MWC 2019: Nokia 210 feature phone launched alongside Nokia 1.2, Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 4.2

The Nokia 4.2 starts at $169.

Nokia 210: Price and features

The only feature phone in the list of today's launches, the Nokia 210 bares a familiar design, something we've come to expect from the company. The 210 certainly doesn't feature the latest and greatest internals but does the job of a feature phone quite well. The phone features its distinctive Nokia physical keys and also features the Opera Mini browser built-in for basic web-browsing.

For nostalgia-sake, you can still play Snake on the Nokia 210. The phone has been priced at $30 which translates to roughly Rs 2,100.

The phone comes in three colours - a basic black, a dull white shade and a peppy red colour.

Nokia 1 Plus: Price and Specifications

The Nokia 1 Plus is the successor to last year's entry-level Nokia 1. The phone offers pretty much the same as its predecessor did, running Android Pie Go edition, but this time gets a slightly larger, 5.45-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 960 pixels and a larger 2,500 mAh battery unit.

Another area where the Nokia 1 Plus sees an upgrade is the camera. The Nokia 1 Plus comes with an 8 MP rear-facing camera with autofocus and a LED flash and a 5 MP selfie snapper on the front. Nokia's also tossed in a beauty mode in there for those who love taking selfies but are on a tight budget.
