The highlight of the Nokia 8110 is no doubt its retro design. The company has retained the slider design, and the curved body from the original device. The only thing missing this time around is the antenna at the top. Describing the design Nokia says, “The new Nokia 8110 4G has a curved protective cover you can slide open to pick up calls and slide back to end them. The unique shape also means you can spin the phone in ways you never imagined.”
