Share This Post

Now, Nokia is unveiling three callbacks to the glorious past, the Nokia 2660, Nokia 5710, and Nokia 8210, as well as a brand new tablet–the Nokia T10–that comes with a large battery and the promise of three major Android version updates. Let’s dive in and explore!

Recently, HMD Global, the new owner of the Nokia brand, unveiled four new products, including a tablet, most of which were modelled after vintage Nokia models. The most well-known Nokia products, the 3310 and the 8110 “banana phone,” have been updated versions of some of its most recognisable gadgets.

Highlights

  • The phone is powered by a Unisoc chipset and has 128MB of RAM, 48MB internal storage, and a microSD slot that accepts up to 32GB cards. There’s a single VGA camera, just like the old times. Another blast from the past is the week-long battery life ensured by the 1,450mAh removable (!) battery. There’s also a 3.5mm audio jack with FM radio functionality, as well as a dedicated MP3 player. The Nokia 2660 also comes with a charger in the box, another unicorn. The device is also equipped with a dedicated emergency button, which can quickly call a predefined contact. You can have the Nokia 2660 in Black, Blue, and Red.

  • First up is the Nokia 2660, a clamshell phone that’s essentially a reboot of the same-named device released some 15 years ago, all the way back in 2007. The phone is definitely aimed at the elderly, having tons of accessibility features. It’s made of tough polycarbonate and has been rigorously tested for durability. The phone also has a large 2.8-inch internal and 1.77-inch external display, zoomed-in interface that’s easy to make out from afar, and even has HearingAid Compatibility, great for people that are hard of hearing.

The phone comes with a 2.4″ display, a large removable 1,450mAh battery that can provide weeks of battery life though only up to 4 hours of music playback on a single charge, reportedly, as well as a card slot for microSD cards up to 32GB. Just like the Nokia 2660, the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio has a single VGA camera as well.

The Nokia 5710 XpressAudio slider phone is a modern recreation of the iconic Nokia XpressMusic line of devices, all of which has some dedicated audio features. The new phone definitely has one of those as well – it actually comes with a pair of earbuds built-in. Yes, that’s right: there’s a sliding mechanism at the back of the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio that houses a pair of detachable wireless earbuds that get charged by the phone’s battery as you go. You can use those with other devices if you so wish.
