Days ago I posted here about the Nokia’s World Premier Event at Moscow. I’d stay on my social Medias to be informed about but Nokia remains silent and gave no hints on their facebook and twitter pages until August 28. Early this morning (Manila Time: 4:30 am) of August 29, I saw a post from Engadget on twitter reporting Nokia’s newest phone, Nokia 515. I know most of the mobile phone users are preferred to buy a smartphone but Nokia still pursuing featurephones though there’s still a market for them. Nokia 515 is not a smartphone but a feature phone taking back the past years’ Series 40, but now more capable than before.

The phone has sturdy anodized sandblasted aluminum body for premium looks than other Nokia s40 phones. It features a 2.4 inch QVGA LCD display and Gorilla Glass 2 on top as a protector. The keypad is produced using a polycarbonate resin. At the back you will see the 5mp shooter with LED flash and the speaker dots which making resemblance to the design of some Lumia. Inside there are 256mb of storage expandable up to 32 GB via microSD.
