While Samsung is launching the new Galaxy S9, Nokia is over here reviving phones.

The electronics company made big announcements at the HMD Global launch event in Barcelona on Sunday, ahead of the 2018 Mobile World Congress. Not only did they launch the sleek and elegant Nokia 7 Plus, but they also revealed a comeback that every millennial will love, according to Gadgets 360.

Turns out, Nokia is bringing back their Nokia 8110 mobile phone that was once a big hit in the '90s. As the first Nokia phone with monochrome graphic LCD, it was considered super high-end back in the days and had a sliding cover protecting the keypad—super stylish. This phone was so popular that it was even featured in the 1999 action-packed film, The Matrix.

Coined as the Nokia 8110 4G, this 1996 baby is making a comeback in 2018 but with a whole new modern makeover.
