Nokia revealed 4 different handsets at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. The list of four Nokia phones includes phones that will target both budget-conscious customers and high-end, pricey device lovers.
The Finnish phone manufacturer has introduced Nokia 105, Nokia 301, Nokia Lumia 520 and Nokia Lumia 720. Let’s start with the entry-level handsets that is, Nokia 105 and Nokia 301.
Nokia 105 and Nokia 301are two low-cost phones that are being priced $20 and $85, respectively. The first one is a 1.5-inch screen phone without a camera, but with a durable 800mAh battery, that reportedly could last up to 30 days. Other than that, Nokia 105 does not offer any of the currently popular phone features, which significantly limits its functionality. Nokia 301 is a bit more expensive, but still cheap in comparison to high-end handsets. It has a 2.4-inch display with a resolution of 320×240 pixels, a 3G feature, a 3.2MP camera and the possibility for adding a microSD card for image storage. Nokia 301 also packs a durable battery, which lasts up to 6 hours of talk. Both devices will be available in a wide range of color options, such as white, black, yellow, cyan…
On the other hand, we have the Lumia handsets, which will also be featured in many color variants, but offer more premium specs and therefore are more expensive. Both handsets run Windows Phone 8 OS, do not support LTE and can be operated with gloves, thanks to their supersensitive touchscreen capabilities.
Nokia Lumia 520 features a 4-inch display with a resolution of 800×480 pixels, 512MB of RAM, a 1GHz dual-core processor, a microSD card slot and a 5MP rear-facing camera. It will have a price tag of $183. The device will initially appear on the European market and will soon be available for purchase in T-Mobile.
Nokia Lumia 720 packs a dual-core 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, a 4.3-inch supersensitive ClearBlack LCD touchscreen with 800x480pixel resolution, 512MB of RAM, NFC, a 6.7MP camera on the back side, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, microSD card slot and 2000mAh battery. Wireless charging is one of Nokia Lumia 720’s cool features, as well. The handset will be launched in March and will cost around $330.
It’s also worth mentioning that Nokia has unveiled that the Windows Phone platform is now able to offer more than 130.000 apps to its users. This is a great improvement and we do hope this number continues to grow in the future.
