Nokia feature phone code-named RM-1187 gets certified in China
Last month we heard rumors of two upcoming Nokia-branded Android smartphones with 2K screens, IP68 certification and Snapdragon 820 chips on board. This news, naturally, got fans of the brand excited for what the near future may hold for the former king of the mobile industry. Apart from working on high-end devices, however, it seems like the β€œnew” Nokia will keep in the tradition of yore, and continue working on cheaper devices, including lower-end smartphones and even feature phones, as suggested by a new TENAA certification.

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.

The android phones that you will get at that price will be laggy as hell.. 512mb of ram , super slow processor , low battery backup .. at the end of the day , it will neither be a good android phone nor it will be a good feature phone ..

Why did you just compare a smartphone to a feature phone? Oh wait you must be one of those who think they are not relevant anymore...

After using smartphone for the past 5 years, and using Nokia feature phones before that, I can clearly see the need of a decent Nokia Feature Phone. Everyone must have atleast one.
