HMD Global, new owners of the Nokia basic phone business, has announced the release of two new basic handsets named Nokia 150 and Nokia 150 Dual Sim in early 2017. These basic devices will be available without internet connectivity at a price of 26 USD. Nokia’s biggest basic phone market is in Eastern Europe and Asia, especially India.
HMD Global took over Nokia basic phone business from the hands of Microsoft earlier in December. They have also inked a deal to launch Nokia smartphones next year. HMD Global is established by Nokia bigwigs. With Microsoft finding it hard to stay in the cellphone market, Nokia’s future looked in turmoil until HMD Global stepped in.
