HMD Global, the manufacturer of Nokia phones, has unveiled five new devices at the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2018 (MWC) in Barcelona.

The phones unveiled are Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 6 (new variant), Nokia 1 and a revamped Nokia 8110.

Nokia 8110, the retro model phone comes with a slightly curved body and a slider that lets you answer and end calls.

First released in 1996, the Nokia 8110 was often referred to as the “banana phone” due to its distinctive curved shape.

The phone became popular after Keanu Reeves’ character Neo used it in the 1999 movie “The Matrix.”

The company has decided to roll out the phones in black and banana yellow versions.

The new version comes with 4G connectivity and apps, including Google Assistant, Google Maps, Google Search, Facebook and Twitter.

The three new Android smartphones—Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus and the new Nokia 6—will offer high quality software experience designed by tech giant Google.

Nokia has also entered into the ultra-affordable smartphone segment with the announcement of the Android Oreo Go edition-based Nokia 1.
