Nokia is all over the news these days courtesy its huge comeback being staged by HMD Global, the Finnish company that has acquired exclusive rights to manufacture and sell ‘Nokia’-branded devices once again. The company is all but confirmed to launch a flurry of smartphones and Tablets that will see the resurgence of Nokia in an avatar which is smarter and more in-line with the current trends in technology.

However, elsewhere, even Nokia’s iconic lineup of feature phones are poised for a comeback. The Nokia 150 which was launched last year in December by HMD Global is now being stocked by Carphone Warehouse, an UK-based refurbished phone retailer.

"The arrival of the Nokia 150 marks the beginning of an exciting new partnership, one that will see even more Nokia handsets made available to our customers. We're also hearing they've got some exciting new announcements to make out at MWC later this month," Carphone Warehouse MD Jeremy Fennel told Lowndown.

The phone is being sold in the UK in unlocked condition for 34.99 GBP (roughly Rs 2932) while the carrier-locked variants under pay-as-you-go schemes are also available.

The Nokia 150 features a polycarbonate shell packing a 2.4-inch QVGA screen and VGA camera with LED flash. It also features a built-in FM radio and an MP3 player and boasts of a battery-life of up to 22 hours with 31 days of standby for single SIM and 25 days for dual SIM. That’s more in line with the Nokia we know and love!
