Nokia bids farewell to Microsoft, and now under its new owner HMD Global Oy, a Finnish startup company. Nokia wants to return to its glory days but seems it cannot push to that level yet. Two days ago, Nokia 150 and Nokia 150 dual SIM phones were unveiled and Nokia fans should expect nothing but classic, cheap and durable phone. These three words I think best describe these phones right now.
Nokia 150 never missed to include an unforgettable and addictive classic Snake Xenzia game on it. Nokia maintained a familiar user interface in its operating system. Nokia 150 packs several classic features such as a 2.4-inch screen, an MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity, built-in FM radio, an iconic keypad and a shitty VGA camera with LED flash that can be used as a torch. There is no Wi-Fi connectivity and no Java browser — so don’t expect you can chat with Facebook friends or post a tweet on Twitter. Luckily, you can charge it with a standard micro USB cable.
Expect to arrive in the first quarter of 2017 in the Asia-Pacific (APAC), India, Middle East and Africa (IMEA) and Europe, the two Nokia 150 models are extremely cheap at about $26 retail price.
According to HMD, the new phones feature hard-wearing polycarbonate shells and scratch-resistant color that means phones are built to last — a claim which most Nokia users definitely agree.
