Helsinki: Nokia launched two low-end cellphones on Tuesday, aiming to regain its footing in emerging markets. The Nokia 110 model will be sold for 35 euros and will start shipping in the second quarter.
The 112 model will be sold for 38 euros from the third quarter, the Finnish phone maker said. The company has been losing market share not just in high-end smartphones but also in cheaper, basic phones popular among customers in emerging markets.
Both devices come with Nokia Browser, which Nokia claims reduces data consumption up to 90 per cent, thereby saving time and data costs. The phones also come with a bundle of 40 games from EA. The EA games will be downloadable from Nokia Store through an icon pre-loaded on the phones.
Both phones come with dual SIM capability and Easy Swap to allow fast switch without opening up the phone.
The phones offer direct access to Twitter, Facebook and other social networks from the home page and also support email and instant messaging.

Single SIM varieties of the Nokia 110 – dubbed the Nokia 111 (which is also quad-band) and Nokia 113 – will also be available in some countries.
There is only subtle differences between the two phones in design and specifications. The Nokia 110 offers 10.5 hours talktime while the Nokia 112 offers 14 hours and 26.5 days of standby for the Nokia 110 and 35 days for the Nokia 112.
