HMD Global is keen on keeping the Nokia name popular among developing markets. While we wait for the release of Nokia’s newest flagship phone, its parent company has announced two feature phones that look more basic than the new 3310.
First off, we have the Nokia 105. The model name is borrowed from its 2015 predecessor, but it now has a more playful-looking body. There isn’t anything new aside from its bigger 1.8-inch color display. It’s only a 2G phone with no camera, but it has an FM Radio to keep you entertained on the road. Battery capacity is still at 800mAh which has a promised 15 hours of talk time and one-month stand by time. You won’t be looking for your charger often with this one.
The single-SIM model will cost US$ 14.50 or INR 999 while the dual-SIM is at US$ 15 or INR 1,149. Blue, white, and black color options will be available.
Then there’s the new Nokia 130. It’s another 2017 version of a former dumb phone that covers only the essentials. It has the same 1.8-inch display, but has 8MB of storage. Don’t panic as it has a microSD card slot that supports up to 32GB. You should put in a microSD card to take more pictures with its camera and store music for its MP3 player. The battery capacity is beefier at 1020mAh.
The Nokia 130 will cost US$ 21.50 and will be available in red, gray, and black color options.
Both phones share a number of features: They run Nokia S30+ platform, come in single- and dual-SIM variants, have LED torchlight, and have Snake Xenzia pre-installed.
