HMD Global, which now operates the Nokia brand, has resurrected the iconic Nokia 8110 which first hit the market 22 years ago.

The banana-shaped slider phone gained global fame when it was used by movie star Keanu Reeves in the Hollywood blockbuster The Matrix.

The feature phone now comes with 4G connectivity and applications, including Google Maps, Google Assistant, Facebook and Twitter.

It was released along with other four new Nokia phones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
