Nokia 8110 4G, Nokia 1 early camera samples from MWC 2018

We took the affordable Android Go smartphone Nokia 1, and the retro Nokia 8110 4G for a spin and here's how capable their cameras are.

When HMD Global revived the iconic Nokia brand last year, it launched four smartphones, and a special edition Nokia 3310 feature phone with a color screen display and camera. At this year s MWC 2018, HMD Global revived yet another device from the past. The Nokia 8110 4G, which is infamously known as the banana phone, is back and comes with 4G VoLTE connectivity. It runs on KaiOS, the same operating system that runs on the Reliance JioPhone.

The Nokia 8110 was also featured in the Hollywood movie Matrix, and while it was just a basic phone with a monochrome display, the new Nokia 8110 4G now features a color display and camera. Since I had the opportunity to spend some time with the new Nokia 8110 4G, I decided to try out the camera. The phone features a 2-megapixel fixed focus rear camera along with an LED flash.

Being a basic phone, there s isn t much to expect from the camera, but the photo quality is surprisingly decent. As you can see below, the photos are well composed even with dull lighting. Yes, it was cloudy and mildly snowing, and despite all of that, the photos have come out sharp and fairly well. The only issue is that not everything is in focus, but as there is no auto-focus, it will be vague to complain.

Nokia 1

The Nokia 1 is HMD Global s affordable smartphone that runs Google s Android Go OS. The smartphone runs on a MediaTek quad-core SoC paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB onboard storage. In the camera department, it sports a 5-megapixel fixed focus rear camera with LED flash and a 2-megapixel secondary camera.

I tested the Nokia 1 s camera in the same lighting conditions, and the results were pretty much similar to the Nokia 8110 4G. Because of the slightly higher resolution camera, the photos look marginally little sharp. The front camera was able to capture enough details with fairly decent colors and skin tone, which should be good enough for making video calls.

Overall, both the Nokia 1 and Nokia 8110 4G are equipped with fairly decent cameras in their price segment. However, the devices we took the photos from were early demo units to showcase at MWC 2018, Nokia says that when the devices officially hit the markets, photo quality may see further improvements.
