HMD to remake nostalgic Nokia 2010 on its silver jubilee
HMD Global has transformed the way we see at Nokia phone. The company has released a handful of Nokia branded Android phones last year, as well as this year. The remake of legendary Nokia 3310 and ‘banana phone’ Nokia 8810 has kept the company alive in nostalgia. As of now, the reports are coming in that HMD is working on a new addition to its Classics phone list and that is iconic Nokia 2010.
Nokia 2010 was originally launched back in 1994, and it will be revamped next year to mark the 25th anniversary of the first handset, as reported by Android Authority. The revamped 2010 is likely to feature colorful body shells with a slightly modified design to sit with feature phones of the modern age. The phone could boast a 4G LTE connectivity and a color screen.
HMD could eliminate the extended antenna like it did with 3310 of 2017 and buttons would also be redesigned. As for the operating system, Nokia could use the same one as it did in the 3310 or use the modern Internet-apps ready Kai OS-based OS. Android Authority reports that it will run a lite version of Facebook and WhatsApp, which could make it logical to buy in 2019.
It’s not clear that when exactly HMD will relaunch this phone or should we believe in this report blindly. However, citing the ongoing Nokia’s trend of releasing modern classics every year, the possibility of Nokia 2010 becoming a reality is believable. And if this is to continue in the future, what are the other Nokia classics you want to see?
