Nokia is integrating UPI into its feature phones, such as the Nokia 105 2023 and Nokia 106, to address the digital divide and provide financial access to all.

UPI, a popular payment system, was previously limited to smartphone users.

However, with the introduction of UPI 123PAY, an instant payment system designed for feature phones by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), Nokia aims to revolutionise financial accessibility.

Introducing UPI 123PAY

UPI 123PAY ensures a secure and convenient payment experience for feature phone users.

It offers multiple technology options, including IVR number-based transactions, feature phone app functionality, missed call-based approach, and proximity sound-based payments.

These alternatives allow users of Nokia feature phones to effortlessly make purchases, transfer money, and conduct transactions.
