Nokia seems to have gone back to what they were the best at, Candy-bar Phones. With the Launch of the Nokia 515 they plan on targeting the Nokia Fanboys. The Phone is built from premium Aluminum with matt finish to make it look and feel great. The curved Gorilla Glass toughens the phone and gives extra readability in direct sunlight. It features a 2.4-inch QVGA display with 240x320 pixels and boasts a pixel density of 166ppi. It measures 114x48x11mm and weighs 101.1grams for single SIM and 102.7 grams for dual-SIM variant.

Nokia 515 includes 256 MB of internal storage which can be expanded to 32 Gigs with a MicroSD card. To add on to that is a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash for low-light conditions. The camera includes options like voice-guided self-portrait for taking self-shots with the rear camera, Sequential shots and Panorama.

Connectivity options include EDGE, GPRS, Micro-USB & Bluetooth. However it lacks wifi connectivity. With this what you also get is the option to tether 3G onto your Computer and use it as a modem. The phone will only support Micro-Sims instead of regular Simcards. The Device also features many inbuilt apps like Facebook, Twitter, Mail for Exchange.

The Phone will retail in the black and white colors at roughly $150 / INR 10000 and is expected to hit the Indian market sometime in the last quarter of 2013.
