The device is inspired by the Nokia 1100's characteristic design, but remains an Android smartphone. It's compact, durable, and features a removable battery. The back panel is covered in soft touch rubber, the body is rounded, and curved glass covers its screen. Uhans is presenting the phone in a deep navy blue color, borrowing from Nokia's original choice of shade and hue.
The Android 6.0-powered A101 features a 5-inch display and is powered by a quad-core MediaTek CPU. It's a basic, entry-level model that's going to cost less than $70 in its homeland. Maybe this phone too has the potential to sell 200 millions units like the Nokia original did. Maybe it doesn't. But honoring a device that meant a lot for users and for the company that made it is a seriously nice touch, rarely seen in the overwhelmingly competitive smartphone industry.
