This model also offers a 16MB RAM, only 0.3 megapixel cameras (rear with flash), FM radio and a battery of 1,020 mAh. As you can see, this is an extremely basic device that reminds the Nokia makes some years before it is put fashionable smartphones and phablets. The Nokia 216 will be available next October 24 in India at a price of 30 euro.

The Nokia 216 is one of those phones that well going to remind the terminals that we had a while ago, when we thought the phone would not evolve as it has done. Its design is simple and colorful; with a rear part on the camera with flash and the logo of Nokia are the main protagonists. On the front part we appreciate a small display, of 2.4 inches with a QVGA resolution (320 x 240) and a physical keyboard with a four-direction center button. It will be available in several colors: white, black and light blue. All of them with a glossy finish.

The new Nokia phone has a memory of only 16 MB and storage with the same capacity, also 16 MB, that yes, expandable using microSD cards up to 32 GB. This is therefore a consolation for those who would like to introduce many songs and files. In the photographic section it is where the Nokia 216 shows that it is a fairly basic terminal. Both the main camera as its secondary camera offers a resolution of 0.3 megapixel. The positive part is that the rear has flash, so you can be capture photo in low light conditions.

For its part, the Nokia 216 also includes bluetooth, but little more can be done beyond calling and texting. In addition, the device has the S30 platform, so you can enjoy the Opera mini browser. Of course, keep in mind that the connection would be via GPRS; so that the load could take a long time to respond in addition would not provide support for Java or WhatsApp applications, so its usefulness is drastically reduced.

Finally, note that the Nokia 216 features FM radio, 3.5 mm headphone jack and 1,020 mAh battery, which, according to the company, promises up to 24 days standby and 18 hours talk time. Although it has been announced that, the new Nokia 216 will not arrive on the market until next October 24. The terminal, which will go on sale at a price of about 30 euro to change, is intended for emerging countries, where Nokia is a classic. The India will therefore be the first country where it will be marketed.
