Reliance today announced successor to its wildly successful Jio Phone and the good news of WhatsApp arriving to KaiOS was shared too during the announcement. While the release made it appear as if WhatsApp availability is Jio Phone 2 specific initially, but HMD has now officially teased WhatsApp for Nokia 8110 4G.
HMD CPO Juho Sarvikas posted a tweet on twitter that clearly confirms WhatsApp becoming available for the banana phone Nokia 8110 4G soon.
Oh look, #Whatsapp on #KaiOS! Looking forward to going 🍌s! https://t.co/Av6gW3T2M0

While Reliance Jio Phone created quite a momentum in India with its first-for-a-feature-phone 4G support, KaiOS and super-affordable pricing, HMD is all set to give it a run for its money with Nokia 8110 4G. The Banana or Matrix phone not only has lots of nostalgic appeal it looks much more attractive than the Reliance Jio Phone.
With availability of apps like WhatsApp, Facebook and YouTube Nokia 8110 4G may even hit the low-end smartphones hard with its appeal. Many people love the simplicity of a feature phone and still want to use WhatsApp.
We earlier reported about Nokia 8110 4G going on pre-order in European markets and becoming available in Singapore, UAE and Saudi Arabia.
