The new Nokia 222 is a $37 feature phone that can last through about an entire day of phone calls
The Nokia 222 will not impress anyone through its hardware specs, although its affordable price of just $37 doesn't really recommend it as anything but a backup device in developed markets or as an affordable communication device in emerging countries. The feature phone runs Nokia Series 30+ as the operating system and comes bundled with a few apps that make use of the 2.5G data connection, such as the Opera Mini browser, Facebook, or Twitter.
The Nokia 222 comes with a 2.4-inch display running at a resolution of 120 by 160 pixels. Under the hood, Microsoft fitted in an 1100mAh battery that is claimed to last through 20 hours of talk time and more than 20 days of idle standby. It's easy to see how the battery life of this handset is a major strong point for users who spend their days talking on the phone.
In the camera department, the Nokia 222 comes with a 2MP camera on the back. Photos taken at this resolution will certainly lack the details that most current-generation smartphone cameras can capture, but the camera could come in handy for capturing the occasional moment.
Both the single-SIM and the dual-SIM versions of the Nokia 222 will launch in September in various markets across the globe. As far as the color options go, the feature phone will be available in either black or white with matching keyboard colors.
