Nokia quietly unveils the Nokia 225 – a budget feature phone that spills nostalgia
The Nokia 225 is quite similar to the Nokia 220, which got unveiled back at MWC 2014. It has the same clean, classic candy bar design. Still, the 225 is slightly bigger and heavier, yet thinner at the same time. The 262k LCD display has been upped from 2.4 to 2.8 inches, but the resolution is still 240 x 320 pixels. This results in a mediocre pixel density of 142ppi, which is more than enough for such a feature phone. As a side comparison, one of Samsung's latest tablets, the Galaxy Tab4 10.1 comes with a pixel density of 149ppi.
Hardware-wise, the Nokia 225 sports a microSD slot and a 2MP camera on its back, while a 1,200mAh battery provides power. Nokia claims that the battery provides roughly 36 days of standby, 21 hours of talk time, and the impressive 49 hours of music playback. If you decide to browse the web on the small display of the Nokia 225, you can do so for up to 7.5 hours. Oh, and it has a flashlight, as well!
The Nokia 225 is running on the outdated Series 30+ mobile platform. Nevertheless, this new Finnish phone comes with Facebook and Twitter preloaded, while the browser of choice for the handset is the Nokia Xpress Browser, which most Asha and Windows Phone devices also sport.
Nokia reveals that the Nokia 225 will come in single-SIM and dual-SIM variations. Both versions will be priced at $53 (EUR 39) before taxes and will be available in Q2 2014 in select markets.
