The latest Nokia feature phone takes battery life to the next level – the Nokia 106 is claimed to last 21 days.

Though it’s rated to offer 15.7 hours of talk time on a single charge of its humble (and removable) 800mAh battery but as nobody talks for so long, the standby time is rated at 21 days.

We are not sure if it qualifies to be a brick phone but Nokia claims it’s built tough. The polycarbonate body is grey black through and through, not just on the surface, meaning that scratches become less noticeable.

Meanwhile, its 1.8in (160 x 120 pixels) screen is in colour and you can play classic games like Snake and buy more titles like Nitro Racing, Danger Dash and Tetris.

The Nokia 106 has 4MB of storage, allowing it to save 2,000 contacts and 500 messages. Yes, that’s SMSes.

It also has a meagre 4MB RAM but that’s plenty for the Nokia Series 30+ operating system.

The phone is fairly small and light, measuring 11.11 x 4.95 x 1.44cm and weighing 70.2g with battery.

Nokia has not announced when the phone will be made available in Malaysia but it sells for R$1,590 (RM101) in Russia.
