Nokia has followed the launch of the 5310 (2020) in Nepal with two new feature phones – Nokia 125 and Nokia 150 (2020). The latter is the refresh of the Nokia 150 that was launched by HMD Global in 2016. Nokia 125, on the other hand, is a slightly inexpensive variant of the Nokia 150 (2020) and comes with some limitation in terms of specs. Let’s take a look at the specs, features, price, and availability of Nokia 125 and Nokia 150 (2020) in Nepal.
Nokia 150 (2020), Nokia 125 Overview
Design and Display
Both Nokia 150 (2020) and Nokia 125 feature a 2.4-inch QVGA screen. The body is made up of polycarbonate material. In spite of similar dimensions, the Nokia 150 2020 (90.54 gm) is lighter than the 125 (91.3 g). According to Nokia, the longer design creates more space for the buttons. The buttons are big and are expected to make navigation and dialing and texting easier.
There are some differences in the design of the two devices. You can notice the keypad in the Nokia 125 pops outwards whereas it is more glued to the body in the 150. Similarly, the rest of the keys are also oriented differently in these two phones.
Nokia has not disclosed the exact SKU, but it has confirmed the processor backing the devices is from MediaTek. As far as memory is concerned, Nokia 125 and 150 (2020) come with 4MB of RAM and 4MB of internal storage.
The Nokia 150 (2020) is more of a multimedia device as it comes with an in-built MP3 player and expandable storage (via microSD card) of up to 32GB. It also comes with support for Bluetooth 3.0. Both the phones ship with the Series 30+ mobile operating system and you will enjoy classic Snake Xenzia game on both the devices.
Similarly, Nokia 150 (2020) has a camera as well. While the Nokia 125 lacks the VGA rear camera, it retains the LED flash. Users should be able to use it as a flashlight.
Battery and rest of the specs
Both feature phones get their juice from a 1020mAh battery. Nokia claims the battery offers up to 19.4 hours of talk time and up to 23.4 days of standby. The BL-5C battery is user-replaceable.
