Official: The all new #Nokia 105 and Nokia 130 announced *UPDATED*

HMD Global announced two new members of the Nokia feature phone family, the all new Nokia 105 and the all new Nokia 130. The new Nokia 105 is the successor to the most affordable Nokia feature phone, that received few hardware updates since launch. The last year’s Nokia 105 is now called “Nokia 105 Classic”, to make a difference from the new Nokia 105. The Nokia 105 series sold over 200 million units since hitting the market in 2013.

Nokia 105 comes with a classic, ergonomic all-plastic body, looking really nice for a feature phone and sharing some design lines from the new 3310. After a quick glance, it’s obvious that the device follows the famous “Fabula” design principle Nokia established in 2011, because the device is clean, with no extra elements on the housing.

Actually, it’s so clean that it doesn’t have a camera, just like the 105 Classic, to keep the price down. The device is 112.0 x 49.5 x 14.4mm in size, weighing just 73g, including the battery. The front is dominated by a 1.8-inch screen with QQVGA resolution (128×128 or 128×160), which is bigger than the 1.4-inch display on the 105 Classic.

The device will come with 2 different GSM bands: 900/1800 for EU (and rest of the world) and 850/1900 for the US. Nokia 105 runs the Nokia S30+ OS, with 4MB RAM and 4MB of internal storage. The battery is removable and has the capacity of 800mAh, that will be enough for up to 15 hours of talk time. The phone is charged via a MicroUSB2.0 port and uses Mini-SIM. A 3.5mm headphone jack and FM Radio are included as well.

Snake Xenzia comes pre-loaded on the phone, but there are other games, like Doodle Jump, that can be downloaded as well. Connectivity standard used is 2(.5)G, and the device also has a flash on the top. It will be offered in three colors: white, black and blue. The device will retail for €12.65 ($14.50) for the Single SIM and €13 ($15) for the Dual-SIM variant, excluding taxes.

We are still expecting the official press release from HMD and we will include it in the article once it’s out. In the mean time, you can check the official Nokia site for more info about the new Nokia 105.

Alongside with the new Nokia 105, the all new Nokia 130 appeared on the official Nokia site. The new 130 is not officially announced, but the product page is up on Nokia.com. The same as with the old 105, the old Nokia 130 now carries the name “Nokia 130 Classic”.

The new 130 comes in a polycarbonate shell, that keeps the color even when scratched, because it has multiple layers of color, just like the old Lumia devices. The size of the phone is 111.5×48.4×14.2mm, and the only bands available are GSM 900/1800 (EU). The phone runs on Nokia S30+ OS, using 4MB of RAM and offering 8MB of internal storage, expandable via MicroSD card. The display is the same 1.8-inch one as on the new Nokia 105, but the new 130 also features a camera.

It has a built-in FM Radio and MP3 player, also a 3.5mm headphone jack. The 1020mAh removable battery can last up to 44 hours of listening FM Radio, and has a one month standby time. It comes pre-loaded with Snake, and five demo version of popular Gameloft games that can be purchased after trying.

It will be available in three colors: white, Black and red, retailing for €18.80 ($21.50) before taxes.

The spec sheet and the official product page are not complete, and HMD probably went a little early on making the 130 product page go live. We will update the article with more info about the new Nokia 130 and with press releases once it’s all out.

Both models feature 1.8-inch colour screens, handy LED torch lights and sleek, contoured designs, with each phone being available in a range of three colours.

With more than 1.3 billion feature phone users around the world, many from markets in Asia and Africa, the reliability and excellent value that both the Nokia 105 and Nokia 130 offer is set to ensure yet more people around the world can get connected.

Nokia 105: designed to take on the everyday

With well over 200 million Nokia 105s sold to date around the world, this award winning handset now features an all new sculpted ergonomic design, outstanding battery life, and improved usability, with a larger screen size and new tactile island keymat. Inspired by the Nokia phone design heritage, the new contoured style of the Nokia 105 makes it a superb fit for your hand thanks to its beautiful, natural shape. With inherent colour throughout its polycarbonate casing minimising the visual impact of knocks and bumps, the Nokia 105 is built to take on everyday life. It offers you the quality, reliability, and robust design you would expect from a Nokia phone.

The new keymat features separated keys for improved usability, while the larger 1.8-inch screen delivers a better viewing experience when playing your favourite games, like Snake Xenzia, which comes preloaded. Taking full advantage of the larger screen, the Nokia 105 also comes preloaded with two try and buy games – Doodle Jump and Crossy Road.

Available in Dual and Single SIM variants, the Nokia 105 also features an inbuilt FM Radio and charges using a standard Micro USB cable (USB 2.0).

