Nokia 515 announced. New Asha 502 (Pegasus) and Asha 503 (Lanai) coming soon
Nokia has announced a new and cheap handset, a non-smartphone called Nokia 515.
The 515 was unveiled in Moscow – which means the mysterious September 28 event that we told you about last week has turned out to be not quite important. The new phone is a candybar “wrapped in lightweight aluminum,” and reportedly “combines the best of Nokia – contemporary design, high quality materials and top performance.”
The handset uses Nokia’s Series 40 UI, and features: a 2.4 inch QVGA display with Gorilla Glass 2, HSDPA, Mail for Exchange, Nokia Slam sharing service, Nokia XpressBrowser, 5MP rear camera with the ability to shoot in Panorama mode, MicroSD card support, and a 1,200 mAh battery.
The Nokia 515 will be available before the end of September, in black and white. Russia, Germany, Switzerland and Poland should be the first markets to get it. A dual SIM version will be released as well, but not globally. Both the dual and single SIM Nokia 515 handsets will have the same price: €115 before taxes and subsidies.
In related news, two new Nokia Asha semi-smartphones are also coming soon: the Asha 502 Pegasus, and the Asha 503 Lanai. These will likely be introduced as improved successors to the Asha 501 (which is available around the world since June). We will let you know more as soon as new details arrive.
