HMD Global hopes to launch the Nokia 8110 in South Africa towards the end of May, or in early June. General manager for Southern Africa Shaun Durandt told MyBroadband that it has "very real aspirations" for local retail for the device, which will run on the Nokia Smart Feature Operating System built on KaiOS from Mozilla Firefox. Durandt was unable to give a price yet, but said the company hopes to sell it for less than ZAR 1,000.
