MWC 2018: HMD Global Unveils Nokia 1 Android Go Smartphone at $85

In a similar vain to the Nokia 3310, the new Nokia 8110 is similar in design to the original, yet tweaked so it's also quite different.

Chief Executive Florian Seiche said HMD has sold around 30 million phones after introducing 11 new phone models over the past year. These apps, along with Facebook and Twitter, will be integrated into the smartphone after an upcoming update.

This has happened for all Nokia phones (except the Nokia 6 2018 which jumped directly to a stable version of Oreo), where a beta version is rolled out first for testing purposes before the stable version comes out a few weeks later.

Expanding its portfolio, HMD Global - the manufacturer of Nokia phones has unveiled five new devices - Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 6 (new variant), Nokia 1 and a revamped Nokia 8110 at the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2018 (MWC) event here. The 1990s throwback model comes in two color choices, classic black or banana yellow, a play on how its keyboard slid out, inspiring the nickname "banana phone". The display is QVGA display and it comes with a resolution of 240×320 pixels.

Internally, the phone features 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage, and while some sites claim it uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 205, there seems to be some confusion over the type of CPU in the 8110 4G. This OS is powered by Kai OS. The phone also features Pro camera, which allows you full control over advanced settings. It's a neat callback to Nokia's old days, but not one that will be as highly recognised as, say, the reinvented Nokia 3110 and 8110 4G. The internal storage of the phone is 4GG.

The battery capacity of 1200 mA * h provides within 48 hours of music listening (and up to 9 hours in talk mode). With the price of 749 euro or around Rs 60,000 a unit, Nokia 8 Sirocco comes with 5.5-inch display built with 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5, dual rear sensors with ZEISS optics and a secondary 13MP sensor with 2 times optical zoom.
