Nokia has introduced a new, simple phone that boasts a super-efficient battery. The Nokia 105, which costs just €15 ($20), can provide up to 12.5 hours of talk time and up to 35 days on standby from a single charge.

The phone, while affordable, doesn’t skimp on design. It features a 1.45″ bright color screen, clear menus and a bold body available in black or cyan, which is consistent with Nokia’s brand identity.

The phone is described as “the ideal device for the first-time phone buyer” and could be used in the developing world or as an emergency, backup phone. The Nokia 105 is built to last, with its one-piece pillowed keypad that is both dustproof and splashproof.

It also features an FM radio, speaking clock, five alarms, flashlight, and up to five pre-loaded games. The phone is due to start rolling out in Q1 of this year. You can check out the Nokia 105 in the video below:
