HMD Global seems to be on its way to gain even more market share in the feature phone segment, with the company having recently launched the Nokia 110 4G in India. This phone was first launched alongside the Nokia 105 4G in the European market.
For those of you wondering, this specific feature phone is the upgraded version of the Nokia 110 that was launched in 2019, sporting support for just 2G connectivity.
This upgrade comes at a time when 2G is being phased out and, keeping this in mind, Nokia is boasting of 4G LTE connectivity in this new feature phone.
The Nokia 110 4G is not the first device to have 4G support, as the Nokia 105 4G and the title Magic 2 4G, backed by Transsion Holding also featured 4G LTE support.
