These days, everybody seems to be looking to get a smartphone, but there still are cheaper handsets around, such as the super cheap Nokia 130. And now it seems that the line of devices has received a new software update.

Since acquiring Nokia’s phone and services division, Microsoft has discontinued the AOSP based Nokia X line up, as well as the Asha series. But it seems that the feature phone segment, where Nokia is still very popular, isn’t going away.

Nokia 130 software update

Microsoft has announced the affordable $25 Nokia 130 feature phone back in August, and we can see that it features a super cheap price. The handset is getting a software update which brings a few bug fixes on board.

The new update brings support for the Bulgarian language, as well as a fix for the “contacts not ready” error. Of course, a bunch of other bug fixes and stability improvements have been rolled out, as well.

The device doesn’t support over-the-air updates, so Nokia 130 owners will have to connect their device to their PCs and update it using the Lumia Software Recovery tool.
