  • Nokia 8 Sirocco

After announcing the relaunch of the classic Nokia 3310 cellphone previous year, the Finnish electronics company has revealed its bringing back another iconic design, the curved 8810.

By shipping with Android Oreo out of the box, users can enjoy the latest features, including Picture-in-Picture for multitasking, Android Instant Apps to discover and run apps with minimal friction, 60 new emojis and battery-maximising features like limiting background app use. "Think of us as distant cousins, not siblings nor children", stated the KaiOS website.

The device includes features like slide to answer and disconnect phones.

Nokia has two target audiences in mind for the Nokia 8110, based on the tremendous response it received for the Nokia 3310. However, this feature is limited to Nokia Android smartphones with Zeiss optics. The phone was launched in 1996 and later made famous by Keanu Reeves' character in the 1999 action flick The Matrix.

Now, in terms of specs, the Nokia 7 Plus is a mid-range smartphone, but quite a compelling mid-range phone.

The dual-SIM (Micro+Nano) Nokia 8110 4G offering, and runs on a Smart Feature OS powered by Kai OS.


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. Its appearance also evokes an image of a basic device 4.5-inch display (854 x 480) and a 5-megapixel camera. The phone also comes with revamped Snake Game. HMD said there will be access to an app store, but it doesn't sound like there will be very many apps available for this phone.

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.

HMD Global has also offered 128GB of inbuilt storage on the Nokia 8 Sirocco which can see but will not to be expandable via microSD card.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco comes with ZEISS optics in a dual-camera setup, 12-megapixel wide + 13-megapixel Tele configuration for the best experience, along with dual-tone flash and display flash.

This might not be the quickest phone on the block, then, but Nokia is promising that battery life will be decent.
