Both follow the similar design of the 105 with Lumia-esque colors and polycarbonate build material.  The phones run your standard S30 (I assume?) and have the usual stopwatch, clock, snake, calendar, radio and more.

The Nokia 107 is a dual sim variant with a micro SD card slot (up to 16 gb) to help listen to more music, which brings us to the music playback times; which clocks in at 34.8 hours! That’s almost a day and a half!

Nokia 107 has a MP3 player, Micro SD card memory can be extended up to 16G, storing 3000 songs to mention, music playback time is up to 34.8 hours, than the average MP3 is also durable, so you can enjoy a private trip music stations.

The standby times are also impressive, as is standard for Nokia’s feature phone set:

Nokia 106 standby time of up to 35 days, the Nokia 107 up to 24 days.

The phones have a suggested retail price of $23 and $25 respectively (the 105 had a suggested retail price of $20), with expected arrival in Q3 2013 to China (with no details on worldwide availability yet).

Nokia 106 suggested retail price of $ 23, the Nokia 107 is $ 25 (excluding taxes and subsidies). Both phones are expected in the third quarter.

  • Svedu

    They should bring these 20$ phones to Finland. I would buy one.

    • jiipee

      What I would be interested in: these with 3/4G and tethering.

      • ekeluo

        You, my f friend, are a mind reader! :-)

        • D Harries

          You mean – a dongle?

          There’s no point in these phones having 4G. They do calls and text. That’s it

    • Janne

      That would actually require selling current Nokia products at the flagship store.

      They wouldn’t do that.

      • Marc Aurel

        ;-)

        I haven’t been to the Helsinki store lately. It’s primarily symbolic anyways, since Nokia phones have an excellent availability in Finland in both operator and general electronics stores. Most of the cheap feature phones are actually sold through the latter, I believe, since nobody buys them on contract. Elisa Shopit stores do not even sell 2G phones.

    So the 20 euro Nokia 107 will have a Micro-SD slot, but the 690 euro Lumia 1020, which makes large images that need the space, does not have one.

    • edi_opteron

      Please Ask Joe belfiore and the WP team….

      • Viipottaja

        As in why does Nokia decided to put a micro SD slot in some Lumias and not in others? Yup, WP team/Belfiore would be the obvious source to ask.

      • viktor von d.

        trolling level — master
        what does belfiore have to do with the lack of an sd card in the 1020? oh i forget, it’s microsofts fault cause they rule nokia with an iron fist these days

      • Janne

        Joe Belfiore is too busy buying Nokia to help.

    • v.s.i

      Yes, because a card slot clearly costs a lot more than $10 and thus affording to pay $XYZ you can’t shelve out another $X to include such an advanced piece of modern mobile technology in your purchase.

      /flagship logic (LG G2, HTC One, Nokia 92x, Motorola X)

    • Viipottaja

      Does the 107 have 32GB of internal?

      • Marc Aurel

        That would be a legitimate question if the standard 1020 had 64 GB of internal memory. 32 GB is simply not enough on a photography and video oriented device. It’s not a deal breaker if you really want one, but nevertheless it’s s much bigger practical shortcoming than the lack of 1080p screen or quad core processor, and it could have been easily fixed without adding that much to the BoM (for a flagship phone, that is).

        • Viipottaja

          I think it is still a legitimate question. :) In any case, yes, 64GB on 1020 would make some sense – and the variant is already reported as coming. I would bet this is another case where the carrier had a lot to say about the final specs, and preferred 32GB for price and/or wish to push data use, cloud services or whatever other reason. Similar reasoning may also have been on the Nokia and MS side.

    • Whatever

      The high end lumias don’t have a micro sd slot because there’s just no room for it. The cheaper lumias emit the lte radio which freed up space for the micro sd slot. Same here – there is unused space in these cheap phones which can be used for card slots.

      • Viipottaja

        I suspect it’s ultimately more about product line placement, target market, product differentiation and carrier preferences that determine this particular feature. Design also does play a role and thus in some cases space may indeed also be an issue.

  • Amil

    Still has better UI than Windows Phone!

    • Viipottaja

      No it doesn’t! It doesn’t have swipe gestures and does have hardware buttons, which are – as we all know – the two UI things that really matter! So, it is actually about AS bad as WP!

    • someone

      I cudnt agree u more :D :D lmao (btw i hv Lumia 720)
