Nokia 216 is a new dual sim feature phone announced by Microsoft

The Nokia 216 is a new dual sim feature phone from Microsoft, and will be available in India from October 24, at Rs. 2495.


Microsoft has announced a new dual sim feature phone. This may come as a surprise for those keeping track of Nokia developments. In May this year, Microsoft licensed the Nokia brand to a previously unheard of Foxconn subsidiary called HMD Global. While HMD is planning to make Nokia branded smartphones and tablets, seems like Microsoft can still release Nokia branded feature phones. Microsoft held back the Lumia brand name, and this device seems to be a Lumia Nokia instead of a Nokia Lumia.
