Nokia's blast from the past a hit at Mobile World Congress
PERHAPS the most popular display at Mobile World Congress 2018 belonged to a veteran of mobile phone technology.
Nokia may have launched four new additions to its portfolio of Android smartphones, but the most interest went to a blast from the past.
Complete with a revamped version of Snake, the "reloaded" Nokia 8110 comes with the iconic curved slider design in two vibrant colours, traditional black and the eye-catching banana yellow.
Users can slide to answer and end calls, or get lost in what Nokia describes an "addictive helicopter-style spin on its axis".
The four new additions to Nokia's Android smartphone range include:
Nokia 8 Sirocco
Dual rear sensors with ZEISS optics that combine an ultra-sensitive, wide angle primary camera for impressive low-light performance and a secondary 13MP sensor with 2x optical zoom.
Available in Australia in Black, Nokia 8 Sirocco will go on sale in May and will retail at $1199 at JB Hi-Fi.
Nokia 7 Plus
A 12MP wide-angle primary camera for excellent performance in both low-light and extra bright conditions and a
secondary 13MP camera that delivers 2x optical zoom. Two-day battery life.
