And just like that HMD Global unveiled the first Nokia phones in the post-Microsoft era. Calm down, the Nokia 150 and Nokia 150 Dual SIM are just feature phones, the kind of which there are oh so many.
Both will cost around $26/€25 (before taxes and subsidies) and are pretty much a a follow-up to the Nokia 215 and others. This means MP3 and FM radio, Bluetooth with SLAM (a substitute for NFC) and stellar battery life - 22 hours of talk time and up to 31 days of standby.
Aside from audio, the two phones come with games for entertainment - Snake Xenzia is preloaded, plus a “try and buy” version of Nitro Racing. There’s a camera with flash too, but at VGA resolution it’s going to see very limited use.
The Nokia 150 and 150 are launching in Q1 2017 in Europe, APAC and IMEA. Both are limited to dual-band 2.5G (900/1800MHz)

i always love nokia
