HMD has announced a trio of new Nokia feature phones, including the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio, which has a built-in charging case for an included pair of true wireless earbuds. The company is far from the first with this idea (check out Servo R25 of 2019 as a recent example), but it’s remarkable to see the form factor being attempted by a more established company with global reach.

The Nokia 5710 XpressAudio looks like a regular candybar-style phone from the front, with a 2.4-inch display and a classic T9 keyboard. But on the back there is a charging compartment, revealed with the slide of a plastic cover. The device will cost £74.99 (€69) and will be available in the UK at the end of July, although there’s no word on a US release.

The true wireless earbuds offer up to four hours of music playback per charge, or 2.4 hours of talk time, and the phone itself has a long enough battery so it doesn’t sound like charging the accessories will be a big deal. HMD says the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio’s removable 1,450mAh battery provides up to six hours of talk time over 4G and up to 20 days of standby with two 4G SIM cards inserted.

Since the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio is a feature phone, there is no support for modern music streaming services such as Spotify or Apple Music. (It runs on the stripped back) Series 30 Plus Operating System used in Nokia phones for nearly a decade.) HMD rightly doesn’t do the Nokia music services of yesteryear (they were bad). Instead, the device’s playback options are a bit more old-fashioned and include the ability to play MP3s or listen to a built-in FM radio.

In addition to the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio, HMD also announced the Nokia 8210 4G feature phone (based on the classic Nokia 8210 released in 1999) and a flip phone called the Nokia 2660 Flip. The 8210 4G costs £64.99 (€59), while the Nokia 2660 Flip costs £64.99 (€69) and has an optional charging case that costs an extra £20 (€20). Both will be available at the end of July.

Finally, there’s the Nokia T10, a smaller eight-inch Android tablet compared to the 10-inch T20 released last year. Prices start at £129 (€159) for a Wi-Fi-only model with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage that will be available in August.
