HMD, the producers of Nokia-branded phones these days, will revive the cinematic classic “banana phone,” better known as the Nokia 8110. The curved sliding cell phone featured in “The Matrix” and was used by Keanu Reeves’ character Neo. Now the retro device is returning in black (but with a banana yellow variation) as well. It’s quite basic, running on Smart Feature OS, but comes complete with an updated version of the game Snake. There’s a two-megapixel camera, a 25 day standby battery life and a handful of other curious attributes that might appeal. It will be on sale worldwide come May, for only 79 euros.
