HMD Global has just launched a new fleet of devices which includes a tablet and feature phones in another low-profile launch. The Nokia T10 tablet joins the Nokia T20 tablet to expand Nokia Mobile’s portfolio of tablet devices. Similarly, the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio and Nokia 8210 expand Nokia’s portfolio of candy bar phones while the Nokia 2660 flip joins the flip family.
The Nokia T10 tablet is an 8-inch tablet with Netflix HD support
Nokia Mobile introduced the Nokia T10 tablet which features an 8-inch HD (720p) display making it easier to carry around. The tablet is powered by the Unisoc T606 chipset along with certification for Widevine L1, ensuring HD playback in apps such as Netflix and Amazon Prime. There are dual stereo speakers and support for OZO playback for an immersive audio experience. The storage options include up to 64GB of onboard storage and up to 4GB of RAM.
The Nokia T10 features 2 cameras – an 8MP shooter at the back and a 2MP at the front, both of which may not be adequate for taking photos, however, it varies per a user’s needs. A 5250 mAh battery is giving the power juice to the display and the CPU – which should last moderately well given the smaller form factor and an HD display.
Nokia T10 assures a recallable promise of 2 OS upgrades and 36 monthly security updates during its life span. However, I’m certain that HMD Global will skip around 12 of these security updates over the time period by delaying them or entirely skipping them. Anyways, the Nokia T10 comes on Android 12 and will be upgraded to Android 14 during its software support period.
Nokia 5710 XpressAudio – a phone with enough room to fit TWS earphones
Phones aren’t cool in the modern world, however, HMD Global is here to play the game a little differently. The Nokia 5710 XpressAudio aims to provide a good backup to somebody fond of music and looking for a digital detox. The 4G-enabled feature phone features dedicated music controls and packs dual speakers which should hopefully provide loud-enough music to be used in small groups.
And when you’re alone on your journey, there are built-in TWS earfbuds right inside the phone. Just slide down the cover on the back and you’ll get access to fully-charged TWS for some private music and calls. The Nokia 5710 XpressAudio runs on S30+ OS and includes support for Dual-SIM, 4G VoLTE, FM Radio, and Bluetooth 5.0. It can support up to 32GB of external storage (using a MicroSD card) to store a large variety of audio files.
Nokia 2660 Flip – for the elderly and everybody else
Nokia is probably the only major brand that is still committed to feature phones, especially flip phones. The Nokia 2660 Flip is another new entry into the Nokia flip phones portfolio with elderly people being a special target. To suit the target, the phone has loud audio, is compatible with hearing aids and provides a big-enough (2.6-inch) display and keypad with big buttons for easy typing. It also includes a dedicated emergency key to reach important people in case of an emergency.
Nokia 8210 4G – the modern candy bar!
The last and my favorite Nokia phone as part of today’s launch is the Nokia 8210 4G. The reborn classic comes with a 2.6-inch placed nicely on a sleek design and they rightly call it “Inspired by yesterday, built for tomorrow”. It comes with a 1450 mAh removable battery and has support for 4G, an MP3 player, and wireless FM Radio. If that’s not enough, it also comes with the classic Snake game built-in for that classic Nokia feel.
Is Nokia a brand with the nicest feature phones?
Whatever Nokia Mobile is doing, they are definitely doing a good job at making some of the nicest looking feature phones in different form factors. Probably all of their design capability is being put to use for feature phones while ODMs fully handle their portfolio of smartphones. If somebody is on the lookout for a feature phone, they should definitely check out what the Nokia brand has to offer. The same cannot be said for smartphones though which is a pity!
