Amid a sea of corporate-sponsored advertisements for its latest mobile phone, Nokia is putting its own spin on the idea of ‘burying the baby’.
The Finnish handset maker unveiled its new Nokia Free-Flow mobile phone in Singapore this week, with a price tag that is expected to be more than double the price of the first-generation Nokia handset.
It is one of several Nokia devices to hit the market this year, including the company’s new smartphone Nokia 15 and a Nokia Lumia 920.
The new phone features a 4-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
The phone also comes with a fingerprint sensor, which Nokia claims is the most accurate and secure on the market.
While the new phone is priced at $699 for the 4- and 32-megapixel models, Nokia says the device will be priced at just $599 for the 64-megabyte model.
The price tag does not include an array of Nokia software, including Nokia Music, Nokia Maps, Nokia Hub, Nokia Voice, Nokia Control, Nokia Weather, Nokia Sports and Nokia Photos.
It also does not come with any third-party software, although Nokia said that will be coming later this year.
Nokia says that the Free-flow phone will be available to buy online in Singapore on November 25.
