While smartphones have become the defacto way in terms of communications, there are plenty of users around the world who might not have the money for a smartphone, which explains why 10 years after Apple revitalized the smartphone industry, there are still feature phones being produced and sold.

In fact HMD Global has recently announced their latest device in the form of the Nokia 106. As you can see in the image above, the Nokia 106 is pretty straightforward in terms of its design. It’s not exactly feature-rich, but what it does have going for itself is its battery life, where according to HMD, it boasts 15.7 hours of battery that will last the user all day.

Note that the 15.7 hours is for active use, meaning that if you don’t use your phone that much during the day, there is a chance that it could end up lasting you for the next few days, but then again your mileage may vary. The phone will feature a 1.8-inch 160×120 display, will be capable of storing up to 2,000 contacts, and retain as many as 500 SMS messages. The Nokia 106 is expected to launch in various markets around the world, with pricing varying between markets, but unfortunately the US is not one of them.
