Nostalgia is a funny thing, it plays tricks on you. Nostalgia fills the gaps in your memories to make it seem that what you remember from the past are as good as you think they were, you reminisce. The problem with nostalgia is that sometimes what you remember and what actually happened are two different things.
When Nokia announced the 8110 4G in Barcelona ahead of the Mobile World Congress, the stage was filled with talk about nostalgia for the phone and the Matrix – the cult-classic that made the original 8110 famous.
A year ago, HMD Global had introduced the Nokia 3310 for 2017. This year, the Finnish company is bringing back another icon and it’s the Nokia 8110 with 4G.
HMD Global will be announcing a couple of Nokia smartphones just before Samsung’s Unpacked event. With less than two weeks to go, serial leakster @evleaks has revealed two new Nokia models and one of it appears to be their first Android One smartphone with dual-cameras.
The Nokia 2 just got its specifications leaked via an AnTuTu benchmark listing and the entry-level smartphone also might be the cheapest device to be output by the Finnish company.
Well, the German optical systems manufacturer is coming back to Nokia phones as they’ve just signed an exclusive partnership with HMD Global to “set new imaging standards within the smartphone industry”.
It’s no secret that Nokia‘s back in the smartphone business and the company that has the licence to produce Nokia-branded devices, HMD Global, has made a declaration that will be music to every Android fan’s ears.
Nokia is back and they will be introducing their new smartphones in 2017. The iconic mobile company was acquired by Microsoft in 2014 and eventually the name was taken off from its Lumia smartphone lineup in favour of Microsoft.
Along the way, the parent Nokia company had tried to re-enter the device business by introducing the Nokia N1 tablet. There were rumours that Nokia would eventually introduce a smartphone but that didn’t happen.
