And just like that, HMD has unwrapped two new Nokia feature phones out of the blue – the Nokia 150 and the Nokia 150 Dual SIM variant.

Touted as “affordable and durable”, these new feature phones can be seen as HMD’s soft-launching of the long-stagnant Nokia brand back into the spotlight.

The Nokia 150 series also features a polycarbonate shell for its casing which is “hard-wearing” and has “scratch-resistant color”. The phones also come pre-loaded with that classic Snake Xenzia game familiar to old-school Nokia fans.

Sure, they’re not smartphones, but at a suggested price tag of $25 (~Php 1.5K) a handset, the new Nokia 150 phones are an interesting ultra-budget option – provided they’re indeed as durable as HMD claims them to be.

HMD is aiming for a rollout of the Nokia 150 series for the APAC, IMEA, and European markets in Q1 2017. Any takers?

  1. Series 30+, if my memory serves me right, caters only to 2.5G and 2.7G(?). Series 60 is a much better OS and even as of today, series 60 is a real-time OS for phones while Android and iOS are not.

  2. Bakit reklamo sa specs eh ang target lang nito ay para sa consumer for call, txt at music. Wag nyo to icompare. Para saken okay tong phone.
