Nokia 130, an Ultra Affordable Phone, Now Available in Pakistan

Microsoft Devices today announced the availability of Nokia 130 in Pakistan, a feature phone aimed at first time phone buyers and those who want to keep a solid back-up phone for their communication needs.

Priced at just PKR 2,850, the Nokia 130 combines the everyday essentials first-time mobile phone buyers expect:  a handy device with reliability and mobile entertainment they want.

With a built-in video player, music player with up to 46-hours continuous playback on a single charge and everyday essentials such as a flashlight, FM radio and USB charging, the Nokia 130 can be the choice for the “mobile first” world.

The Nokia 130 is an ideal handset for first-time mobile phone buyers, or for people seeking a reliable back-up phone to complement their existing smartphone. It’s built to last battery life of 26 days’ standby for the Dual SIM device.


Considering that more than 300 million people buy phones from this price category alone, Nokia 130 is aimed for a relatively huge audience.

“As demand in the affordable mobile segment continues to grow, Microsoft remains committed to delivering market-leading mobile innovation at each and every price point,” said Kamran Masood Niazi, Communications Manager, Microsoft Devices Pakistan.

He further added that: “Billions of people have yet to experience a mobile phone, while at the same time there is increasing demand for reliable back-up phones in both mature and high-growth markets. With handsets like the Nokia 130, we see tremendous potential to deliver the experience of a ‘mobile-first’ world to people seeking their first device, and we continue to invest in ultra-affordable devices that will introduce people to a ‘cloud-first’ world through Microsoft services such as Bing, and OneDrive.”

Nokia 130 promises to deliver hours of entertainment with the built-in video player which offers up to 16 hours of playback for video stored on a microSD card, MP3 player and FM radio. With support for expandable microSD storage up to 32GB, alongside the Bluetooth-enabled SLAM application and USB connectivity, it also makes sharing digital content easy, without the need for an Internet connection.

The Nokia 130 will be available in select markets including Pakistan, India, China, Indonesia, Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, Vietnam and the Philippines.

  • Because Nokia has no other way to earn money “D By the way, it is a good phone on this price.

    • But these phones are made by Microsoft. And before you say anything else and embarrass yourself further, let me inform you that a few weeks ago when they announced two new Lumia devices, their stocks skyrocketed to highest ever in the company’s history. Also they just raised their dividend by 11%.

      • Thanks for informing!! Indeed, Microsoft is multi-billionaire company which is spending million of dollars on TV advertisement for its mobile promotion. That’s why, Lumia becomes popular..!! To buy Minecraft is a piece of cake for Microsoft man! Have you remembered, Bill Gates wanted to buy Whatapps, but Facebook got it first at 19 billion $..!!

  • After learning the news of cell phone blast off in Pakistan while it was in use which was the first ever incident of its kind happened in Karachi, my question is are cheap cell
    phones really safe to use?

    • My English teacher has a Nokia 1100 phone as well as Samsung Galaxy S4. He uses Nokia at college while Galaxy at home :D

    • No, not at all are they safe…. They can blast anytime while you are holding them near to your ear & even if they don’t blast, their horrible nuclear radiations can cause Brain Tumors & Cancers within a few weeks. Millions died due to these cheap phones ……

      It literally blows off my mind when I see people dreading cell phone radiations :P … Guys, these are not different from the light waves or the heat waves but are of much lower frequencies….

      • I agreed but who understand this, people here can live by spending less for pure drinking water, go through hours of loading shedding & eating unhygenic food but they can;t live without cell phones.

  • I purchased it yesterday from Hafeez Centre, Lahore, in 2700 PKR. It has been a very good cell so far with very good battery life. I also liked it light weight. No problem so far. If I face any problem, I will put it here.

      • I don’t have any issue with that as well. Because I have always been using a dumphone in last 6 years.

        • but what about their battery timing as they claim 26days of stand-by
          which if it gives atleast 13 days on normal use its a welcome from me

    • Nabeel i am using nokia 108 as well since last one year but i faced some issues regarding messaging my phone sends empty text during conversation and even it doesn’t let me know while it is sending empty texts i just want to know does this phone also has this kind of issue or not..? and its locking pattern is also same or like an old nokia phones..?
