The new Nokia Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 were only two of the new devices that the Finnish mobile phone maker made official today at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The Nokia 301 was also among them, featuring a classic Nokia design from all angles, and set to arrive on the market in the second quarter of the year with a price tag of only €65 ($86) attached to it.
The new phone will be launched in single and dual-SIM flavors, with a 2.4-inch QVGA TFT color display, 256MB of internal memory, up to 32GB of external storage via microSD, 64MB of RAM, Bluetooth 3.0, 3.5 mm AV Connector, and 2.0 mm Charger Connector.
Nokia 301 measures 114 x 50 x 12.5 mm and weighs 102 grams, while also packing support for 3.5G connectivity and HD Voice capabilities.
On the back, the new device
features a 3.2-megapixel photo snapper, with panorama shot capabilities, as well as with a self-portrait feature with voice prompts that inform users on whether they are properly positioned in the frame.
“It can take panoramic photographs, as well – the first time we’ve offered this on a feature phone, as well as sequential shot, which takes 3-5 frames and lets you choose the perfect picture,” Nokia Conversations explains
“Both of these last two were inspired by the digital camera lenses on our Lumia smartphones
– nice to see the high-end innovation reaching our mobile phones.”
The Nokia Xpress Browser was also included on this handset, along with a Vuclip app, so that users could easily stream videos from YouTube or download them and watch them in portrait or landscape mode.
“Facebook, eBuddy, WhatsApp and Twitter are all preloaded to the home screen and the email app supports a lite version of Mail for Exchange for syncing your calendar, contacts and emails,” Nokia Conversations continues.
The new mobile phone
will be launched in yellow, cyan, magenta, white and black, and will be able to provide users with up to 39 days of standby on 3G networks with a single SIM card packed inside, or 34 days with two SIM cards.
