These two phones. We’ve been waiting for them to arrive to the market for quite a long time already. Back since MWC2018 that happened in February this year, Nokia launched and showed off the Nokia 6 abd the Nokia 8110 already. And finally today is the day that the Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 8110 will be sold nationwide starting today.
Building on the success of its predecessor, the Nokia 6.1 packs even more powerful performance and new features into a more compact, durable body. It is now powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630. Also, now offering enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics, USB-C fast-charging, Nokia spatial audio and pure, and using Android Oreo since it is in the Android One family of devices.
The Nokia 6.1 combines a unibody made from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium with an 11-hour two-tone anodizing and polishing process together with a 2.5D display made from Corning Gorilla Glass. That way, the Nokia 6.1 can be beautiful and durable at the same time.
The Nokia 6.1 is a compact smartphone with a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, and priced at only for RM1,100. It is available in the 4GB RAM/64GB storage and blue-gold color only.

Reloading the legendary Nokia 8110, this 4G feature phone comes complete with the elegantly curved slider design. Giving you the chance to switch off, have fun and relax with the knowledge that all your smartphone essentials are there when you need them.
With a familiar and easy to use interface, the Nokia 8110 features intuitive tactile mechanics, with slide to answer and end calls, as well as an addictive helicopter-style spin on its axis.

It runs on KaiOS, which has an app store so you can enjoy apps like Google Assistant, Google Maps, Google Search, Facebook and Twitter. For more work-related stuff, it also has Outlook and Gmail. Also, it comes with a revamped Snake game.
To power the Nokia 8110, it has a Qualcomm 205 Mobile Platform. With its Wi-Fi connection you can turn your Nokia 8110 into a portable hotspot to share your internet connection with other devices, friends and family. The Nokia 8110’s portable hotspot is capable of supporting up to 10 devices/users simultaneously. Not bad for a banana phone.
