A few months back, Nokia had announced the 515— a feature phone packed with smartphone-like features. The phone is now available online on Indian e-commerce site Snapdeal for Rs 10,898 and also on Flipkart. Nokia had unveiled this phone as a secondary phone to a smartphone and it was in news mainly because of its aluminum body, alphanumeric keyboard-equipped design, as well as features like Gorilla Glass display and 5-megapixel camera.
Going by the details, India gets the dual-SIM variant (with micro SIM support) of the 515 phone which comes with a 2.5-inch QVGA display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2 above the traditional alphanumeric keyboard. The phone also flaunts a slim aluminum chassis to justify its price. It also features 64MB of RAM, 256MB of internal memory expandable to up to 32GB using a microSD card and a 5-megapixel primary camera with flash but no front camera. On the connectivity front, the phone is equipped with 3G, Bluetooth and GPS/GPRS, however lacks Wi-Fi support. It houses a 1,200mAh battery with up to 10.4 hours of talktime on 2G and 5.3 hours on 3G, and offers up to 38 days of standby time.
Besides these features, the phone comes with a number of photo editing tools including best shot and panorama mode. It also offers a self-portrait mode with voice prompts for taking selfies with the rear camera.
