Nokia has launched slew of features phones and continues to do so. However, a new report suggests the company could finally use Android for one of its affordable phones. That’s, right, a Nokia feature phone running on Android has made its appearance on the internet this week. And that’s not all, the phone has Google Assistant and we can see Maps also built into the device. Also Read - Flipkart launches Nokia Media Streamer in India at Rs 3,499; check details

Feature phones have usually relied on less power-intensive hardware and software. Making them a reliable workhorse, with battery lasting for days or even weeks in some cases. But using Android on a feature phone has its pros and cons. While you will get all the latest smartphone-centric features, you also pick up their battery constraints.

The smart feature phone market was expected to become mainstream after the launch of JioPhone. But trends suggest, the buying segment for such devices haven’t found its value. But HMD Global has publicly talked about its plans to launch affordable 4G devices. And this has led us to believe the Android-powered feature phone could be a move in that direction. So, we’re hoping to hear more about this interesting product from the company in the coming months.
