Nokia has finally revealed the new version of its curved Nokia 8110 mobile phone that was first released in 1996 and featured in the film, “The Matrix. ”
The phone which was launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain is offered in banana yellow and black colours and comes loaded with a new version of the game, Snake. Nokia says the Nokia 8110 would not just be complete without Snake, but more games and applications would be developed soon.
This beautiful 4G device runs a proprietary software Nokia calls Smart Feature operating system. It has access to a few services through proprietary applications, like Gmail, Outlook and Facebook.
The new Nokia 8110 may not have a spring-loaded slider like the modified versions of its predecessor, the revamped 8110 is like the original. The newer Nokia 8110 is curved to fit the shape of the face and a snap cover that is used to unlock the phone or answer calls while the phone also combines the durability of a feature phone with the latest software experience.
Though the Nokia 8110 doesn’t have a flashy operating system and users won’t be able to download other popular applications, the basic features are appealing because of their reliability. They can also run for a long time on a single charge as the Nokia 8110 goes 25 days in standby mode.
Nokia says in a press statement that the revolutionary curved design fits the natural shape of one’s face and it fits into any pocket. The snap cover can be used to unlock the phone or answer calls.
The legendary phone maker Nokia aims to return to be a mobile market leader with the original Nokia 8110 as the first of its kind in terms of its functional design.
