Ntel Nova: 4G/VoLTE phone in the body of a feature phone

Posted by

You will be forgiven for dismissing the Ntel Nova as a feature phone at first glance, but you would be wrong. This is an Android smartphone in the shell of a feature phone. It has a 3.5-inch touchscreen and an alphanumeric touchscreen keypad, but it runs Android 6 Marshmallow OS and supports 2G, 3G, and 4G networks, with VoLTE (voice over LTE) support. That means you can use the Nova to make calls over a 4G network in addition to regular network calls.

The Nova is certainly an interesting mobile device. Ntel says it is a smartphone at the cost of a feature phone. The Nova is being sold with one-off voice and data packages bundled in. Have a look at the Ntel Nova specifications below.
