Although many smartphone users were not even born back in 1994, HMD Global is currently working on the return of another iconic Nokia phone that was originally released more than two decades ago. After the Nokia 3310 and the "Banana phone" Nokia 8110 were revived, the Nokia 2010 is now on its way to being brought back to life.
According to an anonymous insider who spoke to Android Authority, "the revamped Nokia 2010 will launch next year to mark the 25th anniversary of the first handset" and will feature 4G LTE connectivity, as well as a slightly updated design and a color display. In terms of software, the "new" phone is expected to run on the same mobile operating system as the other members of the Classics lineup, but it might also feature support for modern apps such as WhatsApp and Facebook.
The exclusive report mentioned above also mentions the Nokia A10 name and a few color options, including red, yellow, and black. So far, so good, but we should not forget that yesterday was the 1st of April and the image that Android Authority posted claiming it to be the revamped design looks like the original Nokia 2010 without an antenna and some in-game image placed (not-so-well) on top of the original display. Nevertheless, it was a good try.
If we leave the April Fools' Day joke aside, what classic Nokia phone would you like to see revived by HMD Global next? Before you share your thoughts with us in the comments section, maybe you want to see a rather recent review of the Nokia 2010. Can you imagine anyone reviewing one of today's smartphones in 2045?
