HMD Global unveiled the Noia 8110 4G, affectionately called the “banana phone,” at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona last month. The company didn’t say if and when this handset is going to be launched in the United States as it only confirmed availability for Europe but a new report claims that the company is going to bring this handset to the United States in the second quarter of this year.

HMD Global is the Finnish company that’s making these Nokia-branded smartphones now. It unveiled a handful of new models at MWC 2018 last month and the banana phone was one of them.

It confirmed at MWC last month that the Nokia 8110 4G is going to be launched in Europe come May for €89. Despite a lot of curiosity about the subject, the company didn’t say anything about the U.S. availability of this device.

It was reported that HMD has no plans to bring the new Nokia devices to the United States this year, a recent report claimed that the Nokia 1, Nokia 7 Plus, and the Nokia 6 2018 will be eventually released in the U.S. The same source has now claimed that HMD Global will launch the Nokia 8110 4G in the country come Q2, 2018.

No word as yet on what this handset might cost if and when it’s released in the United States. One can expect it to cost around $100 based on the conversion from euro to dollar. HMD Global hasn’t confirmed or denied this report as yet.
