HMD, the Finnish firm licensed to sell phones under the Nokia brand, has announced the Nokia 150, a $26 phone with FM radio, MP3 player and, of course, Snake. The launch is a continuation of Nokia’s successful feature phone business, which has been churning out low-end handsets for two decades. The Nokia 105, Nokia 216 and Nokia 230 continue to be popular in developing markets.
The Nokia 150 will be accompanied by the almost identical Nokia 150 Dual SIM, with both handsets the first to be released by HMD since it took over the brand in May 2016. The phones have 2.4-inch, 240×320 screens, keypad controls, FM radio, MP3 players, 22 hours of talk time and standby time of between 25 and 31 days. There’s also an LED torchlight and Bluetooth 3.0.
Crucially, both handsets come pre-loaded with “classic” Snake Xenzia (the version of Snake that’s been around since 2006). The polycarbonate, scratch-resistant handsets are available in black and white.
