Features of the Nokia 8110 4G
The Nokia 8110 4G is nicknamed the “banana” phone because of its curved design. It has a curved protective cover which you can slide open to answer calls. The cover is also used to end calls by sliding it back. On the top of the phone is a microUSB socket for charging and a headphone socket.
The screen of the Nokia 8110 4G is a curved 2.4” screen. It has a colourful display, but it’s low-resolution and the screen is not a touchscreen.
Platform & Slots
The phone runs on KaiOS. This OS is seen as the middle point of a dumbphone and a smartphone, so it’s somehow a hybrid. It comes with a RAM of 512MB.
You can use two SIM cards on this phone, plus, there is a microSD slot for expanding the limited 4GB storage capacity. You can supplement the storage up to 32GB via a microSD card.
Google Assistant, YouTube, Google Maps, email, and browser work on this phone. The first version didn’t have support for WhatsApp, but the upgraded Nokia 8110 4G now has WhatsApp.
The Nokia 8110 4g is powered by a removable 1500 mAh battery. The battery life is about 5 days if used heavily. According to HMD Global, the Nokia 8110 4G can stay on 4G standby for 25 days.
There is only one camera on the phone — at the rear side. No selfie camera. The camera is 2MP with LED flash.
