Nokia Brings Back the Memories with 5710 XpressAudio

If you feel tired of the modern smartphones that all look like a slab of glass HMD Global got you covered with its new nostalgic-themed feature-phones. Among which, the most interesting is the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio. 

What sets it apart from the others is a built-in compartment for TWS earbuds. This feature brings peace of mind to all the music lovers. Who are afraid to leave their favorite pair of earbuds at home.

In other specs this is a pretty average feature-phone. According to, the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio has a 2.4-inch QVGA display, a classic keyboard, replaceable 1450 mAh battery that also supports fast charging. While not huge by today’s standards. This battery allows up to 6 hours of talk time and up to 20 days of standby time. The phone  is also equipped with a dual-4G SIM card slot. It also runs on a trusty old proprietary S30+ OS, so don’t expect Spotify or YouTube Music support. Other specs include Cortex-A7 SOC, 1 GB of RAM and a MicroSD card support up to 32 GB.

In addition, there’s noise canceling (in the phone itself, not earbuds). The dual LTE standby, VOLTE support, dual speakers, FM radio and basic equalizer. For audio purposes there is a Bluetooth 5.0, and 3.5 mm headphone jack. The built-in earbuds provide up to 2.5 hours of talk. The time or up to 4 hours of music playback on a single charge.

If 5710 XpressAudio looks too extreme for you, HMD Global has also introduced 2 more devices in the “Originals” series of feature-phones.One of them is Nokia 8210 4G – a remake of an iconic Nokia 8210, launched during Paris Fashion Week in 1999. Thankfully, specs got a bump from 1999, with 2.8-inch QVGA screen, 0.3 MP Camera. The Bluetooth 5.0, MP3 player, support for MicroSD cards up to 32 GB. The  Dual-4G SIM-card slot and a removable battery. That provides up to staggering 20 days of Standby with 4G enabled on both SIMs.

Another remake is Nokia 2660 Flip that reminds of a similarly named phone from 2007. But unlike the original, it received a 1.7-inch external display. Other specs are similar to 5710 XpressAudio and 8210 4G, but in a smaller flip-phone form-factor. Nokia 2660 Flip packs the same 2.8-inch QVGA internal screen, 0.3 MP Camera, but this time with an LED flash, Bluetooth 5.0, MP3 player, MicroSD support, Dual-4G SIM-card slot and up to 20 days of battery life in Standby mode with 4G enabled.

If you’re looking for something more modern, there’s also the Nokia T10 tablet, which is a smaller version of the existing Nokia T20. Specs are nothing to write home about, but you can’t ask more from an entry-level tablet. Nokia T10 sports an 8-inch, 16:10 HD screen, 8 MP main and 2 MP front cameras, 3GB of RAM, 32 GB of Storage, expandable up to 512 GB. Connectivity-wise, we have Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi 5, and USB Type-C port. The latter provides 10W charging for the battery of undisclosed capacity. Powering this tablet is Unisoc T606 SoC and Android 12 operating system.
