Remember the iconic Nokia 8110 phone that came out in 1996? Popularly called the banana phone is now making a comeback with several improvements to meet today’s standards. In the new version, we might see several upgrades such as revamped design, 4G connectivity and more. After reviving another popular device named Nokia 3310, HMD Global is now in process to bring in this handset with better features and specs. The company is working to make this ‘dumb’ phone into one of the smart devices. With that said, let us now look at the details and know more about the upcoming Nokia phone.
The quirky design is what makes the Nokia 8110 4G a smartphone to look out for. With a black display and a bright yellow color body, the handset looks similar to the banana, and hence it is generally called the banana phone. With a retro sliding cover on the keyboard and curves in the corners, this phone from Nokia definitely looks unique and different from others in the market now. And when compared to the Nokia 3310 of last year, it is bigger in size with the slider open. The Nokia 8110 4G banana phone retains the compact size when the slider is closed and fits perfectly in hands. Meanwhile, it will sport a 2.4-inch TFT display with a pixel resolution of 240×320 pixels. The screen is not touch-sensitive but features navigation keys under the cover. The display specs may not match with that of the latest phones, yet the screen is still fine for viewing basic pictures, text, and simple games.
Similar to the display, the camera specifications of this Nokia phone are also quite basic. In the rear, it gets a 2MP camera that is assisted by a single LED flash. The actual version lacks this element and it includes no front facing option as well. However, this compact handset allows you to take occasional snaps and small videos.
When it comes to the battery, the device will be offered with a Li-Ion 1500mAh unit, which is one of its key aspects. As claimed by the company, the battery of Nokia 8110 4G in UAE gives up to 11 hours of talk-time, whereas the standby comes to nearly 600 hours. This indicates that the phone provides standby for up to 25 days. In addition to this, it will also be offered with 8.5 hour LTE voice call on a single charge.

It will be paired with 4GB RAM that comes with internal memory of 512MB. Besides, it will come equipped with an external microSD card slot that supports up to 64GB data. Meanwhile, HMD Global will offer this handset with KaiOS operating system. Moreover, the company might also offer a rich app ecosystem in the days ahead along with a few confirmed apps such as Google Maps, Google Assistant, Facebook as well as Twitter.
