HMD Global re-launched the almost two-decade-old Nokia Banana phone with a new design and upgraded internal hardware, software earlier this year at Mobile World Congress 2018. Months later, that is in the second week of October, HMD finally decided to bring the Nokia 8110 4G to India. The company launched the Nokia 8810 4G Banana phone in India alongside the Nokia 3.1 Plus on October 11. Today is the first time that the Nokia 8810 4G phone will go on sale in the country across offline stores and Nokia’s online shop. It’s priced at Rs 5,999.
Nokia 8810 4G: Price in India and Availability
The 4G enabled feature phone from Nokia will be available for purchase across both offline and online Nokia retail partner stores. It will also be available on Nokia’s own online store. HMD has also partnered with Reliance Jio to offer up to 544GB free 4G data to the consumers. The company, however, is yet to announce the exact details regarding the offer.
At Rs 5,999, with the Nokia 8110 4G Banana phone, HMD will definitely look forward to compete with other phones in the same price segment like the Redmi 6A, Infinix Smart 2 and others. But, not to forget Nokia 8810 is a 4G feature phone, while the Redmi 6 is a smartphone. In India, the Nokia 8810 4G Banana phone will be available in two colours including Banana Yellow and Traditional Black.
Nokia 8110 4G: Specifications and Features
Even though the Nokia 8810 4G is a feature phone, it comes with a lot of features found in our present day smartphones. It runs Smart Feature OS based on KaiOS and comes pre-loaded with the nostalgic Snake game. As far as the specifications are concerned, the Nokia 8810 4G comes packed with a 2.4-inch QVGA display.
The 4G feature phone is powered by a 1.1GHz dual-core Qualcomm 205 SoC paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. Unlike the previous generation Banana phone, the new Nokia 8810 4G feature phone comes with cameras. It sports a 2-megapixel camera on the rear panel. Sadly, there’s no selfie camera on the Banana phone. The feature phone is backed by a 1500mAh battery which HMD claims can deliver up to 25 hours of standby time and 9.32 hours of talk time on VoLTE.
The Nokia 8810 4G phone comes with several connectivity options like 4G VoLTE with hotspot, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS/ A-GPS, FM radio, a Micro-USB port. The phone also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and IP52 drip protection.
