Nokia 8110 4G


The era of cell phone start with feature phones. Feature phones is the initial stage of our smartphone of nowadays. But do we require those feature phones in today's era of smartphones? Actually it depends on personal preference. Nokia at MWC 2018 launched a new feature phone known as Nokia 8110 4G. It is a rebuilt version of Nokia 8119 which was launched back in 1996. This is a slider type phone in the shale of a banana. The interesting thing is that it runs on KaiOS which also powers the Jio phone launched last year.

Nokia 1


We already knew that Google would launch a smartphone with Android Oreo (Go edition) OS at MWC 2018 and that smartphone is this Nokia 1.
