Nokia 8110 4G Feature Phone – Details, Price and Availability

Nokia 8110 4G

HMD Global has recreated yet another legendary Nokia phone. This time comes the Nokia 8110. The phone is primarily aimed at Nokia fans and the people who want to have a phone that stands out.

Nokia 8110 4G features a similar slide mechanism as the original. It not only protects the display, but also offers the ability to pick up and hand up calls. It also comes equipped with features which are important, such as – WiFi Hotspot and App store. The phone will be available in single and dual SIM configurations.

Nokia 8110 4G Specifications & Price

    • 2.4” curved display
    • 2MP camera with LED flash
    • Qualcomm 205 processor
    • 512 MB RAM and 4GB Storage
    • KaiOS
    • Black and yellow (Banana Yellow 🙃)
    • Price – €79; available in May 2018

That’s all HMD Global presented on stage on 25th February. What do you think of the devices? I like the Nokia 7 Plus, however, the pricing might not be very well thought of. The Nokia 8 Sirocco does overcome a lot of things that Nokia 8 missed. The pricing is again very premium and many might not find it meaningful in this world of competition.
