One of the big taking points at MWC 2018 was the launch of the Nokia 8110 4G. A reboot of the 1996 classic, the original was dubbed the ‘banana phone’ thanks to its unique curvature. More than 20 years later, we’ve got the banana phone 2.0.

Here at TechRadar we love phones, both new and old, so when we found out about the new Nokia 8110 4G we visited our phone museum to dig out the original and flew it out to Barcelona with us so it could meet the next generation.

As you can see from the images below, they’re not exactly identical twins, but some of the defining features of the original Nokia 8110 have been resurrected in the new version.

Firstly, the iconic curve returns along with the slider, which when extended positions the microphone much closer to your mouth than traditional phones.

Nokia told TechRadar that the new 8110 4G went through countless iterations, as the its engineers and designers looked to bring “the love and nostalgia [for the original phone] to the modern day” with some tweaks as “some of the old features are not relevant for today’s market.
