Nokia 103 Is the Cheapest Phone on the Market, Gets Priced at 16 EUR (21 USD)

Nokia has silently released the cheapest phone ever launched on the market. We’re not sure what exactly the handset vendor put inside this device, but Nokia 103 has been priced at just 16 EUR (about 21 USD).

Although the bar phone has just been announced in Nigeria, it’s likely that the Finnish company will release the Nokia 103 in other emerging markets.

According to IntoMobile, citing Benedict Evans, the Nokia 103 costs only 16 EUR (about 21 USD) before taxes and subsidies, which makes it one of the cheapest phones on the market, if not really the cheapest.

Nokia has yet to officially announce the availability of the phone, but press photos have already been published on its site, along with the handset’s data sheet.

So, what to expect from such a low-priced mobile phone? Well, not much. Nokia 103 features a bar form factor and is based on the Series 30 UI. 

Besides the standard keypad, Nokia 103 comes with two contextual keys, the usual Accept and End calls keys, as well as a big D-pad button that helps users navigate through menus.

The phone measures 107.2 x 45.1 x 15.3mm and weighs around 77g (battery included), which puts the phone into the extremely light category. 

However, given the cheap plastic that the phone is made of, this doesn’t come as a surprise. On the positive side, Nokia 103 is dust proof.

The phone comes with calendar, alarm clock, FM radio, integrated flashlight, time tracker and pre-paid tracker, as well as some pre-loaded games. It also supports up to 500 contact entries and has enough storage for up to 250 SMS.

Nokia 103 packs a very small 1.36-inch black and white display, and drains energy from an 800 mAh Li-Ion battery, which is rated by the manufacturer for up to 27 days of standby time or up to 11 hours of talk time.
