Notably, back in July as well, the HMD Global chief Juho Sarvikas dropped a similar hint. This was when Reliance Jio had announced YouTube, WhatsApp and Facebook support on the JioPhone and JioPhone 2, both of which use the KaiOS as well. Sarvikas teased that WhatsApp may come to the Banana phone too. While the device in India got the support, users in other countries have been waiting still.

Dubbed the 'banana phone', the device is a 4G-enabled and runs on a Smart Feature OS which has its own app store called the Smart Feature Play Store. It supports Facebook, Twitter, and the Google Assistant as of now, already placing it ahead of its game.

The device runs on a 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage. During the launch, the Nokia 8110 was announced at Rs 5,999 in India.
