The all-new Nokia 216 Dual SIM is powered by Nokia Series 30+, meaning that it’s neither an Android nor a Windows phone. It’s meant to be for someone who doesn’t want to spend too much on a mobile phone, but don’t want to sacrifice on entertainment. Both its main and front cameras are VGA cameras but interestingly enough, both sides have LED flash, which means that you should be able to capture some decent selfies, albeit at low resolution.
It has the ability to play music, videos, as well as tuning in to the radio. You can store all your media files via MicroSD, which the phone supports up to 32GB. As an added bonus, it’s also capable of connecting with Bluetooth headsets so you can listen to your music wirelessly if you wish to do so.
Microsoft rated the Nokia 216 Dual SIM’s battery life at 18 hours of talktime and 19 days of standby, which is pretty long but keep in mind, the results you face may differ. In case you’re wondering, the phone utilizes a polycarbonate shell body.
Vijay Thangavelu, Country Sales Lead of Microsoft Mobile Device Sales, said:
Microsoft’s feature phones are a range of trusted mobile devices that empower people with mobility and the ability to connect, discover and achieve more. They are long lasting, functional, and beautifully designed – and give you more for less. The Nokia 216 Dual SIM is our newest addition to the Microsoft feature phone family that offer the affordable connectivity features people need, combined with the entertainment features they want.
The Nokia 216 Dual SIM is available from today onwards at a retail price of RM169, and it’s available in black, white, and blue. For the full specifications of the device, do refer below:
