The Nokia Asha 502 Dual SIM and Asha 503–unveiled at the Nokia event in Abu Dhabi –are all set to go on sale in select markets including India. Both devices will reportedly be available through online retailers and Nokia retail outlets within a week. However, except Saholic currently none of the Indian retail sites have listed them. The e-retailer has listed only the Dual SIM Asha 502 and not he 503, but hasn't mentioned the pricing or availability.
Based on pricing of previous Asha phones as well as keeping the mind the specs of the two feature phones, we expect them to be priced under Rs 10,000. At the event held in October, Nokia had announced the Asha 502 for $89 that amounts to approximately Rs 5,400, and the Asha 503 for $99 that is approximately Rs 6,000. The official India pricing of both devices will be slightly higher than the quoted dollar price.
The new Asha 502 coming to India
The Asha 502 dual SIM and the 503 sport a 3-inch display with 240 x 320 pixels of resolution and also get a layer of Gorilla Glass 2 protection. Some other common specs include 5 megapixel rear camera, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and microSD card slots. They also feature social networking integration (Facebook, Twitter, Sina Weibo, LINE, WeChat) and Nokia's data compressing Xpress Browser.
The Asha 503 is easily the more high-end of the Asha phones announced by Nokia and gets additional 3.5G support. These devices are expected to be available in several colours including red, green, yellow, cyan, white, and black.
