Despite the shrinking feature phone market worldwide, Nokia seems to be betting big on its new range of colorful and affordable entry-level feature phones. After launching the 105 feature phone, the company has now unveiled two new phones in the same segment the 106 and 107 – both of which follow a similar design, feature and color pattern as seen on the 105. And like the latter, both of the newbies will offer a long running battery backup. The Finnish company has introduced 106 with single-SIM support and 107 with dual-SIM support.

The Nokia 106 is introduced mainly to cater to those demanding for a long-lasting and promising battery backup, and as per claims by the company it offers up to 35 days of standby time. The 107, on the other hand, is launched for the music lovers and comes with dual-SIM compatibility.
Feature-wise, both the phones endorse a 1.8-inch TFT QQVGA (160×128 pixels) display and run on Nokia s S30 platform. For entertainment, both the phones come with an FM radio, but lack a camera. Nokia has introduced the phones with dust and spill resistant keyboards to avoid accidental damages.
Besides these, the Nokia 107 houses a 1,020mAh battery to offer 12.7 hours of talk time, 34.8 hours of music playback time and 24 days of stand-by time with dual-SIM. The Nokia 106 comes with a relatively smaller battery at 800mAh, but promises to offer 9.9 hours of talk time and a stand-by time of 35 days. The 107 comes a microSD card slot that can accommodate microSD cards up to 16GB and there is nothing being mentioned about a memory card slot on the 106.
In terms of pricing, the company has launched the Nokia 107 for $25 and the Nokia 106 for $23 which excludes taxes and subsidies. These will be first launched in China by September, though their availability in India and other parts of the world is uncertain at the moment.
