A photo has become available in the Hungarian media showing the mobile phone of the president of the Hungarian Parliament, László Kövér, which is an old Nokia 6310 device. The phone of the Fidesz president of the Hungarian Parliament was shared by Szilárd Németh (Parliamentary State Secretary of the Ministry of Defense) on his social media page, on which it is clear that László Kövér uses a mobile phone that is even older than that of Viktor Orbán - Hungary's Prime Minister. His Nokia 6310 was launched 21 years ago, while the prime minister's was launched in 2009.

According to the expert interviewed by the paper, the speaker's device does not have internet access, nor does it have a camera, but it is practical and durable, with a battery that lasts at least a week with normal use, which is easily replaceable and can be easily removed from the device at any time for safety reasons. In terms of eavesdropping, this Nokia phone is also the most ideal from the point of view of a member of the government or the president of the national assembly.

The chairman of a public meeting anywhere in the world has to take into account the possible security factors that a new or in this case an old mobile phone may contain. As we know, I think many of you have already read about it, that the old push-button, so-called classic, Nokia phones cannot be tapped, or hidden tracking, eavesdropping, or monitoring programs can be hidden on them because of their old type and operating system. The Nokia 6310 is Nokia's first mobile phone with Bluetooth connection (version 1.1), not only does it have Symbian OS, Wap connectivity (old internet protocol) and it is Nokia's first tri-band GSM / GPRS, GSM 900, GSM 1800, It also has a phone with GSM 1900 connection options. Note that a network spans multiple channels within the above-mentioned bands (X,Y) Nokia 6310 became known to the whole world as a business mobile phone, which was announced on March 15, 2001 and released at the end of the year as the successor to the Nokia 6210.

From former US President Donald Trump and current US President Joe Biden to members of the British royal family to former Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, many are iPhone fans. But Vladimir Putin, for example, is not a fan of high-tech, he uses an interception-proof MTS Glonass 945 mobile phone, and former German Chancellor Angela Merkel still owns a slide-out Nokia with a completely ordinary subscription contract. Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson didn't care about security either, he had a Huawei P20, but his private phone number was public for 15 years.
