The Unbendable, the Banana, and the Go: Which of these Nokia Devices Excites You the Most?

Guess who has had an interesting MWC?

Nokia officially launched 5 devices at this year’s MWC, because, why not?!

THE ANDROID GO

The Nokia 1 is one of the first Android Go devices with 4G support.

Similar to the Nokia 2 I reviewed, the Nokia 1 is even less impressive in the specs department. However, you can’t deny the fact that it looks cute.

Specs-wise you have a 4.5-inch FWVGA display with a resolution of 854×480 pixels,  a low-end MediaTek CPU paired with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage that is expandable, a 5-megapixel camera at the rear with LED flash, 2-megapixels front camera, a  2150 mAH battery and a price tag of $85 (N30,000).

THE BANANA

Still on the budget-device spree, the company launched the Banana (It’s called the banana because of the color), otherwise known as the Nokia 8810. This is a slider phone with 4G connectivity. On the specs side of things, you’d get a 2.4-inch QVGA display, along with a Qualcomm 205 Mobile Platform. It includes 512MB RAM and has 4GB of internal memory. You are also getting a 2-megapixel rear camera and a 1500 mAh battery.

 I don’t know what Nokia was thinking of by giving the 8810 a price tag of $94, but that’s what it is. 

 

THE UNBENDABLE

Then there is the Unbendable, which is by far the strongest Smartphone from Nokia.

It features a stainless steel, an IP67-rated design that Nokia claims has 3.5 times the structural integrity of 6000 series aluminum smartphones. It also looks similar to the Note 8 thanks to its curved edge-to-edge Quad HD (2560 x 1440) OLED 16:9 display that is shielded by a shatter-resistant Gorilla Glass panel.

As far as price is concerned, this would cost about $749. (N270,000).

THE OTHERS

Other devices include the Nokia 6 — features a “seamless aluminum unibody” design, Zeiss optics, a facial recognition feature, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, and Qi wireless charging. You are also getting a 2.5D Full HD (1920 x 1080) 16:9 screen, 3GB/4GB of RAM, 6MP (rear),8MP (front) and 3,000mAh battery all for $343 (N124,000)— and the Nokia 7 Plus, built from aluminum and features six layers of “ceramic feel” paint.

With this one, you are getting a 6-inch Full HD+ (2160 x 1080) 18:9 display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 system-on-chip paired with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage (expandable up to 256GB), a 3,800mAh battery, a dual rear camera with a dual-tone LED flash, which consists of a 13MP primary camera/ 12MP secondary sensor, you’d also get a 16MP fixed sensor front camera with Zeiss optics, all going for $490 (N177,000).

Over to you, which of these five devices are you excited for?

    1. I totally love the 8810 4G…. Looks fresh!
      Does it only come in one color? A darker colour would make sense, black perhaps.

      Though it might sound weird, I love the banana. Looks like something i can buy for my mum cos i’m guessing it should have keypads. The pricetag is the turn off

    3. tee says:

      The banana would be the perfect hotline/4G hotspot to accompany your smartphone

    4. Covenant Oyetade says:

      The phones look great. But the price…uhm….

    5. ỌBÁDÁRÀ says:

      … WELL, THE 8 SIROCO WOULD HAVE BEEN A CHOICE IF NOT FOR PRICING IT LIKE THE S9 WHICH IS ON A LEAGUE OF ITS OWN. THE BANANA🍌 PHONE IS REALLY A GOOD COME BACK ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT YET SOLD OUT TO THE FORM FACTORS AND ALL TOUCH SCREENS LIKE WARREN BUFFET. THE PRICE THOUGH IS HEFTY…

    6. The banana will beat the Nokia 3210 in terms of beauty and portable. The best phone among them all is the Nokia 8 Sirocco. I think that is the first phone from Nokia to come with a wireless charging technology.

    7. prime says:
