Nokia brings back banana phone from 'The Matrix'

Nokia 7 Plus render

HMD Global - the official licensee for Nokia brand of phones - announced five new phones at a pre-MWC event on Sunday in Barcelona, Spain.

As was the case previous year with the relaunched Nokia 3310, the new version of the 8110 is a modern take on the phone, yet it's still instantly recognisable as an 8110.

The 2.4-inch QVGA display screen is a bit small for the usual tasks one does on big screen smartphones.

The glass is bolstered by a stainless steel frame and certainly feels very rugged as a result.

The new Nokia 6 is powered by a Snapdragon 630 mobile processor, which is a huge boost from the Snapdragon 430 from the Nokia 6 a year age. It comes with 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM. As for the inside, CNet noted that the device will run on the Snapdragon 660 chipset from Qualcomm, with 4 GB of memory and 64 GB of internal storage.

The Nokia 8110 4G will be available in May for 79 euros ($97). That's because, like the other new phones, it's part of the Android One program.

The Nokia 7 Plus will feature a dual 12 and 13 megapixel camera with Zeiss optics lens and will be fitted with a 3800 mAh battery which Nokia boasts will offer 2 days of battery life. The camera is also supplemented by AI for enhancing selfies and adding fun effects to the Bothies.

Nokia used to be famous for its smartphone cameras. As you get a dual-camera setup at the rear with Zeiss technology. Speaking of selfies, the front-facing camera in the Nokia 7 Plus is a 16 MP shooter optimized for low-light conditions. "Today, we continue to maintain our promise of making sure there is a Nokia phone to satisfy every price point and every segment of the market", he said. The phone can connect to Wi-Fi and 4G network. HMD has given the device Xpress on covers, which allows you to replace the back cover as per your taste. The smartphone has an IP52 rating for dust and water resistance. While we've been hearing about the Nokia 7 Plus for quite sometime, the MWC announcement reaffirms the information we've seen thus far with a few extra niceties.

This is the certainly highest-end Android One device on the market.

The company also relaunched another icon for the second year in a row, the 8110 sliding smartphone, but this time with 4G.
