Motorola W165, another low-end Moto phone

There will always be customers who want cheap, basic mobile phones, thus there must always be manufacturers to produce them.

Motorola isn’t ashamed of being one of these manufacturers (why would it?), and the new Motorola W165 phone comes to say I’m right. 

The handset is a candybar that will probably be targeted to emerging markets. Even so, the US might get it too, since it’s Motorola’s home country.

Design-wise, the W165 is as simple as it gets, looking like a phone from circa 2004. Here it is:

 

The known specs and features of Motorola W165 include:

  • Dual band GSM connectivity (900 / 1800 or 850 / 1900 MHz)
  • 1.44 inch CSTN display with 65K colors and 128 x 128 pixels
  • A 2.5mm headset jack
  • A 780 mAh battery of unknown performance
  • 108 x 46 x 12.5 millimeters
  • 77 grams

No details yet about the release date of W165 or about its retail price.
