The original Nokia 8110 became popularly called the Matrix Phone because it was featured in the 1999 blockbuster movie, The Matrix, starring Keanu Reeves as Neo. Here are details and pictures of the new Nokia 8110 4G edition.
The original Nokia 8110 was a high-end phone with a slider form factor in the shape of a banana. It was released in 1996. I realise that some of our readers were not born then or are not old enough to know this phone, so a little introduction is in order. Here is what it looked like:
The 8110 was a feature phone, but a very expensive one, as it was designed for business users. Back then, sliders were uber cool. The phone’s slider covered a traditional alpha-numeric keypad.
Similar to how the Nokia 3310 was resurrected, HMD Global has brought back the Nokia 8110 to the future. Say hello to Nokia 8100 2018 Edition.
