Nokia resurrected the cult "banana" 8110
The Nokia 8110 phone of the 1997 model is known to everyone who watched the iconic blockbuster The Matrix - it was precisely the main character who performed it by Keanu Reeves. True, in the movie there was a button on the back of the phone, when pressed, the keyboard cover was clicked off effectively, but in reality it had to be manually shifted.
Nevertheless, the device turned out to be more than popular and some even wrote petitions to Nokia with a demand to resume its production. Thanks to the curved shape of the body, the Nokia 8110 is known as the Banana. It seems that the Finns seriously took up the release of various remakes of the most famous phones of the past, because after the 3110 model, the new version 8110 debuted at the MWC exhibition.
The new “Banana” has retained the main feature of its predecessor - a cover that closes the buttons when not in use. Using the slider, however, you can also answer calls and end a conversation. The phone is equipped with a 2.4-inch screen with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels and runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 205 processor with two 32-bit Cortex-A7 cores, a clock frequency of 1.1 gigahertz and an Adreno 304 graphics controller.
The camera has a resolution of two megapixels, the battery has a capacity of 1500 mAh, and one charge should be enough for nine hours of conversation or 48 hours of listening to music through headphones. The phone will have Google and Snake apps installed. Sales of Nokia 8110 in yellow and black will start in May this year, and the cost of the new “Banana” will be 79 euros.
