Nokia goes back to basics with launch of new phone


Nokia has gone back to basics with the launch of its latest mobile phone.

The Finnish company’s Nokia 150 is just the first step in their relaunch into the mobile industry and is more akin to their devices of the past rather than modern smartphones.

The new device is expected to cost around $26 (approx THB930).

The ‘dumb phone’ doesn’t have a high-powered camera or any fast hardware, not to mention the lack of an app store but if you are just looking for a plain and simple second device, this might just be what you are looking for.

The Nokia 150 has a tiny 2.4 in QVGA screen and a 1020mAh battery that will last longer than 24 hours.

It has a rear camera that has an LED flash, 32GB of storage – if you use a microSD card and perhaps most impressively, the classic Snake Xenzia game.

Nokia announced at the start of December that they would be launching several new smartphones powered by Google’s Android software.

2017 is tipped to be a big year for Nokia with the brand’s return to the smartphone market expected at the Mobile World Congress in February.

At the event, Nokia is set to unveil the D1C smartphone, a mid range Android device that is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor alongside 3GB RAM.

Announcing the comeback earlier this month, the company said: “We are excited about building the next chapter for Nokia phones. We see this as a brilliant opportunity to solve real life consumer problems and to deliver on the quality and designs that the Nokia brand has been always known for.”
