Recently launched in India, the Nokia Asha 205 has made an appearance in China as well. However, given the fact that Facebook is restricted in the Mainland, the Finnish company has replaced the dedicated key with a QQ button.

QQ is one of the most popular instant messaging services available in China, which is why Nokia has decided to add a dedicated button on the Asha 205.

UnwiredView reports the feature phone is now official in China as Nokia Asha 2050 and can be purchased for only 400 yuan outright, which is about $65 or €50.

The handset runs Nokia’s S40 UI and packs a small 2.4-inch display, along with 64MB internal memory, microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB) and VGA rear camera.

It is also worth mentioning that the Asha 2050 features a full portrait QWERTY keyboard and the new Slam sharing service.
