Nokia 515 is a fancy, smartphone-like feature phone

Nokia a new member of its feature phone family of devices – Nokia 515. It’s a fancy device made out of premium materials (like sandblasted aluminum and hardened polycarbonate), while offering quite a bang for the buck.

Specs wise, the Nokia 515 comes with a Gorilla Glass 2-protected 2.4-inch QVGA screen, HSDPA connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0, USB tethering, and a battery that will keep the phone alive for up to 10.4 hours in talk and 38 days in standby mode. In addition, there’s also a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash on the back that sings along the Nokia camera software, allowing users to take voice-guided self-portraits, Panorama and group photos (sequential shots). Plus, let’s not forget the preloaded apps that include Facebook, Twitter and Nimbuzz (multi-network IM client), as well as Nokia Xpress Browser that uses compression to make web surfing faster.

The Nokia 515 will be available in black and white in the third quarter of this year, costing 115 EUR before any local taxes or operator subsidies. A dual-SIM version will also be released…
