The Nokia 8110 is back: HMD Global goes retro again

"Of course, still a very large number is on feature phones, but the momentum on smartphones is really great", Seiche said. Nokia has also introduced a new imaging suite that is powered by AI to bring Snapchat-like masks, animated characters, and much more.

Nokia has moved away from the design language that ties together its current range of devices, with the nearly all-glass body of the Sirocco oozing premium appeal and futuristic looks.

The phone comes with a 5.5-inch 2.5D display with "damage-resistant" Corning Gorilla Glass on top.

On the back of the Nokia 7 Plus there's a new dual camera system with a 12MP main camera with large 1.4um pixels and a bright f/1.75 lens and a second 12MP 2x telephoto camera with a 1.0um pixel pitch and a f/2.6 lens. Given that it's an Android One device, there is no bloatware on the phone as well as no custom user interface from the company.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco will be available starting April and will retail at a price of 749 Euros.

The Nokia 7 Plus will be available in April for around $450.

Nokia 7 Plus

The new Nokia 7 Plus features a 6-inch screen along with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and comes in an aluminum unibody. HMD Global has designed the phone with removable back covers that are available in Azure, Grey, Yellow, and Pink color options, apart from the standard Dark Blue and Warm Red colors the phone will be available in. The original that inspired it cost 10 times more in the 1990s, when it was one of Nokia's top-of-the-line models. Nokia 7 Plus powers with Qualcomm Snapdragon 660. Now this year at Barcelona, Nokia is expected to launch Nokia 3310 (4G) which is an upgrade over its previous version. The phone was originally made available in the Chinese market earlier this year. The Nokia 1 ships with a 5-inch HD display and it comes with swappable backs as part of the company's Xpress-On trademark filing. The highlight of the affordable smartphone is that it runs Android Oreo (Go Edition).

There are reports that India will get Nokia 1, Nokia 9 April onwards. Of course, the body is made out of polycarbonate which is created to be durable.

The Nokia 7 Plus is machined from a single block of Series 600 aluminium with copper accents around the camera and the frame.

The update to Oreo has been a long time coming for the Nokia 3, with rumors suggesting that it would land in late 2017. The new Nokia 6 will go on sale in early April for a price of Euro 279 (or approx Rs 22,196). First launched in 1998, it now returns more than 20 years later with the name 8110. Hidden underneath that iconic curved design, the 8110 is packing modern necessities, like 4G.

And yes, before you ask, it comes with a revamped version of Snake. The price should be somewhere around $300, making it highly competitive as a mid-tier device.

There have been at least two images of the rumored Nokia 9 case that surfaced on the internet for the past few weeks. Tell us everything in the comments!
