Even with the plethora of smartphones being churned out daily, the feature phone segment is still doing well. In markets like Nigeria, India, and China, a large percentage of the phones sold annually are feature phones. So it is no surprise that HMD Global keeps reintroducing some of Nokia’s old classic feature phones. This year it announced the Nokia 8110 4G, a modern variant of 1996’s Nokia 8110.
The Nokia 8110 4G is already available in some markets across the globe. If you live in China and you have been waiting for it to be announced, there is a chance it will be happening soon as the device has been spotted on TENAA’s website.
The Nokia 8110 4G has a 2.4-inch screen with a 240 x 320 resolution. It is powered by a 1.1GHz Qualcomm 205 processor paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. It even has a 2MP camera with LED flash.
The phone runs KaiOS and lets you sync your contacts via Gmail and Outlook. You can also use it as a portable hotspot for your other devices. It has dual SIM support, a MicroSD card slot for up to 64GB of extra storage, FM Radio, a 3.5mm audio jack, GPS, and Bluetooth 4.1.
Powering the Nokia 8110 4G is a removable 1500mAh battery which should last up to 25 days on standby for the single SIM version and about 18 days for the dual-SIM model.
When it launches in China, it will be available in Black and Yellow with that curved design that earned it the Banana Phone nickname and slide-to-answer keypad cover.
