The Nokia 5710 XpressAudio feature phone doesn’t have a headphone jack. Instead, it has built-in wireless earbuds with a charging case that slides out.
HMD Global has announced the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio, a unique feature phone with wireless earbuds built right in. The company also announced the Nokia T10 tablet, which has an 8-inch screen, as well as a couple of feature phones for certain markets. Even though smartphones are becoming more and more popular, millions of feature phones are still sold every year.
HMD Global is one of the most popular brands in this area. Since it took over the Nokia brand name in 2017, it has been re-releasing classic Nokia phones with updated designs and modern features like LTE, Wi-Fi, and mobile hotspot, while keeping the basics like the alphanumeric keypad, removable battery, and weeks-long standby time.
The Nokia 5710 is not a new version of a Nokia classic phone. Instead, it takes its design from the now-defunct XpressMusic line. The top and bottom edges of the phone are rounded, and on either side of the screen are playback controls. The phone also has an alphanumeric keypad. The Nokia 5710 is different from other feature phones on the market because it has a built-in charging case for the wireless earbuds that come with it. This case is hidden in a compartment on the back of the phone. There will be black and white versions of the Nokia 5710.
A Slide-Out Earbuds Charging Case
HMD Global isn’t the first company to make products with earbuds built in. Lenovo released the ThinkBook 15 Gen 2 laptop in 2020. The earbuds slide out from the right side. There are also some cheap smartwatches with built-in earbuds. Still, this is something new and will make a lot of people talk about it. Read More; OnePlus Buds Pro review: Good Buds
The charging case for the Nokia 5710 is on the back, and a red plastic slider covers it. When you pull it down, you can see the black or white earbuds, depending on which colorway you bought. When they aren’t being used, owners can just put them in the space where they will be charged. They can last for up to four hours on a single charge, but they don’t have high-end features like active noise cancellation.
The Nokia 5710 XpressAudio has specs that are the same as a few of HMD Global’s feature phones. It has a QVGA color display with a size of 2.4 inches. It doesn’t have a camera on the front, but there is a 0.3MP camera and an LED flash on the back. The phone is powered by a 1GHz single-core Unisoc T107 chip, which works with 48MB of RAM and 128MB of storage. Read Also; Apple AirPods Pro 2: What We Know So Far
There is a slot for a microSD card, which can be used to add more storage, but the maximum size that can be used is 32GB. The Nokia 5710 also has stereo speakers, an MP3 player, and an FM radio. Users can choose to listen through the loudspeaker or the earbuds that come with the phone. Since the phone comes with earbuds, it’s interesting that HMD Global decided to leave out the headphone jack. The good news is that you can connect the earbuds to other things as well.
The phone comes with either a single SIM or two SIMs. It supports 4G LTE and VoLTE, but nothing is said about Wi-Fi and hotspots. It also comes with a 1,450mAh battery that can be taken out and charged through a micro-USB port. It will go on sale in July for £74.99 (about $89 USD).
HMD Global also announced the Nokia 2660 Flip, which costs £64.99 ($77) and is the same as the Nokia 2760 Flip 4G sold in the U.S. The Nokia 8210 4G, which costs the same, is another option. At the moment, it looks like none of the phones, including the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio, will be sold in North America.
