Nokia Banana Phone-The Iconic 8110 4G

Behold the legendary Nokia Banana Phone or more appropriately Nokia 8110 4G which is the successor to the ancient Nokia 8110. Launched earlier in February 2018, this Nokia Banana Phone (*giggles* sorry I can't help it) comes with a relatively small 2.45-inch QVGA display with a resolution of 240 pixels by 320 pixels. Though it is not ideally big, I am sure a lot will love to have this phone as a secondary device or purely for calling purposes since it has nostalgic value to it. :D

 The Legendary Banana Phone-Nokia 8110 4G

Powered by 1.1GHz dual-core processor with 512MB of RAM, Nokia 8110 4G is packed with 4GB of internal storage that *gasp* cannot be expanded. So no MicroSD card here for you to store anything extra. That's a bummer! If you are thinking of taking photos with this Nokia phone, you might be a little bit disappointed that it only has a 2MP primary camera with LED flash. Guess this is really a phone which is stuck in the past. LOL

OMG...the look so identical. LOL :D

In the battery department, Nokia 8110 4G is being juiced by a 1500mAh removable battery which canlast longer due to the smaller screen form factor and slower processor. It has a reported 25-day standby time which I believe is huge for this phone to be a secondary device. Measuring 133.45x47.30x14.90. this Banana Phone tips the scale at 117 grams. It runs on Smart Feature OS based on KaiOS and allow users to have access to apps such as Google Maps, Google Assistant, Google Search and heck Nokia even throw in a Snake Game for your enjoyment as well.

You can choose either the Black or Yellow banana. :p

Nokia 8110 4G supports 4G VoLTE with hotspot functionality and is based on slider form factor which gives its slightly curved banana shape. Other connectivities options available include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB, FM radio, and a 3.5mm headphone jack (something that iPhones are lacking). Available in Traditional Black and Banana Yellow colours, Nokia 8110 4G can be yours for approximately US$100 (RM400). Are you ready for a retro Banana Phone? It is iconic and can even be brandished as a fashion statement. :)
