The 'Matrix phone' is back: Nokia 8110 retro reboot coming in May


The OS has been optimized for devices with 1GB RAM or less. A 3260 mAh battery completes the package.

The Nokia 7 Plus is an updated version of the Nokia 7 - which was launched previous year in China and never saw a global release.

The rise of AI in digital assistants will also be a noticeable theme throughout the event, as several large-scale telecom providers, such as Orange, Deutsche Telekom and Telefonica are set to launch their own versions of the two-way speaking devices during the show, according to market research firm Ovum.

As rumored, the Nokia 1 is meant for first-time smartphone users, says HMD. It comes with a 4.5-inch IPS display with FWVGA (854 x 480 pixels) resolution. Both skeptics and devout Nokia fans were waiting with baited breath - would it be the awesome device Nokia promises it to be, or would it be just another midrange Android flop? The device measures 133.6 x 67.78 x 9.5 mm and weighs 131 grams. The latest lineup includes Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus, new Nokia 6 and Nokia 1.

Internally, the Nokia 8 Sirocco rock 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The front camera consists of a large 16MP snapper with F2.0 lens.

The Android 8 Oreo operating system ran smoothly during our time with the phone and we didn't experience any performance blemishes - although that could change once it's filled with apps, games, videos, photos and music.

In the hand it looks and feels great, like a proper premium smartphone, although the glass rear offers little in the way of grip.

Next up is the Nokia 7 Plus. Nokia 7 Plus including all new Nokia 3 and above devices will come with Android One for the global variants. The Nokia 7 Plus' dual rear camera setup comprises a 12-megapixel wide-angle primary camera with an f/1.75 aperture, and a 13-megapixel camera with an f/2.6 aperture and 2x optical zoom. The phone is on the upper side of the midrange scale and rocks an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, capable of reaching 2.2 GHz clock speeds.

The Nokia brand has a long standing history with Zeiss Optics which has been tuning its phone cameras for decades. A 3,000 mAh battery keeps things running.

"Today, we are delighted to announce the expansion of our range with the introduction of five new devices, setting new benchmarks in smartphone design with Nokia 8 Sirocco and delivering our most accessible smartphone to date in Nokia 1", said Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, said. While the key specifications remain same as on the last year's Nokia 8, the new Nokia 8 Sirocco comes with a refreshed design. It measures just 2mm thin at the edge and it combines a curved edge-to-edge pOLED 2K 5.5-inch display with smaller bezels and moulded body curves to create an ultra-compact profile. Android GO edition is a light version of Android that is built specifically for devices with less than 1 gigs of RAM and also includes apps that are built to use less resources such as memory and even data.
