After a long wait, HMD Global, the Nokia phone brand licensee, has unveiled the Nokia 8110 4G ‘Banana’ phone in India, alongside the Nokia 3.1 Plus.
Launched initially at the company’s event at Mobile World Congress this year, this feature phone is a modern take on the original Nokia 8110 and features the same legendary slider mechanism.
Meant to be seen as a companion handset, the Nokia 8110 4G runs KaiOS that is also present on the Jio Phone.
Users can now access WhatsApp, YouTube, and a few other Google apps on KaiOS. Interestingly, the phone comes with a revamped Snake game. It comes with “slide to answer” and “slide to cancel” functionality.
