It looks like Nokia Mobile is planning to launch its next KaiOS smartphone. Nokia N139DL had previously appeared on the official Wifi certification website and learned that the phone will support KaiOs 3.0 , 4G networks and 2.4GHz wireless networks.
Now NokiaPowerUser has announced that Nokia N139DL has obtained GCF certification and may soon be launched in the European market. Nokia N139DL; Nokia 6300 4G, Nokia 2720 Flip, Nokia 800 Tough, Nokia 8000 4G and Nokia 8110 4G, which has five KaiOS supported phones, will be the sixth KaiOS supported phone of Nokia .
Nokia N139DL focuses on ease of use, not aesthetics
The system was developed by KaiOS Technologies, not by Nokia. has come a long way since then. For those of you who are not familiar with this system, we should mention that the system recently received a RedDot award in the Interface and User Experience category. As IDC reports, Nokia has managed to launch more than 140 models so far. With a total value of more than $3.8 billion, the company’s market share in the feature phone market is 8 percent . Most people around the world may be using smartphones; however, there are still more than 1 billion people using feature phones today, which means that KaiOS can hold its place in the market for a long time to come.
Smartphone user interface developers often focus on advanced or complex functions; however, for feature phones they are not required . In this sense, it can be said that KaiOS does not focus on aesthetics. The team essentially wants the system to run smoothly on a low-spec device and any user can use the phone with no effort , with no learning costs. This is exactly why the KaiOS team adopts a minimalist design approach. Accordingly, users should be able to navigate easily on the phone and interact successfully with applications. Many of you might think this is pretty easy to implement on feature phones; however, this is extremely important for users who have not previously owned a mobile phone.
As such, it is not difficult to predict that interaction with the phone will occur via physical keys . Keys are optimized for applications such as Browser to compensate for hardware limitations. The main screen, on the other hand, is designed to provide direct access to applications . Users can navigate between applications by simply pressing certain keys.
