Two Nokia feature phones TA-1010 and TA-1034 spotted in TENAA

Given the rising consumer demands about quality smartphones around the world, Nokia is all set to bring back its essence through its standard feature phones. Lately, the company running Nokia, HMD Global sent two such feature phones, namely, the TA-1010 and TA-1034 for testing to TENAA. These phones are supposedly a perfect fit for simple phone usage and not flashy features, and that's what sets them apart.

HMD Global is all set to launch two new feature phones that are high on simplicity and thought to be minimal in their prices. Recently, Chinese regulatory agency TENAA was seen giving certification to 2 new feature phones from Nokia. The phones bearing the model number TA-1010 and TA-1034 are expected to stand low on features. The TA-1010, for example, doesn't even sport a camera. The case is a little different for the TA-1034 though, which was listed to sport a rear camera and dual-SIM setup.

Interestingly, the TA-1010 model is said to be the successor of Nokia 105, whereas, TA-1034 looks similar to Nokia 130. Nokia's Android-powered smartphones, namely, the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 (all 4G phones) were recently launched in India running on an unmodified version of Android 7.0.

The Finnish phone company sees its success very important in the South Asian markets and knows the likes of its customers. In the wake of similarity in the supposed old and new models of phones, the prices are not expected to vary much between them. As assumptions are making rounds, there could be a possibility that the phones don't sport the 3G setup!

Feature phone category globally has a significant customer base even at the present times, considering which HMD Global is giving the feature phones, a go-ahead. China is a very crucial market to write Nokia's success, when it comes to feature phones, understanding the fact that the new models were submitted to TENAA for testing.

In addition to the 2 new Nokia feature phones spotted in TENAA, many are still keeping their eyes on the rumored high-end Android smartphone, TA-1004, or Nokia 9.
