The new phone also comes with HD voice*, which means people can enjoy crystal clear audio, even in noisy environments. Plus, with the pre-installed Transfer app, they can sync contacts directly from a Lumia, other Windows Phone 8 smartphone or Android device, transforming the Nokia 515 into the ideal secondary or companion device for on the go. For those who prefer to use a separate phone for voice calls, the Nokia 515 uses the same micro SIM card as typical smartphones, making it a great voice companion device.
"Feature phones still make up one half of global handset sales," said Simon Baker, Program Manager, Mobile Handsets CEMA at IDC. "There is room in the market for a range of feature phone models. Nokia is one of the few handset manufacturers continuing to pursue the area: one of its latest offerings, the new Nokia 515 offers a stylish and robust exterior and features fast connectivity, high quality imaging and access to popular applications. It's a great example of a phone which will serve an audience which does not always need the complexity that a smartphone may bring, or which may prefer to do its browsing and emailing on a larger tablet device and will retain a handy mobile phone for straightforward calls and for texting."
The Nokia 515 starts to roll out globally in September, starting in Russia, Germany, Switzerland and Poland. It will have a suggested retail price of 149 USD / 115 EUR before taxes and subsidies.
