HMD Global, the new owners of the Nokia brand, has recently unveiled a slew of new Android phones at MWC 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. A lot of heads were turned to its newest flagship, the Nokia 7. Compared to previous models, they have since updated it to meet the current demands and expectations of the market, including:
– Dual rear sensors with ZEISS optics and a 12MP wide-angle primary camera
– 6-inch 18:9 Full HD+ resolution, slim bevels
– Powerful 3800 mAh battery.
In fact, they’re also using the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, the most powerful processor in the 600-tier while still being incredibly power efficient. Indeed HMD Global upped the ante by bring the Nokia brand we all love and reminisnce up to tech. However, there’s one piece of device that I really want to talk about.
At least, the yellow one looks like a banana phone. The black one, however, looks like a matrix phone. It’s like Nokia reached out to our inner nostalgia and gave us phones we’ve always wanted as kids, but could never really afford at the time.
This new-old phone is the Nokia 8110. An updated throwback phone with 4G capabilities, app store for the modern Android phone, and Qualcomm 205 Mobile Platform. And most importantly, it has the revamped Snake game that we all loved and loved to hate.
All in all, Nokia is ticking all boxes. Updated, high-tech, and classic smartphones, and meme phones for the rest of us losers. Make Nokia great again!
