HMD has taken upon itself to restaure Nokia’s former mobile glory. Now, the manufacturer has unveiled the first two phones under the Nokia brand, 150 and 150 Dual Sim, both feature phones #mobilemagic
The two mobile phones continue the Nokia 215 series, as they target markets such as India and parts of Africa, where most users are still calling after feature phones. As you can imagine, both handsets come at a low price of Rs 1,750 ($26), focusing on functionality and battery life. There’s no fingerprint readers, no multitouch interfaces to speak of.
Instead, the Nokia 150 and 150 Dual Sim come with Bluetooth with SLAM (NFC replacement), MP3 and FM radio, simple games like Snake Xenzia and Nitro Racing (which you’ll have to buy to keep playing later on). Both work with dual-band 2.5G but come with a battery that guarantees 22 hours of talk time and up to 31 days of standby.
These devices will become available in Europe, APAC and IMEA in the first quarter of 2017. As for smartphones… we’ll have to wait until next summer before we see any of them.
