HMD Global, which licenses the Nokia brand, is going for nostalgia again with a fresh take on a once-popular feature phone affectionately known by some as the "banana phone" due to its curved shape.

It'll be powered by Qualcomm's 205 Mobile Platform chipset with 512MB of RAM, and also feature a 2MP rear-facing camera. Apps run on a smart feature OS based on KaiOS, which apparently contains elements of Mozilla's abandoned Firefox OS. This device features a 6-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) IPS LCD display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. It also has a two-megapixel camera with LED flash and a removable 1,500mAh battery. It can be bought in Black and Copper as well as White and Copper colour options.Along with Nokia 7 Plus, The company launched four other devices, the Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 6 (2018), Nokia 1 and the Nokia 8110 Slider with VoLTE at its launch event.

As Nokia no longer makes phones itself, the revamped version will be sold under licence by the Finnish start-up HMD Global. Well, the exact launch date of Nokia 8110 smartphone in India will be announced later on by the company and it is expected that it will launch in India after May.
