Nokia drops the poker of smartphones at Mobile World Congress 2018

Not only Nokia 8110. The Finnish manufacturer arrives in Catalonia with a poker of smartphones and all the intention of taking back what was its place

The Mobile World Congress 2017 marked, for Nokia, the moment of rebirth. After a few years away from the mobile phone scene, the historic Scandinavian manufacturer was back with three smartphones (Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6) and a small gift for its fans: a Nokia 3310 different in colors but identical in lines to the iconic phone.

The MWC 2018, however, should represent the event that confirms that Nokia is definitely back on the stages that compete with it. And since "team that wins does not change", the score followed by the Finnish manufacturer in this edition of the MWC is more or less the same as the previous year. Nokia arrives in Barcelona with several smartphones (4 on this occasion) and a phone fished directly from the drawer of the successes of Espoo. This year it was the turn of the Nokia 8110, better known by the name of banana phone and author of an appearance in the first chapter of the Matrix.
