HMD Global Nokia 8110 4G Banana Phone

If you've ever wanted the same phone that Neo uses in the original Matrix movie but missed your chance in 1996, May 2018 is your time! If you live in Europe anyway... HMD Global has decided to revive the Nokia 8110 phone, as the "Nokia 8110 4G". AKA as the the banana phone. AKA the Matrix phone. It comes in a very Matrix-y plain black finish, or... You guessed it... Banana yellow.

Somewhere between a smart dumb phone, the Nokia 8110 4G is priced at a reasonable 79 euros and probably worth the cost just to experience the nostalgia and be able to play the oldschool Nokia Snake game.
