It is a phone designed for the style-conscious users. Nokia 2626 is a colourful phone, keeping up with the users in the emerging markets.

The phone is constructed out of three different plastic materials, with the inset made of tinted glass, having mirror coating on the front.
The phone has none of the control rockers at its sides, except for few things. Two loudspeakers are situated at the top and right hand sides of the phone, and the charger input jack and the 2.50mm audio jack, are situated at the bottom of the phone along with an odd looking slot. Nokia 2626 has a 27×27 mm STN-matrix display, with a resolution of 128×128 pixels, having 65K colours. While the picture quality is good in normal ambient light conditions, it gets washed out in the sun, but however, it retains the legibility of the display.
Nokia 2626 has a similar keypad as that of Nokia 2610, being made in ledges which makes it comfortable to handle. The numeric buttons are a bit larger than the others, which prevents wrong dialling of numbers. To activate the radio, the user need to have the key “*” pressed longer, and in the same manner, pressing “#” activates the silent mode. The navigation key for this phone is quite small, making a person with a larger thumb difficult to manipulate. The two functional keys has the left one is dedicated to the menu, while the right one can be used just about for any function, even to lock the keyboard. The keys are white and bright making it easy for the user to read the legible key captions.
