Nokia Bringing Back Neo's Banana Phone from THE MATRIX

Mar 02, 2018, 02:14

In 1996 the original Nokia 8110 slider "banana" phone was released; three years later it hit the big time in the hand Keanu Reeves in The Matrix. Just like Nokia 8, the phone also comes loaded with bothie feature. This new model however has 4G coverage support and has a new OS that allows for app downloads. "Think of us as distant cousins, not siblings nor children", stated the KaiOS website. The Nokia phone bears a 4.5-inch IPS display which also offers a screen resolution of about 640 x 480 pixels.

Nokia has two target audiences in mind for the Nokia 8110, based on the tremendous response it received for the Nokia 3310. On the MWC 2018, the company announced the rebooted Nokia 8110 phone which become famous by the 1999 movie, The Matrix. However, given the industry's penchant for glass and metal covers it's probably safe to assume that the Nokia 1 will be the only smartphone to sport the covers, at least for now.

Nokia 8110, for those who don't know, was a slide-out phone, which was then a high-end device with a monochrome LCD and fetched a hefty price of $1,000. Nokia's new phone also comes with wireless charging, and the phone doesn't overheat since it has a glass body, with a stainless steel frame.

As well as the nostalgic return of the 8810 4G, Nokia has also announced the release of the Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus, new Nokia 6 and Nokia 1 handsets.

The Nokia 7 Plus features a Snapdragon 660 processor with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and what HMD claims is 2 days of battery use with average use.

The Nokia 8110 4G will be available in May for 79 euros ($97).

The phone also has 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage and some basic things like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, Global Positioning System and a microUSB port. HMD Global did say that it comes preloaded with an updated version of the Snake game, and it will support a very few popular apps like Facebook, Google Assistant and Twitter.
