HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has announced three new feature phones to offer an alternative for people seeking to escape technology fatigue and ‘always on’ culture.

The new feature phones cement Nokia’s legacy of unbeaten durability and battery life, a statement said.

Taking inspiration from the resilient trio of feature phones, is the durable Nokia T10 – a tablet designed for work, home and family life. It comes in an affordable, compact 8–inch package with handy capabilities. It is said to be an all-rounder – whether taking video calls from home, streaming favourite TV shows, using the second screen feature to make it an expansion of PC display or keeping the kids entertained on Google Kids Space.

Florian Seiche, CEO, HMD Global said: “Classic Nokia heritage is combined with innovation in our feature phone portfolio. This iconic range is gaining momentum as your trusted companion for all your communication needs. At the same time, we have brought our signature longevity promises to the tablet market.”

“Innovation is just as important as heritage in our range which shines through with Nokia Aquila – a feature phone built for the 21st Century. The Nokia Aquila delivers audio freedom through game-changing design.”

Sanmeet Singh Kochhar, vice president, HMD Global (MENA and India), said: “The feature phone segment is a key part of our heritage at HMD Global. We are delighted to roll out three new devices for our fans in the region who appreciate superior design and intuitive technology. We are also excited to unveil the Nokia T10 tablet, which is specially crafted to be compact and suited for today’s hybrid work culture. Both these new launches will be a welcome new addition to our portfolio in 2022.”

Nokia T10
Small but mighty, the newest Nokia tablet is durable inside and out. Its unibody polymer design and nano-textured finish hide scratches so it looks almost as good as new when you pass it down to a family member or friend. Inside, the latest Android 12 software, two years of guaranteed Android upgrades, and three years of monthly security updates future-proof the device.

It also comes with Google Entertainment Space and Google Kids Space. Meanwhile, a new range of accessories complements the smartphone’s functionality. This includes the Nokia Flip cover which handles most workplace environments and guards the entire device against bumps and scratches. It is available in dark blue or cyan.

Nokia 8210 4G
Nokia 8210 4G – a new addition to the ‘originals’ family – celebrates the iconic Nokia 8210 launched in 1999 at Paris Fashion Week. Inspired by the classic feature phone, the device turns heads by combining memorable design and signature durability with 4G, VoLTE capability, a large 2.8–inch display and intuitive user interface. It also offers weeks of standby battery like the good old days.

Nokia 5710 XpressAudio
The Nokia 5710 XpressAudio takes what people loved about the Nokia 5310 and makes it even better. A bigger battery, dedicated audio control keys, and a built-in wireless earbuds ramp up the audio experience to the next level and meet the needs of modern users. When not in use, earbuds are housed beneath a sleek slider on the back of the phone, so the user always knows where they are and charged. That, together with loud dual speakers means you can enjoy music privately or together with friends just like the artist intended with rich bass, clear highs, and natural vocals..

Nokia 2660 Flip
The flip functionality and thoughtful design of the Nokia 2660 Flip makes call handling simple by bringing the mic and earpiece closer to you. Its big display, hearing aid compatibility, battery life and big buttons are said to provide seamless experience. The dedicated emergency button provides peace of mind by allowing quick contact with your loved ones. In case the unexpected happens, five contacts will be notified, so they can ensure help is on the way.
