Nokia 220 4G is the latest device to join HMD Global's feature phone family. Launched in China, the feature phone is a 4G-enabled version of the Nokia 220, which was launched last year alongside the Nokia 150. The Nokia 220 4G brings 4G VoLTE support for carriers in China, along with other basic features such as an MP3 player and a physical T9 keyboard. The new feature phone is on now pre-sale in China while the shipping begins May 7.
The Nokia 220 4G feature phone comes at a price of CNY 299, which is approximately Rs 3,200. The pre-orders for the feature phone are live on Nokia Mobile Store, JD.com, and Tmall. The Nokia 220 4G comes in Black and Blue colour options.
The company is doling out a CNY 30 coupon for pre-bookings of the Nokia 220 4G. The pre-booking amount for Nokia 220 4G on Nokia Mobile Store is CNY 2.9, while Tmall and JD.com are accepting CNY 1 as a token amount. The remaining amount needs to be paid on May 7, when the sale of the smartphone begins for everyone.
HMD Global has not specified if the Nokia 220 4G will be launched in the markets outside of China.
Despite having a vivid smartphone spectrum, the feature phone portfolio of HMD Global is quite strong in markets such as India. This is why the company pays attention to the low-end segment. The Nokia 220 4G is another attempt at bringing the 4G prowess to the feature phone. The feature phone supports VoLTE, as we said, on all carriers in China. It comes in two models - a single SIM variant and a dual SIM variant.
The Nokia 220 4G comes with a 2.4-inch QVGA non-touchscreen display with a resolution of 240x320 pixels. The Nokia 220 4G is powered by the Feature OS (via NokiaMob), which is a little ambiguous. But if we were to guess, it could run on KaiOS.
Moreover, the Nokia 220 4G packs 16MB of RAM and 24MB of internal memory, along with support for a microSD card. There is a 0.3-megapixel rear camera on the feature phone. It has a 1200mAh removable battery under the hood. The Nokia 220 4G measures 121.3x52.9x13.4mm and weighs 86.5 grams. For connectivity, the Nokia 220 4G has a 3.5mm headphone jack, a MicroUSB (USB 2.0), and Bluetooth v4.2. The feature phone has a wireless FM radio and an MP3 player.
