More Nokia Asha 502, Asha 503 Details Emerge

Nokia is all geared up to announce at least half a dozen new devices within the next 12 hours. At Nokia World this year, the whole world is waiting in anticipation to see Windows Phone powered devices come of age and adopt modern novelties such as 1080p panels and quad-core processors. Yes, we are talking about the Lumia 1520, but this post ain't about that phone.

Nokia's entry-level Asha lineup will get two new additions, both full-touch devices. The Asha 503 will feature the same 3.2-inch QVGA (320 x 240) display, but is said to come with a 5 megapixel rear camera accompanied by an LED flash (making it the most advanced camera on any Asha phone yet). A micro SD card slot and a 1200 mAh battery also make it to the list of specifications. While the Asha 503 will support 3G, the Asha 502 will have to do without it. Dimensionally, both phones will fit comfortably in anybody's palm: 102.55 mm x 60.55 x 11.5 mm with a weight of 112 grams.

Both new devices are expected to be announced at Nokia World, to be held tomorrow. Expect them to be priced under a $100, making them a value proposition, especially when you consider that apps like Whatsapp and games such as Plants vs. Zombies are making their way to the platform.
