Technology: Nokia is keeping the nostalgia of the ’90s alive with its latest update to its feature phones, the Nokia 130 and 150. These phones hark back to an earlier generation of technology but boast current software, making them appealing for those seeking a simple and distraction-free mobile experience.

The Nokia 150 stands out with its 2.4-inch QVGA display, a 1,450 mAh removable battery offering up to a month of standby time, and a headphone jack for music listening.

It also features a basic 0.3-MP VGA camera, reminiscent of older candy bar phones from the past. You can save your data on a MicroSD card and charge the phone using a micro USB port.

On the other hand, the Nokia 130 offers a similar screen size and removable battery but lacks a camera, making it an ideal secondary device for users who already have a smartphone with a decent camera.

Both phones are rated IP52, providing resistance to dust and water, though they are not entirely waterproof. Embracing the nostalgia, Nokia has equipped these devices with physical buttons, including a 12-key number pad and navigational buttons to navigate the operating system known as Series 30+ or S30+.

The software is tailored for these entry-level devices and even includes a revamped version of the classic Snake game, promising hours of fun.

While the Nokia 130 and 150 are primarily available abroad and have been around since 2016, this latest release represents their upgrade cycle.

As for pricing, Nokia’s parent company, HMD Mobile, is yet to disclose the details, but previous generations started at under $50 when converted from other currencies.

For those seeking a straightforward mobile experience without the complexities of a smartphone, the Nokia 130 and 150 offer an attractive and affordable option compared to aging, low-cost Android phones.
