HMD Global to release newer versions of the Nokia 150 and Nokia 125 soon
The term 'feature phone' is a bit of an oxymoron, considering that phones sold under that category are quite devoid of features. Feature phones are a bit of a dying breed, as smartphones can be had for as little as $75 in some regions. However, Nokia seems to think that there is still a market for them, as the company reportedly has two feature phones in the pipeline.
Prolific leaker Roland Quandt stumbled upon mentions of two new Nokia feature phones, namely the Nokia 150 and Nokia 125. We're probably looking at refreshed versions of both devices, as they're already available for purchase. Both phones run relatively old hardware, and it'll be interesting to see what Nokia has in store for us.
At best, we're looking at 4G-ready versions of the Nokia 150 and Nokia 125 running KaiOS. The ease of use, combined with their sub $50 price, should make it an attractive option for those on a tight budget. They can also serve as alternatives for those looking for a smartphone detox, while still retaining the ability to stay in touch with people.
