It’s battery has a standby time of up to 27 hours, and the phone features a wireless radio.

The Nokia 105 feature phone, available globally from €13, follows the original Nokia 105, with a removable battery HMD said can last for days between charges. It has storage space for 2,000 contacts and 500 SMS, along with a built-in radio, LED torchlight and six preloaded games.
