Nokia has now globally launched its Lite Earbuds, alongside no fewer than six new Nokia smartphones, with model number BH-205. Nokia Lite Earbuds are as the branding here implies, intended to offer a premium design and battery life in a pocketable package.
The biggest selling point here is the battery
Nokia Lite Earbuds were, as noted above, launched with the goal of offering premium audio at a not-so-premium price point. And, if the company’s announcement is any indicator, they might just accomplish that.
First and foremost, Nokia Lite Earbuds offer battery life that’s almost double the industry standard, according to the company. The wearables offer the equivalent of 36-hours of total playback time in a package that’s under 3-inches on the long side and under 1.5-inches on the short side. That’s split across a total of 6 extra charge-ups.
The Bluetooth 5.0 gadget also covers the breadth of the human hearing range, from 20Hz to 20kHz. With 6mm drivers, USB-C charging, and up to 32-feet of range.

Pricing and availability
Now, the exact pricing and availability for any given region has not been laid out by the company just yet. The company has revealed a broad global average price of €39. And that places the wearable at under $50 by a significant amount.
HMD Global also indicates that Nokia Lite Earbuds will be launched in ‘select markets’ starting in mid-April. So it shouldn’t be too long before the first indication of launch regions is apparent. They’ll be available in a deep blue ‘Polar Sea’ or dark grey ‘Charcoal’ color option.
