HMD Global, the licensing partner of the iconic Nokia brand, has quietly launched a fresh lineup of feature phones. While not a big player in the high-end smartphone market, the brand remains a modern classic that still shipped out 11 million feature phones in Q1, according to Counterpoint.
As their names suggest, the Nokia 110 4G and 105 4G are equipped with 4G LTE connectivity. While they may not support WiFi and hotspot tethering, the phones are capable of crystal clear high quality HD Voice calls over VoLTE.
The Nokia 110 and 105 were first released in 2019, but they only had 2G connectivity. Aside from the 4g LTE upgrade, the models have received some design updates. They retain the tiny, compact build of their predecessors, but the form factor is more symmetrical with a slight curvature at the top and bottom.
Both models have a 1.8-inch display with a resolution of 120×160 pixels. The Nokia 105 4G has no camera, whereas the Nokia 110 4G has a single rear camera. They include a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a microSD slot for up to 32GB storage expansion, and an FM radio that doesn’t require a headphone jack. They only differ by the single camera found on the 110 4g, which its sibling lacks.
The simple phones are powered by a 1,020mAh battery and as a nostalgic bonus from the days of yore, they both have a flashlight at the top. They’ll be able to last you several days on standby and up to 5 hours on voice calls. The only downside is that the phones charge using a micro-USB port.
The Nokia 105 4G will be available in Black, Blue, and Red while the Nokia 110 4G will be available in Black, Yellow, and Aqua. There is no word yet on the prices and availability but its 2G predecessors were $15 (~RM62) and $20 (~RM82) respectively.
