PERHAPS the most popular display at Mobile World Congress 2018 belonged to a veteran of mobile phone technology.

Nokia may have launched four new additions to its portfolio of Android smartphones, but the most interest went to a blast from the past.

Complete with a revamped version of Snake, the "reloaded" Nokia 8110 comes with the iconic curved slider design in two vibrant colours, traditional black and the eye-catching banana yellow.

Users can slide to answer and end calls, or get lost in what Nokia describes an "addictive helicopter-style spin on its axis".

The four new additions to Nokia's Android smartphone range include:

The five devices launched by Nokia at Mobile World Congress - the reloaded Nokia 8110, the Nokia 1, Nokia 6, Nokia 7+ and Nokia 8 Sirocco.
