Global mobile maker Nokia has proudly announced yet another feature phone named Nokia 515 to enhance its portfolio in this base. The new phone will be able in both single and dual SIM variants, and it is likely to target mid-level buyers across the world.
The body of Nokia 515 is made of a single piece of anodized and sandblasted aluminum, and its super cool display is having Gorilla Glass 2 to offer scratch resistant option. It is fully optimized to use under the sun.
This new feature phone offers 2.4-inch QVGA display screen that can easily produce resolution support of 240*320 pixels with a modest pixel density of 166ppi. It runs on Nokia's well-popular Series 40 (S-40) software. It weighs only 101.1grams for single SIM variant and 102.7 grams for dual-SIM while measuring only 114x48x11mm.
The Nokia 515 carries 64MB of RAM and 256MB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB with the help of a microSD card for further use. The main feature that is giving it an upper edge from the other phone of its range is its super cool camera. It is offering a 5-megapixel rear shooter (LED flash), and the camera has all the advanced options like voice-guided self-portrait, Panorama and Sequential shots. It has to be mentioned here that voice-guided self-portrait helps a user to take self-images even with the rear camera.

This new smartphone has almost all the modern connectivity options like GPRS, EDGE, 3G, Micro-USB and Bluetooth. However, it doesn’t offer Wi-Fi, which is quite disheartening for sure. It is worth mentioning here that the new Nokia 515 feature phone only supports Micro-SIM instead of regular SIM.
The device is coming up with some useful pre-loaded apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Mail for Exchange, Nimbuzz etc. These apps will certainly help the users to stay connected with their social media, check their important business emails and synchronize their contacts and calendars with super ease.
Nokia phones have a reputation of having solid batter backup, and in this case the newly-launch phone sports a 1200mAh battery. As per company’s claim the battery can easily deliver standby time of up to 528 hours and talk time of almost 10 hours.
Availability and Expected Price
The Finland-based company will start retailing the Nokia 515 in the third quarter of this year, and the shipping is likely to start with the high potential markets like Russia, Poland, Switzerland and Germany.
The expected retail price of this phone will be around $149 (or 115 EUR) before subsidies and taxes.
