Smartphone maker HMD recently announced a trio of new Nokia feature phones which included the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio which comes with a built-in charging case for an included pair of wireless earbuds – making it a notable form factor design.
The Nokia 5710 XpressAudio looks like any other regular feature phone with its candy-bar style dawning a 2.4-inch screen and a classic T9 keypad. But what makes it stand out most is the charging compartment added to the back that is revealed with the slide of a plastic cover meant to charge earbuds.
The Nokia 5710 XpressAudio will retail for £74.99 and will be available in the UK in late July, though there’s no word on a US release. The device is bundled with true wireless earbuds that offer up to four hours of music playback per charge and 2.4 hours of talk time.
The 5710 XpressAudio also comes with a decent 1,450mAh battery that offers up to six hours of talk time over 4G and up to 20 days of standby with two 4G SIM cards inserted, which is awesome as one doesn’t have to worry much about keeping the accessories charged all the time.
According to The Verge, the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio is a feature phone and may not include support for modern music streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music given the fact that it runs on the Series 30 Plus operating system used in Nokia-branded phones for almost a decade. The device will, however, include the ability to play MP3s or listen to a built-in FM radio.

Alongside the Nokia 5710 XpressAudio, HMD has also announced the Nokia 8210 4G feature phone (based on the classic Nokia 8210 released in 1999) and a flip phone called the Nokia 2660 Flip. The 8210 4G will retail for £64.99, while the Nokia 2660 Flip will cost £64.99 and has an optional charging cradle that costs an extra £20. Both are available in late July.
Finally, there’s the Nokia T10, a smaller eight-inch Android tablet compared to the 10-inch T20 released last year. Prices start at £129 for a Wi-Fi-only model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage that will be available in August.
