Check Out Cool Features Of The New Nokia Android Smart Phones

Nokia-branded handsets are returning to the
market with the first announced device being
a $26 dumb phone complete with the classic
“Snake” mobile game.

Earlier this year, a company called HMD
Global, which is formed of ex-Nokia
executives, acquired the rights and
intellectual property licenses from the
Finnish firm. This gives HMD exclusive global
brand licensing rights for the next 10 years.

Under the agreement, Nokia will receive
royalty payments from HMD for sales of
every Nokia branded mobile phone or tablet.
The first result of this deal is the Nokia 150
and Nokia 150 Dual SIM – two feature phones
announced by HMD on Tuesday which will
cost $26. They are so-called “dumb phones” –
without internet connectivity.

HMD Global’s Nokia-branded device is
expected to go on sale in the first quarter of

Here are some of the features of the devices:
FM radio and MP3 player; 2.4 inch screen;
Physical keypad; Battery life – 22 hours of
talk time and 31 days on standby
In a nod back to the classic durability of
Nokia phones, HMD said the devices are
“built to last”. The company has also pre-
loaded “Snake Xenzia” onto the phones,
which should excite Nokia fans.

Both handsets will come in black or white,
cost $26, and will be rolling out in Asia-
Pacific, India, the Middle East, Africa, and
Europe in the first quarter of 2017.

As expected, the phone will run on Android,
and HMD has confirmed that it will ship with
Nougat, the seventh major version of
Google’s operating system. Unlike the Nokia
Lumia range of Windows Phone-powered
handsets, using Android should allow the
brand to tap into the wide range of third-
party Android applications available on the

Launching in China opens up a number of

There are still many emerging markets where
the Nokia 150 might find appeal, helped by

Nokia exited the phone business when it
completed the sale of the division to
Microsoft in 2014. The U.S. technology giant
failed to make the acquisition work and has
since wrote off its entire purchase of Nokia
and announced 7,800 layoffs, mostly in the
phone division.
Since that sale, Nokia has been focusing on
its crucial Networks division and new areas
of technology such as 5G Internet, virtual
reality and health care. For Nokia, this will
help them earn revenue without having to
manufacture phones.
