Nokia has announced two budget phones packed with great features. We know that advanced mobile phones today do have massive screens, powerful processing power and incredible imaging features. Most people do love that and has gone crazy getting every newly released smartphones in the market. But some people still miss the good old days of having a simple phone capable of making calls and sms. You may call them old-fashioned but let’s face it, these powerful smartphones have weak battery life and it might died the moment you need it most.
Nokia is true to its vision of ‘Connecting People’ because they are here to deliver mobile technology for every market segment. Two new budget phones, Nokia 106 and 107 are here to cater the low-priced segment yet delivering superb mobile technology.
Nokia 106 and 107 both runs on Series 30 platform and has a 1.8 inch screen TFT display. These phones are patterned to the Lumia-esque design that gives a more refreshing look. Both measure 112.9mm x 47.5mm x 14.9 mm and weighs 75.8g (dual sim) / 74.2g (single sim). Interestingly, these devices have dust and spill resistant keyboards and like other Series 30 phone, FM radio and LED flashlights are included.
In terms of battery, these two have an incredible stand by time of 36 days (dual sim) and 35 days (single sim). The reason why the dual sim has a longer standby time is due to its larger battery (1020 mAh) while the single sim has 800 mAh. Well, it’s not a big difference thought but the 106 weighs less.
Both phones can be expanded up to 16gb of storage via microSD card. Nokia says that you can add 3,000 songs on it and enjoy music playback endurance of 34.8 hours.
All these for only $25 for the 107 and $23 for the 106. Based on sources, Nokia 106 and 107 will be launched initially in China in the coming months (Q3).
