Nokia seems to be in no mood to rest after the laurels earned by its
Asha 501 budget feature phone, as the company is reportedly working on
two new Asha devices, if a rumour is to be believed.
In line with the
design language of the recently launched Nokia Asha 501, the company reportedly
has the Asha 502 and Asha 503 phones in the pipeline. This Is Nokia, a Nokia fan website cites sources to reveal the specifications of
the Nokia Asha 502, codenamed Pegasus and the Nokia Asha 503, codenamed
Lanai. The site claims that both of the alleged Asha phones could be
launched in Q3 or Q4 of 2013.
The site notes that the Nokia Asha
502 will feature a polycarbonate design with a 3.2 to 3.5-inch scratch
resistant display which is said to be better than that of the Asha 501,
though the source is not sure about the screen resolution. It is likely
to be slimmer and lighter. The RAM could be in the range of 128 to 512
MB while the processor is expected to be clocked at 1-1.2GHz. The Asha
502 is said to support 3G connectivity, the feature that was widely
missed on the Asha 501. It could sport a 5-megapixel rear camera with
the new Nokia Camera app for Asha devices. The site also claims that the
device could support dual-SIM.
Meanwhile, the alleged Nokia Asha
503 is said to feature a polycarbonate and glass design. The display is
likely to be around 3.2 to 3.4-inches. It could be powered by a 1-1.5GHz
processor with a GPU and RAM could be in the range of 128 to 512MB. The
Asha 503 is also likely to be a dual SIM phone with 3G connectivity.
site also notes that both the yet to be announced Asha devices feature
Nokia SLAM Bluetooth transfer for faster sharing of files, pictures and
even videos. However, there is no word from Nokia about the possible
availability and pricing of the Asha phones, yet.
