Nokia 106 (2018) Feature Phone Launched in India for Rs 1,299

Finnish company HMD Global, which sells Nokia-branded smartphones, on Thursday refreshed its feature phone segment with Nokia 106 for Rs 1,299 in India. The device would be available in dark grey colour across mobile retailers and on Nokia.com/phones. This new feature phone launch from HMD Global comes after the successful Nokia 8.1 smartphone. The Nokia 106 (2018) is rated to offer strong battery life of 21 days standby time. The phone will be available for purchase via offline stores across the country. To recall, the same feature phone was launched in China back in November 2018.

The Nokia 106 has a battery that comes with up to 15.7 hours talk time and up to 21 days of standby time. “India is an important feature phone market. Consumers here seek outstanding battery life, a simple to use interface, and great durability. Nokia phones are synonymous with these and we’re delighted to introduce Nokia 106 and hope to continue to drive connectivity for millions of consumers here,” Ajey Mehta, Vice President and Country Head-India, HMD Global, said in a statement.

Consumers can also use a micro-USB charger to power up the Nokia 106, the company added. The device comes with the classic Snake Xenzia game and can store up to 2,000 contacts.

There’s an LED torch, FM radio and option to store up to 500 text messages. The Nokia 106 sports a polycarbonate body with inherent colouring that means the colour runs through the material, thus, making scratches less detectable, the company said.

HMD Global is back into the top position in India’s feature phone market. Last year, HMD launched the Nokia 8110 4G feature phone in the country taking on the Reliance JioPhone. The Nokia 8110 is also known as the Banana phone.

Eventually all networks might migrate 2g spectrum to 4g spectrum. Introducing such phones is a wasteful resource. These phones might soon get defunct considering the volumes of Jio Phones being sold and diminishing user base of Airtel and Vodafone Idea.
