. Are you one of those people who want something that is a throwback to the good old days of proudly owning a "real phone".
Well not to worry, Nokia just announced the Nokia 8110 4G, which is yet another device from the great manufacturer. It's a fresh new remake of the classic 8110 device that was introduced roughly 20 years ago and it featured alongside Keanu Reeves in the major hit The Matrix. The slider phone tucks away a physical keyboard below a plastic shell which reminds us how it used to be done.
Yes yes, it is still feature phone with modest specs. Though it still manages to be a little smart as it runs YunOS, a modified version of Android. Not only that, it can run a few essential apps like Facebook, Twitter, Google Maps, the Google Assistant, and of course fan favourite even Snake. There is still the option of running more apps, provided that the hardware can run it. A dual-core Qualcomm 205 chipset running at 1.1 GHz, which has 512MB of RAM and 4GB of built-in storage that's shared between the OS and the user-installed apps runs things under the hood. The screen is a 2.4-inch QVGA display with a resolution of 320×240 pixels which definitely is not modern smartphone category. Also no selfie camera, you just have to make do with the 2MP camera at the back. Remember those days when 1500 mah batteries were actually a lot, well thanks to this hardware those days are back. At least for this phone.
According to Nokia said users should expect around 25 days of standby life on LTE. The phone is rounded up with Wi-Fi functionality, 3.5mm audio jack, GPS, Micro USB 2.0, and Bluetooth 4.1.The Nokia 8110 4G will launch in Black and Banana Blue Yellow in May and will cost around 110 dollars. Obviously it is not for everyone, but by now those people who the phone was intended for already know deep down in their hearts what a Nokia means to them.
