HMD Global is playing the nostalgia card again. The company has introduced the refreshed version of Nokia 105 and Nokia 220 feature phones that come with support for 4G. The technology company has said that the two newly-launched feature phones will be going on sale next month. The revamped version of Nokia 105 is made of polycarbonate and runs Nokia Series 30+ operating system. It will be available in three colour variants. On the other hand, Nokia 2220 4G comes with a completely new design, however, some of the specifications are the same as the original Nokia 220.
We should mention that the original Nokia 105 was launched in 2013 and it is already a popular name among fans. The handset featured a 1.45-inch TFT screen that had an aspect ratio of 128×128 pixels. It used to run Nokia Series 30 operating system and housed an 800mAh battery that was claimed to last for 35 days on standby. To recall, in 2015, Microsoft had released a new version of the Nokia 103 that has Series 30+ operating system and came with beefed-up storage. In 2017, the first reboot of the Nokia 105 came when HMD Global re-introduced the phone with a new design and some key tweaks. So this makes the latest version of the device the fourth generation of Nokia 105.
Coming to Nokia 220, it was first launched in 2014 and the 4G version of the device is its first-ever refresh. As the name suggests, the revamped version of the handset has support for 4G. Other changes have been made by the company to Nokia 220 4G as well.
