Nokia phones are back in the market! But it’s not the flashy Windows handset we’ve been waiting for. Instead, the company is expanding its feature phone lineup with the Nokia 216. The best part about this phone? It will sell for a mere $37.
Nokia 216 Phone Price & Specifications
Nokia 216 looks similar to the basic Nokia phones that were quite popular until the discovery of smartphones. The Nokia 216 packs a 2.4-inch display with a 320 x 240-pixel resolution. It offers just 16MB of RAM, expandable storage, Bluetooth, and a swappable 1020mAh battery that promises 18 hours of talk time. Microsoft also included a pair of 0.3-megapixel cameras with flash in front and back.
The device runs Nokia’s Series 30 software. You also get the Opera Mini Browser and the Opera Mobile Store, which offers access to Facebook along with other apps and mobile games. The design looks like a classic Nokia candy bar with a physical keypad. It comes in black, gray or light blue with a plastic frame and a rear-facing speaker.

Even though smartphones are the rage nowadays, the feature phone business is still booming in emerging markets like India and Asia where people living in the lower segment of the society cannot afford a smartphone. Apart from being a basic phone Nokia 216 has many other benefits like it can be used in places with low network reception and it is quite durable & handy when compared to other smartphones. It will be available in Indian market for sale from October 24.
The Nokia 216 is unlikely to make it’s way to the U.S., as the company is expected to announce some new high-end Windows hardware later this year.
