To serve the market segment who cannot afford a high-end mobile phone, Nokia has recently released 150 and 150 dual sim models. The public have expressed mixed emotions over these two feature phones which will be launched during the first quarter next year and rolled out in APAC, IMEA and Europe.

HMD, a Finnish company, is the new caretaker of the Nokia brand and they plan to run their products on Android operating system. With its announcement this month, the brand has made a comeback to the market but with seemingly outmoded features.

The Nokia 150 model highlights a dimension of 118 x 50.2 x 13.5 mm and weight of 81 grams. It has a dedicated memory card slot for up to 32gb but no internal saving capacity. Users can choose from mini-sim or dual-sim capability. For sounds and alerts, it works on polyphonic tones. Its text display uses 65,000 colors and its resolution encompasses 240 x 320 pixels. As for the battery life, its reliability for talk time is up to 22h, for music play is up to 40h and for stand-by is 744h.

The model has a SMS feature, call, FM radio, MP3 Player, games, and 3 mega-pixel camera with a Led flash. It uses micro-usb and Bluetooth connectivity. It comes in black and white colors. News says that the cost will only be around $26.

With the launching of the Nokia 150 and 150 dual sim models, HMD seemingly want to make the public remember what Nokia was known for which is durability. The models are said to last for a long time because of its polycarbonate shells that do not wear out easily. Moreover, the unit boasts of an outstanding battery life. To those who want a back-up device, this Nokia 150 could be a good alternative.

It might seem an unwise move to go back to an old user interface, however, to those who prefer durability, easy navigations and quality brand, there could be a good demand for the Nokia feature phone models.

Let's see what else Nokia has to offer to the consumers!
