HMD is bringing the Nokia 8110 back

HMD is bringing the Nokia 8110 back

Yes, the new Nokia 8 Sirroco edition is officially announced at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, Spain by HMD Global.

The dual-SIM (Micro+Nano) Nokia 8110 4G offering, and runs on a Smart Feature OS powered by Kai OS.

There's also 64GB of storage and a microSD card slot for adding more if you need it.

The Nokia 8110 4G also has a 2.4-inch QVGA display and a 2-megapixel rear camera. Run by Android Oreo 8.0, the phone has been priced at €749 and goes on sale in April 2018.

HMD Global, the Finnish manufacturer producing Nokia phones today, said the phone is expected to launch worldwide in May, with a global average retail price of 79 euros. The new smartphone comes with 6GB of RAM and slightly curved edges. Being the successor of Nokia 8, some of the specifications of the smartphone remains the same but there are many things apart from a refreshed design that will make this phone stand out in the crowd. Incidentally, if you've been a Nokia user for long enough, it's worth mentioning that the Nokia 1 has Express-On covers.

Democrats failing to endorse Dianne Feinstein gives progressive push
On Saturday, de León said, "The days of Democrats biding our time, biting our tongue, and triangulating at the margins are over". California Democrats shocked Senator Dianne Feinstein by not endorsing her for re-election at their state convention Sunday.

Nokia boasts that the Sirocco's stainless steel frame is 2.5 times stronger than 6000 series aluminium, and the display is reinforced by 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 to prevent scratches.

Early mobile pioneer Nokia inundated us with five new phones, the most notable of which was a rehash of the 8810: the iconic slider phone you may recognise from The Matrix in 1999. By launching Nokia 8, it enters the market competition of making smartphones displays having no-bezel or minimum bezel space. The phone also features the 3D surround sound capture that was seen in last year's Nokia 8 and enables recording 360-degree spatial audio. There is also a much larger 3,260mAh battery and wireless charging support. The box will come with a USB-C to 3.5 mm headset adapter as well.

This might not be the quickest phone on the block, then, but Nokia is promising that battery life will be decent. They're all part of Google's "pure and secure" Android One program. But before you get excited, this is a feature phone - not a smartphone.

The front facing 16Mp camera has adaptive sensor technology and can combine four pixels together to create a "super pixel", according to the firm.
