Nokia announced that it would be bringing back the Matrix banana phone at Mobile World Congress this year, and now it appears that the phone will go on sale in Asia at the end of May. The Nokia 8110 will go on sale in Singapore and Vietnam for S$109 (or about $80), according to CNET. It’ll be available in both black and yellow and should be rolling out globally, as well.

The phone features a 2.4-inch QVGA display and a two-megapixel rear-facing camera. Users will also get access to an upgraded and modernized Snake game, of course, as well as 25 days of battery standby. Nokia previously resurrected its 3310 phone, which also seemed to be a play for people’s pre-smartphone nostalgia. So go try to live in the past, even if it’s not super convenient.
