Jivi Banana 6

Shubham Nagpal New Delhi
Jivi, a home-grown mobile phone brand known for budget phones, recently launched the Banana 6 at Rs 1,299. Replica of the Nokia 8110 feature phone, famous for its banana-shaped design and commonly known as the original banana phone, the Jivi Banana 6 is also a feature phone with a curved design and a slider on the front, covering the keypad.

In terms of design, the phone’s bright yellow colour pops out too much and might not go down well with everyone. The slider mechanism is reminiscent of the good old Nokia days when phones with sliders and flaps were common.
