But let's talk about the specifications, because this is its strongest point... if we bet on digital isolation and use the phone only for emergencies : its 2.4-inch screen has QVGA resolution and is integrated into a terminal weighing just over 100 grams. 13 cm long, 5 cm wide and 1.5 cm thick. No problem in the pocket. The icing on the cake is the removable battery with a capacity of 1450 mAh. If you leave the phone in standby mode, according to the manufacturer, it will last up to a month.
Other specifications. High-quality phones enter a new league of interesting specifications. So, while its camera is rather suggestive (only on the back and with 0.3 MP VGA video), the 3.5 mm headphone jack or the FM radio are not missing. So that you don't have to worry about possible splashes or falling on sandy ground, it is IP 52 certified.. No touch screen to operate, 12-key keyboard with controllable joypad and navigation buttons. Old fashioned.

Beware, because it does not arrive alone: it is accompanied by a more modest little brother, if possible, the Nokia 130 , which repeats the screen, battery, water and dust resistance and keyboard, but loses the camera.
Old specifications and old prices. Although the official prices have not been disclosed, it can be expected to be in the cheapest price category on the market, an example being the Nokia C150, which can be found for example on Amazon for 35 euros, which is ridiculous. price compared to the current flagship trend. Although yes, its advantages are also light years away.
The third incarnation of the Nokia 130 includes a music bonus, represented by a larger speaker on the back and a music shortcut that makes it half fake phone, half MP3 player. The MP3 that can be saved on the MicroSD card is a maximum of 32 GB, although you can also listen to the radio, as it has an FM radio and a headphone jack.
As a re-release, the 2023 Nokia 130 Music resembles the original Nokia 130 and not so much the more rounded 2017 version (which, however, had a camera, which is missing this year). The rectangular design with rounded edges and numeric keypad is retained, but the screen increases to 2.4 inches and has a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. It's an old-fashioned feature phone, so it only has a few apps and not a basic system like KaiOS like the other terminals of the brand. That is, there is no WhatsApp in it.
Commenting on the launch, Ravi Kunwar, Vice President, HMD Global India and APAC said: As we introduce the new Nokia 130 Music and Nokia 150 to the world, we are delighted to offer phones that truly stand out. With a new design and rich music features, an improved battery for longer talk time and a user-friendly design, the Nokia 130 Music and Nokia 150 embody the essence of lasting connections and convenience. These phones demonstrate our commitment to providing reliable and innovative devices that improve the lives of our customers.
Its advantages include a large speaker and a flashlight function, despite the lack of a camera. The 1450 mAh battery can last up to a month or up to 20 hours of talk time without going through the charger.
