HMD brings back the banana phone, launches a Nokia 8810 4G

HMD is the magician behind the Nokia brand now, and they have performed quite the number of interesting tricks already. At MWC last year, they resurrected the Nokia 3310 with a design that appealed to long-time fans and the market. This year, they have brought back the nostalgic feeling of holding another old model. In other news, the Nokia 8810 has now been reborn, and it is better.

HMD has stayed true to form, ensuring the unit bears a resemblance to the 1999 model. The banana shape has not been done away with, and the slide form factor still remains a taste to love. What changed the most though are the things under the hood.

Raising the covers, one will find out that the Nokia 8810 4G (that’s the new name, people) has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 205 chipset at its heart, works on 512MB of RAM and keeps your things on a 4GB space.

That internal storage space will still have to be shared between preinstalled apps and yours. A 2.4-inch screen is on the front with HMD opting for one of the popular Nokia resolutions – 320 x 240. You won’t be able to take selfies on the new Nokia 8810, but a 2MP camera on the back handles image shooting affairs.

Of course, this will not be an everyday device. Especially not for the heavy (and even midrange) user. What it will most likely be is a feature phone you can use to draw attention to yourself. Talking of usefulness, the same device can also serve as a backup unit or vacation phone.

In the case you loved the 1999 model and would love to feel that way again, that is yet another reason to whip out your wallets for the banana phone.