Nokia 130: feed your playful side

No matter where you are or what you’re doing, music makes life a lot more fun. With up to 44 hours of FM radio playback time and room for thousands of songs when you add up to 32GB of MicroSD card storage, the Nokia 130 ensures you’ll always have the right track for the moment.

If video is your thing, the clear 1.8-inch colour screen offers a great viewing experience when enjoying video via a MicroSD card.

The Nokia 130 features Bluetooth support for a headset or speakers – perfect for wireless listening to your favourite playlist on the go.

With its inbuilt camera, the Nokia 130 lets you take pictures and record video clips, which you can then play back using a MicroSD card. And with the Nokia 130, sharing your content is simple. Share videos, contacts and more simply by enabling Bluetooth and bringing your Nokia 130 close to another Bluetooth-enabled phone for quick and easy transfer. The Nokia 130 also supports a MicroSD card, expandable up to 32 GB.

“With more than 4 billion people remaining offline and unable to benefit from the social and economic development opportunities of the internet, simply getting connected by voice and text is still such an important step for many people around the world,” commented Arto Nummela, CEO, HMD Global.

“More than 400 million feature phones were sold globally in 2016. We cannot underestimate the need and benefit of being connected and we are dedicated to delivering devices that can enable many people around the world to expand their horizon.”

    Guys, the two phones were officially launched at the same time, it is in the press release:

    • Thank you for that. Will add it to the article.

  • Nokia 130 looks so nice in RED 🙂

  • HMD Global is in a mood of launching new devices. I think, we might see Nokia 7, 8 and 9 launched on 31st July. 🙂

    • Placed awkward, but the same Nokia logo. It is interesting that HMD secured some new games for S30+. Crossy road wasn’t among them before, and some other Gameloft games too. Maybe whatsapp is also being made for S30+ and HMD decided to partner with developers to invest in the ecosystem. Just wishing 😀

      • Whatsapp won’t come on these 2g devices. May be, they might launch a new version of Nokia 222 and 230 with VoLTE support where Whatsapp might work. 🙂
        I don’t think these phones were needed though.

        • Muerte

          Not needed? Over 200 million since 2013 – that is like 50 million units of Nokia 105 per year. That is the case of one single dumbphone model. That creates roughly $500 million or more revenues in total. I think these phones are definitely needed to keep the wheels rolling…

          • But they just relaunched it. They were already available for purchase world wide. No need to relaunch it.
            India will get a VoLTE feature phone from JIO on 21st July and that will be priced similar to Nokia 130. People here are looking for 4g phones due to JIO Caze. I don’t think many will look towards Nokia 105 and Nokia 130 now.

          • Viccky Maurya

            Actually, many will look towards these new handsets. In India, in rular backward area there is still no full 3G coverage and forget 4G. Will Jio work there? The answer is No.

            Rular people still know Nokia as trusted and best phone brand, if you ask them to choose between Nokia and Jio, they surely choose Nokia.

            So, who will buy Jio? Jio will be sold mainly in metro cities which has good 4G network coverage.

          • Yes! Nokia is a trusted brand among Indians. You are right.

      • Viccky Maurya

        S30+ apps are developed through MRE SDK.
        and Mediatek has already ceased MRE support so I suspect how will HMD partner with developers for further app development for S30+ devices.
        and .vxp format app runs on any other MRE phones but for running them on Nokia S30+ phones, they need to be signed. AFAIK (through Microsoft discussion forum) MS Mobile didnot had any signing tool( so how could HMD)?

        • Good point. Maybe they provide their toolkit to selected devs. For example Gameloft and Crossy road is a new thing.

  • Viccky Maurya

    I really love both New Nokia 105 and 130. Their designs are very different than earlier Nokia models (Microsoft Mobile era).
    Will get myself one of them.😀

    • The only problem with Nokia 130 is the gloss finish in front around the keypad. 🙁 That gets too many scratches.

  • Viccky Maurya
    • Rocky

      The best icon for me 😀

  • So they were making new Nokia 105 and Nokia 130 in their Indian Factories and hence the delay in Nokia 6 launch?

    • Viccky Maurya

      May be. But announcing a phone on 17 July and selling it by 19 July is very awesome 😊 even if its a feture phone. Hope they would do the same with Flagships…😀😀

  • Nokia 105 will be sold for 999/- INR and Nokia 130 will be sold for 1149/- INR

    • Viccky Maurya

      Nokia 130 INR price is not announced yet.
      Nokia 105 SS- 999/- INR
      Nokia 105 DS- 1149/- INR 😂😂

      • Amit Bhawani tweeted about this pricing. Even I was thinking that it should be of single sim and dual sim. Its an affordable price. 🙂
