HMD Global has released no less than 6 smartphones this year. The manufacturer decided to take a break today and announced something else – the Nokia 106 feature phone. It also announced two new color variants for the Nokia 230.
The Nokia 106 has a candy bar design with a T9 physical keyboard. The phone sports a 1.8-inch color display and a polycarbonate body. Nokia says it has inherent coloring which means the color runs through the material, hence scratches should be less visible.
The phone is powered by an MTK 6261D processor paired with 4MB of RAM and 4MB of storage. It has a removable 800mAh battery that can last up to 21 days on standby and provide up to 15.7 hours of talk time. It has a MicroUSB port for charging and has dual-SIM support.
The Nokia 106 can store up to 2000 contacts and 500 messages. Just like other Nokia Classic phones, the Nokia 106 comes bundled with Snake Xenzia as well as a couple of try-and-buy games.
HMD Global also announced two new colors for the Nokia 230, another classic phone released back in 2015. Originally available in Black and White, it now comes in Light Gray and Dark Blue for a total of four color variants. The new colors are available for both the single and dual-SIM versions of the phone.
