Do you miss the good ol’ small phones that were popular some years ago? If you are a fan of the compact devices, Microsoft has something new for you. The company revealed the Nokia 230 and its dual-SIM sibling. The chassis of the devices are made of polycarbonate with sand-blasted aluminum back plates. The main difference between the two new phones is in the dual-SIM capabilities of the Nokia 230 Dual SIM. They sport 2.8-inch screens with a resolution of 240 x 320p. The provided RAM in the models is 16MB. The Nokia 230 and its sibling arrive with Opera Mini, MSN weather, Bing Search and Series 30+ pre-installed on them. They support microSD cards.
The primary camera is on the back. It is a 2MP sensor with LED flash and capabilities of shooting 1200 x 1600p videos and pictures. The front-facing camera of the handsets is with 2MP resolution and LED flash. This means that the compact devices can snap decent selfies. The connectivity features supported by the phones include 2G and Bluetooth. The battery equipped with Nokia 230 and its dual-SIM variation is with a capacity of 1200mAh. It can keep the phone running for more than three weeks in stand-by mode. The price of the newcomers starts at $55. They will be launched next month on time for the big holiday shopping. The phones will be released worldwide starting from India, the Middle East and Asia.
