To recap, over in Singapore, the online retailer Lazada currently has the device in stock in both yellow and black color options and is selling at SGD 98 ($73). For that price, you will be getting a device that is a bit more feature-packed compared to the Nokia 3310, with Wi-Fi, basic app support, and 4G connectivity option.
The device flaunts 2.4-inch display with a 240 x 320 resolution, with a 1.1GHz Qualcomm 205 processor under the hood. The RAM size is just 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage, while it runs on KaiOS, so it basically can not access the Google Play store.
Outside from the design, one of the most intriguing aspects of the Nokia 8110 4G is its battery, HMD says the device comes with a 1500mAh battery, which it claims can last 20 days on a single charge, and will last through a single eight-hour phone call.
The device when available in China will most likely come in in Black and Yellow color options at about $75(474.89 CNY).
