HMD Global, the Nokia brand licensee, has announced the launch of two new feature phones in India. The Finnish startup has released the Nokia 105 and Nokia 130 feature phones, which will join the Nokia 150 and the resurrected Nokia 3310 in the company's feature phone lineup. The Nokia 105 will be available across the country starting July 19, while the Nokia 130 will be made available at a later stage.
The Nokia 105 sports a candybar design similar to other feature phones from the company with a redesigned island style keypad. It sports a 1.8-inch display and is backed by an 800mAh removable battery, rated to deliver 15 hours of talk time and a month long standby. The 2G feature phone runs Nokia Series 30+ platform with 4MB RAM, 4MB ROM and FM Radio support. The feature phone offers a built-in flashlight, micro USB port, 3.5mm audio jack and will be available in blue, white and black colour options with a matte finish. The Nokia 105 is priced at Rs 999 for the single-SIM variant and Rs 1,149 for the dual-SIM variant.
"With more than 4 billion people remaining offline and unable to benefit from the social and economic development opportunities of the internet, simply getting connected by voice and text is still such an important step for many people around the world," said Arto Nummela, CEO, HMD Global.
The Nokia 130, on the other hand, also features a 1.8-inch display like the Nokia 105 feature phone but offers camera and improved memory.
