The Nokia 150 is the first Nokia-branded phone to come from the hands of HMD Global. In December last year, the company announced the Nokia 15o and Nokia 150 Dual SIM feature phones, but the pricing and availability of these devices are not mentioned at that time. Now the Nokia 150 Dual SIM is listed on Flipkart and Amazon India for Rs. 2,059. At the MWC 2017, the company launched the new Nokia 3310 feature phone as an upgraded version of the 17 years old Nokia 3310. Just like the new Nokia 3310, the Nokia 150 also comes with a color display and the popular Snake game.
The Indian smartphone manufacturer, Lava recently launched the 4G Connect M1 feature phone with 4G VoLTE support. In the coming days, Micromax will also launch the Bharat One VoLTE feature phone for just Rs. 1,999. Coming to the Nokia 150, it completely lacks the internet connectivity. Unless the Jio 4G network works on 2G bands, the Nokia 150 can’t be used with Jio SIM. It sports a 2.4-inch TFT display with 240 x 320 pixels resolution. Beneath the display is the T9 keyboard with D-pad and two soft keys. There are also two separate buttons for answering and ending the calls.
With the simple to use UI and Nokia’s superior build quality makes the Nokia 150 a good alternative for senior citizens who might not use the Internet on mobile phones. Though the device comes with just 4MB of storage, the user can expand the storage up to 32GB using the MicroSD card slot. The Nokia 150 includes Music Player and FM Radio for listening music. There is also a 0.3MP camera on the rear with LED flash. The phone comes with a removable 1,020mAh battery and is mentioned to give 22 hours of talk time and lasts up to 31 days in standby mode.
The Nokia 150 measures 118 x 50.2 x 13.5 mm and weighs just 81 grams. It runs on Nokia Series 30+ OS and supports Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity for wirelessly sharing the files with other devices. As the name suggests, it supports dual SIM and accepts only Micro SIMs. Nokia is also offering a basic headset and charger within the package. It is available in White and Black color options on Flipkart, but on Amazon India, only the Black color variant is listed as of now. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details about the upcoming feature phones.
