Iconic Nokia 8110 slider phone from The Matrix to launch in Thailand this month


Cast your mind back to the time before the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy, before apps and social media, to the days when Nokia mobile phones were all the rage.

One of the most iconic Nokia handsets was the 8110 thanks to its staring role in the hit movie The Matrix, where it was used by Keanu Reeves’ character, Neo.

Fast forward 20 years and HMD Global, the company that now owns the rights to the Nokia brand, is relaunching the 8110 in Thailand later this month.

First unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February, customers in Thailand will get their first opportunity to buy the Nokia 8110 at the Thailand Mobile World Expo which is scheduled to take place in Bangkok on 26-27 May, according to a report in Thai media.

The new Nokia 8810 retains the banana inspired shape of the original but with upgraded hardware and software.

Powered by Kai OS, users will be able to download a small selection of apps including Google Search, Maps, Assistant, Facebook and Twitter. It also comes with an updated version of the classic game Snake.

It is powered by a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 205 processor with 512 MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. It also has a 3.5mm headphone jack, 2.4 inch display and supports 4G LTE.

The 1,500mAh battery can last for 20 days on standby from a single charge or 8 hours of talk time.

The Nokia 8110 will be priced at 2,400 baht, it was reported.

The release of the 8110 follows the relaunch of another iconic mobile phone, the Nokia 3310.
