Very stupid, if Nokia was smart they'd package in 4G LTE connectivity and lose the camera altogether to keep costs down and make it come with a built-in WiFi hotspot feature, FB messenger lite, and WiFi calling out of the box too. Most people would buy the phone just to keep as a back-up phone/portable MP3 player or something to keep while they're travelling. Hell, give them for free when they're getting a high-end smartphone from the manufacturer as a bonus and pack them with USB C and give them meatier, 2,200 mah batteries so you could also use the phone as a portable charging brick if your main smartphone battery dies. What the hell they should be paying me for these ideas.
i hope this one supports at least java ( .jar/.jad ) apps so it won't be boring anymore running a stupid html5 apps. please nokia, bring back a glorious time.
asdfasd, 28 Feb 2020who will buy this these days?People, especially audiophiles, who want to go minimalistic and dump Google would welcome this phone.
asdfasd, 28 Feb 2020who will buy this these days?I will buy if they launch the 5310 model, not 5130 !
asdfasd, 28 Feb 2020who will buy this these days?It's for a specific set of audience my friend. There will be buyers.
Miss my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic with Symbian games.
This looks more like the Nokia 5000, more than anything else. Only difference is the original 5000 had a better camera (1.3MP), no LED flash, and no memory card support.
who will buy this these days?
Nokia is exploiting people's feelings. People would think it's 5130/5310 reborn and go for it, only to find the new model even worse off than the 11 years old one.
If they truly want something to revive, it should be N series. And I mean earlier, very first models.
Bring me a modern N91 capable of beating LG's QuadDAC arrangement and I'll sell an arm and a leg to get one.
Mr. Machuman, 27 Feb 2020But without those side mounted music control buttons what's the point of XpressMusic branding?... moreWell, as it seems to me they say it has XpressMusic looks, not branding. I do not see it mentioned in the sources anywhere either, in the english text that is.
Is there any agency against pollution around there.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2020Modern version with SpotifyMusic lmao2G only, so very unlikely...
Well this will be probbably suoper cheap who knows we will see.
Modern version with SpotifyMusic lmao
Mr. Machuman, 27 Feb 2020But without those side mounted music control buttons what's the point of XpressMusic branding?... moreI was thinking the same.
What is their strategy ? What is in their Mind? 2G only is dumb move, even for feature phone.
I think they might not want to take risk. So far they haven't showed us anything, not done before.
Nostalgia is good. But retro done right is better.
I personally do liked Nokia 5310 XM better. One of my clasmates had it. It was damn awesome design.
I would like it that with Kai OS, Single gig of ram (enough for that os) , 1500 mAh battery,and 16G internals. With price tag about $100 I would , definitely buy it. I swear.
Had a 5130 back in the day. One of the best phones ever had. Although this looks more of a copy of the 5310 but still nowhere equal to the style and functions both the Xpress music phones had i.e side buttons for controlling music, the lights, S40 OS, 200 PPI screen which was considered high resolution back then, overall looks etc. This looks crap already. The earlier phones were the real deal. I'd still buy a 5310/5130 if available new
Nokia is living in it's past glory smh
