WhatsApp finally comes with the Nokia 8110: this is what you would expect

It is more than a year since the Nokia 8110 was launched, but HMD Global has finally announced that WhatsApp is available on the smart function phone.

But before you go out and buy a Nokia 8110, the company said that this WhatsApp release is limited to India for the time being. Hopefully other regions will follow this sooner than later.

The recovered banana phone was launched on MWC 2018, with a version of the KaiOS platform called Smart Feature OS. KaiOS brings various smartphone functions to a standard design of a function phone, such as Google Search, YouTube and Google Assistant. It also supports hardware functions such as 4G, Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth.

Nokia & # 39; s phone is not the first KaiOS device to get WhatsApp, because India & # 39; s wildly popular JioPhone series received the messaging app late last year. The KaiOS version of WhatsApp requires firmware version 2.5.1 or higher and supports basic messaging functions, group chats, voice notes and photo & # 39; s / video & # 39; s parts.

In India and have a Nokia 8110? Then you can download WhatsApp via the Store app on your banana phone. Have you noticed other major differences between the KaiOS version and the Android version? Let us know in the comments below!
