After launching the phone in December last year, Nokia has now finally made its first two device available in India as a part of its re-entry in the market — the Nokia 150. The feature phone will be available in two models — Nokia 150 and 150 Dual, with a starting price of Rs 2,059.
Apart from the SIM card slot, both of these phones have identical functionality. The phones do not provide internet access but offer other basic features such as MP3 player, FM radio, Bluetooth v3.0 with SLAM and VGA camera with an LED flash.
The Nokia 150 has a display of 2.4-inch with a long lasting battery life of around 22 hours. The standby time for the Nokia 150 is claimed to be of 31 days while for the dual sim variant its 25 days.
Further, the phone comes loaded with previously installed games like Snake Xenzia, and the try-and-buy version of Nitro Racing by Gameloft2. The phone, featuring a hard-wearing polycarbonate shell and scratch resistant colour, also has a microSD slot, expandable up to 32GB.
In a statement, HMD said,
With a familiar user interface, the new devices respond to consumer demand for great quality, affordability and ease of use… The Nokia 150 and Nokia 150 dual SIM will be available at an estimated retail price of USD 26 before local taxes and subsidies.
The phone has been being manufactured by Foxconn’s subsidiary FIH. It had acquired the Nokia feature phone department from Microsoft in May last year and initiated its feature phone business with Nokia 216.
While the company has launched Nokia 150 feature phone in India, it is yet to launch its new range of smartphones in the Indian market. However, it is expected to start selling its smartphones in India from the month of June.
