Nokia announces Nokia Pro camera app for devices with Carl Zeiss optics

Nokia is bringing back the Nokia 8110 feature phone, or popularly known as the "Banana Phone".

Yes, the new Nokia 8 Sirroco edition is officially announced at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, Spain by HMD Global. It runs on the Smart feature OS powered by KaiOS. Few things that remain unchanged from the previous model, is the 5.5 inch polarized Full HD display, 3or 4GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB of onboard storage all housed in a bode built out of a single 600 series Aluminum block.

The Nokia 8110 4G price has been set at Euro 79 (roughly Rs. 6,300), excluding taxes and subsidies, what HMD Global is calling the global average retail price.

HMD's strategy is to use distribution partnerships with 600 top mobile operators and retailers in selected markets around the world to offer reliable, affordable products with the latest innovations, plus monthly Google security updates on all phones.

Its iconic curved slider, which covers all of the 8810's hardware buttons is, naturally, one of its key features and biggest selling points.

It's been announced that the Nokia 8110 - made famous by The Matrix - is making a comeback.

The battery capacity of 1200 mA * h provides within 48 hours of music listening (and up to 9 hours in talk mode).

Just past year, HMD, the new steward of the Nokia brand, launched a modernised Nokia 3310.

The Nokia 8810 4G phone has a 2.4-inch QVGA display. In doing so, the news comes down that The Nokia 8110 Is Back. It even manages a 2x optical zoom something we've been yet to see otherwise on many camera phones. Connectivity options will include: 802.11 b/g/n, GPS/AGPS, Bluetooth 4.2, Micro USB 2.0, 3.5mm AV jack, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor and g-sensor. To modernise the phone, its new buttons are a little more flush with the device, but it'll retain the same slide-out form factor. A 16-megapixel fixed focus sensor with a f/2.0 aperture, 1um pixels, and Zeiss optics takes care of selfies. The battery of the phone is 1500mAh.

HMD is Google's largest Android One program partner and it reflects in the Nokia 7 Plus's software. It comes in 128GB in-built storage, which can be further expanded upto 256GB.

Elsewhere, the phone is equipped with a centrally positioned fingerprint reader that lives on rear panel, it runs Android 8.0 Oreo and has all the rest of the gear you'd expect of a modern smartphone, including NFC, so you'll be able to use the phone to pay for goods at contactless terminals via Android Pay.
