The phone comes in two versions - Nokia 150 and Nokia 150 Dual SIM. Both phones have 2.4-inch QVGA screen with a resolution of just 320 x 240 pixels. They come with a built-in FM radio and MP3 player.
With the launch of Nokia 150, HMD Global will further strengthen the Nokia feature phones portfolio comprising of best-sellers like Nokia 105, Nokia 216 and Nokia 230. The new phones - the first Nokia feature phones to be released by HMD - combine beautiful craftsmanship with hallmark Nokia durability. Featuring hard-wearing polycarbonate shells and scratch-resistant color, the Nokia 150 phones are built to last.
The 1020 mAh battery gives you up to 22 hours of talk time and up to 31 days standby time for Nokia 150, while the standby time drops to 25 days for Dual SIM. Oh, and did I mention the Nokia 150 and Nokia 150 Dual SIM have a keypad?
Other features include a VGA camera with LED flash, MicroSD card support up to 32GB, and Bluetooth. The phones will come in two colors - black and white, for a price of only $26 (before taxes).
The phones will become available globally in selected markets - rolling out first in Europe, parts of Asia, the Middle East and Africa, in Q1 2017.
