Nokia feature phone code-named RM-1187 gets certified in China
A Nokia-branded feature phone code-named RM-1187 has been certified by China's telecommunications equipment certification center. The certification was applied for by Microsoft (China) Co Ltd., but since Microsoft sold off Nokia's feature phone business to HMD and Foxconn, this may very well be the first HMD Nokia to hit the market.
The Nokia RM-1187 will have a 2.4-inch 240 x 320 screen, 16 MB of RAM, a 1025 mAh battery, and 16 MB of internal storage, expandable with SD cards of up to 64 GB. The TENAA specs sheet suggests two cameras with unknown sensor size, an LED flash on the back, as well as dual SIM support. The RM-1187 will come in three colors – black, white and blue – and will measure at 4.64 x 1.96 x 0.53 in (118 x 50 x 13.5 mm), weighing 2.91 oz (82.6 g).
The first Nokia-branded feature phone since the Microsoft-HMD-Foxconn deal will likely feature a modest price tag and will be geared toward developing markets, as is the scenario with such devices. Whether this one will ever see a global launch is questionable.
