Nokia launches new phone in India, Nokia 150

HMD Global, which holds the license to manufacture Nokia-branded smartphones, has introduced a new feature phone in India. Dubbed Nokia 150, the phone was unveiled back in December last year. At that time, HMD Global had said that the mobile phone would be made available globally in the January-March quarter.
The Nokia 150 has been launched in single-SIM as well as dual-SIM variants , and both have a price tag of Rs 2,059. It’s available for purchase from Amazon India and Flipkart.
The Nokia 150 has a polycarbonate body which the company claims “keeps its colour even when scratched”. Running Series 30+ OS, the phone sports a 2.4-inch QVGA display of 240×320 pixels resolution. It measures 118.0×50.2×13.5mm and weighs 81g.
For imaging duties, the Nokia 150 (both single-SIM and dual-SIM) have a VGA rear camera with LED flash. The phone supports microSD cards of up to 32GB in size.
Backed by a 1,020mAh BL-5C battery, the Nokia 150 comes in White and Black colour variants. The budget phone is claimed to deliver up to 31 days of standby time and up to 22 hours of talk time. It can also play MP3 music files for up to 40 hours and FM radio for up to 56 hours. Nokia 150 has 2.5G, Bluetooth and microUSB as connectivity options.
Both variants of Nokia 150 come with two pre-installed games – Snake Xenzia and Gameloft Nitro Racing.
