Smartphones may get all the attention these days, but sometimes you just need a phone that gets weeks of battery life, easily fits in your pocket, and is designed first and foremost for making calls. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t nice to have a bonus feature or two.

And boy does the new Nokia 5710 XpressAudio cellphone have a bonus feature. It’s a compact phone that sells for £75 (~$90) and also functions as a portable audio player thanks to a set of true wireless earbuds that come with the phone. And when you’re not using the earbuds? You can just stuff them inside a compartment within the phone to charge.

Just slide down the plastic cover on the back of the phone to reveal the charging compartment. The clever design means there’s one less thing to keep track of: instead of grabbing your phone and the charging case for your earbuds before heading out the door, all you need is your phone.

The front of the phone features as 2.4 inch QVGA display and a T9-style keyboard for making calls or sending texts via predictive text.

The Nokia 5710 XpressAudio is very much a cellphone and not a smartphone. It has just 48MB of RAM and 128MB of built-in storage, but it has a microSD card slot with support for cards up to 32GB which you can use to load MP3s for listening to music, audiobooks, or other content. There’s also support for FM radio.

HMD’s earbuds communicate with the phone via a Bluetooth 5.0 connection. And the phone has a removable battery that should provide up to a month of standby time or around 6 to 8 hours of talk time.

Other features include a micro USB 2.0 port, a Unisoc T107 processor, dual SIM 3G and 4G network support, and a 0.3MP rear camera with an LED flash. The phone is available in black and red or white and red color options, and it runs the S30+ operating system with support for a handful of games including Snake, Tetris, and Black Jack.

The phone measures 139 x 58 x 16mm (5.5″ x 2.3″ x 0.6″) and weighs 129 grams (5 ounces).

It’s one of three new basic phones from HMD Global. Others include the Nokia 8210 4G candybar-style phone and the Nokia 2660 Flip phone.

  1. Actual Nokia dumbphones and featurepones are bad Chinese garbage using Nokia names. I bought a dumphone for old parent and call quality, volume and usage was horrible, far away from very old Nokia phones from decades ago. I returned it.

  2. Unfortunately even if it had KaiOS you still wouldnt be able to stream spotify music which would be like the best use for something like this.

  3. It is quite a nice idea if it works. My last set of Nokia buds didn’t turn off when you put them in the case.
    At least they are innovating.

  4. You are in for an unpleasant surprise with the 8210 4G. It is humungous compared to the original 8210.

  5. If a phone that looked like this had been released 15 years ago I might have actually gotten excited about it.
    These days I couldn’t trust it and I’d worry that it would make me look bad.

    1. All they need now is the time-machine to send them back to 2005. Phase 1 complete.
