Definitely want to have one!
There are plenty of great Nokia handsets to resurrect but this one what an earth are they thinking???
too cheap to even put a 212 SD.wwkwkwk
HMD is like basically milking its worth.
even a 3110 retro aint go nowhere above 225 aside frame model and shiny glossy paint job
then what u expect from this one
I think its really time to go back to basics. The current smartphone lineups are supposed to make life easier and less complicated, but in reality, they have made life more complicated, by making consumers worry more about the battery life, the damages caused, the cost of repairs and so on. so Nokia's approach of having the most used apps on simple form factors is the way to go!
I declare the official name for "yellow 8110" as banana phone. from now on you all shall mention it as banana phone.
Currently using a moto razr v3i (yes you read it right, and yes we are in 2018). Frankly speaking I have one moto x4 as well (obviously you require one smartphone) but i love to carry RAZR V3i around because....
1) lets accept the fact that we humans like it when people around us appreciate us for being different as this makes them think that you are cool.
2) The moment you open the flap and put it on your cheek it feels like a device rather than a glass slab put against you face.
3) That awesome feeling when you cut a call and close the flap to hear this "punchy clack" sound... I don't know it just makes you feel more confident and good.
moto x4 has a very flashy exterior with lots of gloss and reflections all around and people usually ask me about my phone due to some S shaped reflections that run around the phone's glass body but.... when RAZR V3i is kept around it steals the thunder of this flashy phone and people usually pick and ask me from where did you get this. They are shocked to know when i say it s 15 years old device.
The point is this nokia phone can do wonders same way If they put it at right price and brand it real well.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2018Jio phone is subsidised. This is not. Stop being a beggar. And those are european prices.Being beggar is much better than a Stupid. If they launch this in India at 5000INR what will you call this?? Cheap?
If HMD can use a foldable display and remake the N93 form factor, that would be pretty cool. But the remake I really want to see is N8. I loved the iPod mini-like materials they used it and it had Xenon flash. That and the N9. Would love a N9 remake which can dual boot Sailfish and Android. Tired of all the giant phablet slabs. Nokia had some brilliant concepts a decade ago.

I'll buy this phone in a heartbeat for the sake of pure nostalgia of the good old days when only adults permitted to own a cellphone. Oh, and for the most stylish, banana-shaped WiFi hotspot on the market for my laptop and my smartphone as well.

Android needs a light version with specifically designed UI elements to run on low res and non touch screens.
For a light OS, SnapDragon 205 coupled with 1GB ram could do pretty amazing stuff.
Just check the Windows 10 running Lumia 650, running on SnapDragon 210, it's pretty decent, while servicing a mj h higher-end screen and performing heavier tasks.
Thinking of it, Windows 10 would have been cool on such a phone if it wasn't dying already... a little too late I guess.

Check your facts again.
They should launch the qwerty or slide phone with android go. This phone is for blind nokia fans club.

Okay I say pure crap but I have an Android phone, obviously, as Android is the only choice for customization, and I pretty like Android's customization. I have a lot of scripts running on my phone, to send text messages, reply to Facebook comments, etc. Running Linux (Android) on a mobile phone is great, and it is better than Symbian because of this.
Why I say Android is crap because it is to power hungry. As you said, Symbian could multitask on mono-core 200MHz CPUs of 20 years ago. This is impossible on Android because of the absence of optimization. Android is so much not optimized, this is incredible. You need quad-core CPU at 3Ghz and a powerful GPU to switch between Facebook and WhatsApp. This is crazy.
What I would like: Symbian to come back from dead, and be Open Source like Android so the customization level will be as good as Android, and not use stupid Java virtual machine to run apps like Android. Symbian was running native code. Google is so dumb they really don't optimize their OS. They are very lazy and stupid and lack experience in the mobile world, and they don't make any effort. For example even in latest Android there is still no theme (theming was available on Symbian far long ago).
Themes is a simple solution to have a more optimized OS because OEMs will not need to make crappy launchers to make the OS at their taste.
Because of all this lag of Android, I am sure if someone have the money and a good marketing strategy they could easily eject Android from the market. Google have a lot of money so they can force their crappy OS. But money isn't everything.
