HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has brought in the Philippines the reimagined version of the well-loved Nokia Xpress Music phone, the Nokia 5310.
The new Nokia 5310 Xpress Music sticks to its purpose of a music smartphone with an MP# player and an FM radio, complemented with dual front-facing speakers to carry your music everywhere you go.
It also carries the classic look of the original Nokia 5310 with a distinctive two-tone colorway, accentuated with a rounded design and curved display glass. Of course, this feature phone also has the numeric keypad with a five-way navigation key.
Sticking to what most Nokia smartphones are known for, the new Nokia 5310 comes with a battery that’s made to last up to 30 days on standby mode. This device also comes with either a single or dual SIM option.
According to HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas, the launch of the new Nokia 5310 follows the positive response from the public on the Nokia Originals family.
“Our initiative to revitalise the Originals family has been a great success with our fans. We have received an overwhelmingly positive reaction to our entire Originals family, including our most recent Nokia 2720 Flip. We’re very excited to be able to keep the trend going with the Nokia 5310, our latest Originals family member. Feature phones play an important role in the mobile market, with 400 million consumers still buying a 2G phone for their mobility needs. They seek an option that offers reliability and durability combined with ease of use. The Nokia 5310 offers all of these with an extra dose of design,” Sarvikas said.
Meanwhile, HMD Global General Manager for Philippines, Hong Kong, and Thailand Sancho Chak said that the Nokia 5310 is the company’s way to bring a device for people from all walks of life.
“At HMD Global, we make sure that we have a phone for every walk of life and to fit the interests of fans. Filipinos love music and they enjoy listening to their favourite songs through their phones, which is why we decided to bring back one of the all-time favourite Nokia feature phones of Filipinos – the Nokia 5310. This Nokia feature phone offers wireless FM radio with dedicated music buttons and powerful battery life that will let Filipino fans enjoy their favourite tunes all day – showcased in a retro classic design refreshed for the new age,” Chak said.
