New Nokia Asha 501 and 210 possibly coming soon
Nokia may be preparing the release of two new handsets included in its Asha series. These are the Nokia 501 (model number RM-902) and Nokia 210 (model number RM-924), both certified recently by Indonesian Telecoms authorities.
The Nokia 501 could be the unannounced Asha handset appeared last month thanks to Evleaks (see the image below). If that’s the case, it should come with a redesigned UI, 5MP rear camera, and several color versions.
The Asha 501 will certainly be very cheap, probably costing around $150. Together with the Lumia 520 (which, of course, runs Windows Phone 8), this new handset should allow Nokia to compete with Samsung’s affordable Galaxy smartphones.
As for the Nokia 210, nothing is known about it at the moment. It could be either a QWERTY handset (like the Asha 201 or Asha 205), or a classic candybar with a small touchscreen (like the Asha 202 and 203). In any case, this will also be a cheap device.
