Phnom Penh, Cambodia, 4 August 2017 – HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced a new, refreshed third generation Nokia 105 is available in Cambodia at an unbeatable $17.50. With well over 200 million Nokia 105s sold to date around the world, this award winning handset now features an all new sculpted design, outstanding battery life, and improved usability thanks to its larger screen size and new tactile island keymat. All of these enhancements come at an even lower price than before, making it more affordable than ever to get connected. With more than 1.3 billion feature phone users around the world, many from markets in Asia and Africa, the reliability and excellent value the Nokia 105 offers is set to ensure yet more people around the world can get connected.
Designed to take on everyday life
Clearly inspired by the Nokia phone design heritage, the new contoured style of the Nokia 105 makes it a superb fit for your hand with a beautiful, natural shape. Featuring inherent colour throughout its polycarbonate casing, minimising the visual impact of knocks and bumps, the Nokia 105 is built to take on everyday life, giving you the quality, reliability and robust design you would expect from a Nokia phone. The new island keymat features separated keys for improved usability, and the larger 1.8-inch screen delivers a better viewing experience when playing favourite games, like Snake Xenzia, which comes preloaded.
Taking full advantage of the larger screen, the Nokia 105 also comes preloaded with two try and buy games – Doodle Jump and Crossy Road.
With up to 15.7 hours talk time and a month long standby, the Nokia 105 lets you talk from sunrise to sunset on just one charge. And with enough storage space for up to 500 text messages and up to 2,000 contacts, you’ll have all your essentials in your pocket.
The Nokia 105 also features the ever popular LED torchlight – simply press the up key twice to quickly turn the torch on and off.
“We understand that people who are looking for great feature phones are motivated by different needs. But when it comes to phone features the needs are the same; long battery life, robust build quality, and high quality voice functionality,” commented Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global. “Add to that classic, timeless looks and you have what is simply a great phone – the Nokia 105.”
“With more than 4 billion people remaining offline and unable to benefit from the social and economic development opportunities of the internet, simply getting connected by voice and text is still such an important step for many people around the world,” commented Sandeep Gupta, Regional Manager Thailand and Emergin Asia, HMD Global. “More than 400 million feature phones were sold globally in 2016. We cannot underestimate the need and benefit of being connected and we are dedicated to delivering devices that can enable many people around the world to expand their horizon.”
Available in Dual SIM variants, the Nokia 105 also features an inbuilt FM Radio and charges using a standard Micro USB cable (USB 2.0).
Retailing at $17.50 for the dual SIM and $16.50 for single SIM in Cambodia, the Nokia 105 will be available in blue, white and black – each colour with a matte finish.
