- If you’re fed up with charging your smartphone every night – not to mention trawling through hundreds of features just to make a call – then you’re in luck.
- Nokia has launched a simple 20 € mobile phone that can last for 35 days on a single charge.
- It is aimed at emerging markets where electricity is rare, but could also be sold as a back-up phone.
‘The new Nokia 105 builds on the success of its predecessor, the award-winning Nokia 105, and adds several improvements to enable you to achieve more,’ the firm said.
On top of the enhanced audio for even better voice clarity, you can now talk longer; the new Nokia 105 supports up to 15-hours talk time.
So you can talk, and talk, and talk with your friends and family.
With an extended phonebook capacity, the new Nokia 105 can store up to 2,000 contacts.
It’s now the cheapest phone in the Finnish firm’s range, and was hailed as ‘the ultimate festival phone’ at its launch.
‘Of course we’ve kept the incredible battery life for which that our mobiles phones have been known! Up to 35 days standby time – yes, that’s more than a month on a single battery charge – means you don’t need to worry about constantly charging your phone,’ it said.
It will also be available in a dual sim version.
A spokesman for Nokia said: ‘The phone was created to offer the essentials – phone calls and SMS – but also some desirable extras.
Nokia’s experience in optimising phone quality, combined with its global footprint and economies of scale, is a major contributor to being able to work to such a low price.
