Launched for the global market back in July 2022 is Nokia’s most recent feature phone, the Nokia 8210 4G, which is a modern take on the brand’s classic device of the same name from 1999. Though several months late, the company has officially confirmed that the new throwback handset has finally arrived in Malaysia.
For the uninitiated, the original Nokia 8210 was the brand’s smallest and lightest mobile phone in the market. Most interestingly, it continued to be in popular demand well into the first decade of the new millennium despite its old shelf age. Though not as legendary as the Nokia 3310 model, the handset is a fan favourite amongst retro cell phone enthusiasts.
At a glance, the modernised Nokia 8210 4G closely resembles the vintage model in terms of design, but with certain differences. For starters, it is obviously larger than the original, measuring at 13.8 mm (h) x 131.3 mm (l) x 56.2 mm (w) and weighs around 107 g. The phone’s screen is larger too, coming in at 2.8-inches and features a resolution of only 320 x 240 pixels. Of course, situated below the display is a physical keypad for typing and such, while on the bottom is a microUSB port and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Lastly, powering the phone is a removable 1,450 mAh battery. Though small in current technology standards, Nokia says it actually provides enough juice which would allow the 8210 4G to last for weeks before needing to connect to a charger.
The new Nokia 8210 4G is priced at RM 299, and is available in Dark Blue and Red colours. Those interested can purchase the feature phone via authorised Nokia dealers nationwide, as well as the brand’s official online stores on Shopee and Lazada.
