We’ve seen more of this design theme from the likes of Huawei/Honor, Xiaomi, and Realme, where the name of the smartphone company is engraved at the back of the device. But unlike Infinix, instead of using it own brand name at the back of the device, it decided to stamp Davido’s instead.

But digging right into the internals of the phone, you will meet same specs as the vanilla Note 8, which includes Mediatek Helio G80 gaming CPU, 6GB RAM, a built-in 128GB of storage, Android 10 based on XOS 7.1 and a 5200mAh battery with 18W fast charger.

At the front, the large 6.95-inches HD+ display remained untouched. This means the dual selfie snapper is still hidden in the front pill-notch. And in addition to the engraved Davido at the back, you are getting same quad-rear camera setup, driven by a larger 64-megapixel main lens, along with three other auxiliary lenses.

The device is currently sold via Slot System, and should be available via other online stores as well. You can follow this link to learn more about the Note 8-series from Infinix.

Both of these phones are well over a decade, and are based on Nokia Java-series with limited built-in communications. Now these devices have been listed by a carrier named Telia in a list of phones that support Wi-Fi calling.

The specifications of these new devices haven’t been revealed but the rumours has it that the devices might be running on KaiOS and should also support 4G connectivity.

Personally, I would love to see how these 2006 legendary mobile phones will look in 2020, after a massive 14-years. Moreover, I wish the upcoming Nokia 6300 – a device I personally used – will go beyond just being a 4G phone, to a full fledge smartphone.

HMD Global have resurrected few other older Nokia feature phones. For example, the popular Nokia 3310, 5310 Xpress Music and the Nokia 2720 flip were relaunched between 2017 and 2020. Hopefully the company will step into the upper Symbian series like the Nokia N86 and N96 series later on in 2021.
