HMD Global, the Finnish company that makes Nokia-branded phones, came to Mobile World Congress with a new take on a retro phone.

Similar to what it did with the Nokia 3310 from last year, HMD Global has refreshed the classic 8110 with a new 4G-capable model. The phone was made popular by the original Matrix movie.

Like the original, the banana-shaped 8110 4G comes with a numeric keypad. Further, the phone adds features like Google Assistant, Google Maps other preloaded apps. It also adds an LTE modem to the mix.

The phone features the following specs:

  • Display: Curved 2.4-inch QVGA display
