HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, relaunched the legendary Nokia 8110 feature phone earlier this year, reloaded with 4G capabilities. The phone comes complete with the iconic curved slider design, giving users the chance to switch off, have fun and relax with the knowledge that all their smartphone essentials are there when you need them. The phone also features a Qualcomm® 205 mobile platform, which is optimised to bring performance without compromising on battery life, bringing up to 25 days of standby time from a single charge (in testing done in lab conditions with no background apps running).
Gayan Wijethilaka, Sri Lanka Head of Marketing of HMD said “Sri Lanka has a cell phone penetration of over 120 percent, with a large population having more than one phone/sim. We are seeing a trend where people using two phones, opting for a feature phone as their second phone or their primary phone for voice and text. The long battery life of feature phones is a key factor as users opt for undisrupted voice and text service. The original Nokia 8110 was one of the best-selling phones of all time and we are seeing a resurgence of interest from previous users and an entirely new generation of users who love the sleek, simplicity of the phone.”
The Nokia 8110, with its familiar and easy to use interface, features intuitive tactile mechanics, with slide to answer and end calls, as well as an addictive helicopter style spin on its axis. Nokia 8110 comes with the craftsmanship you expect from a Nokia phone, delivering durability and reliability as standard. Nokia 8110 delivers crystal-clear VoLTE calling and is perfect for anyone who wants an iconic 4G feature phone or a companion phone.
