Nokia has unveiled its brand new smartphone Asha 310 with Dual SIM capacity and Wi-Fi connectivity. It is the company's flagship smartphone with Wi-Fi connectivity. All these features have been packed with a price tag of Rs.6,000/-. Nokia has announced that the phone will be available in Asia, India, the Middle East, Africa and Brazil in the first quarter of the year 2013. With these facilities, Nokia is coming to conquer the low-end smartphone market. Though not much of its specs are available, have a look at the available details of Asha 310.
Design and Exterior:
Nokia Asha 310 is coming with a measurement of 109.9×54×13 mm. The device expected to have a weight of 104 g. the design type will be candy bar. The device is expected to feature in three different colour variations, Black, White and Golden Light.
The Nokia Asha 310 will be having a capacitive multi touch TFT screen display with 240×400 pixels resolution. It will be supported by 65536 colours. Another major feature of the screen is that it is made up of Scratch-resistant glass.
CPU and Performance:
Nothing more about the CPU of Nokia Asha 310 is available. We can understand this much that the phone will be having a 1 GHz single core processor. Nothing about its RAM has been leaked. The only confirmation we got was the device will be having a microSD card slot, through which the memory can be expanded up to 32 GB. There is no news about its Operating System either.
Nokia Asha 310 has only one camera. That will be a disappointing feature as far as video calling lovers are concerned. The phone has only a rear camera, that too with only 2 mega pixel. That could be a major drawback of the otherwise good device. The rear camera has a resolution of 1600×1200 pixels. It has video recording facility at @10fps.
Internet and Connectivity:
For the first time in the history of Nokia, Nokia Asha 310 will be featuring full fledged Wi-Fi support. The connectivity of the phone includes,2G Network GSM 900 / 1800, GPRS up to 85.6 kbps, EDGE up to 236.8 kbps, WLAN, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP and microUSB v2.0. Unfortunately, the device has no 3G connection. The device has Accelerometer as its sensor. The Nokia Asha 310 packs Nokia Xpress Browser, which helps the consumer to save a lot of money by compressing the Internet data by up to 90%.
Nokia Asha 310 comes with a Li-Ion 1110 mAh battery (BL-4U). According to the reports of the company, the battery can give you a talk time up to 17 h. The battery can provide a stand by talk time up to 600 h and with the music player on, it will give you a battery life up to 54 h.
On the biggest positive side, side, the Asha 310 carries a price tag that is really budget friendly. You can get a Nokia Asha 310 at just Rs. 6,000/-. considering the specifications provided by Nokia Asha 310, the cost is worth it.
Well, like any other Nokia devices, this device too has both cons and pros. Where the Wi-Fi, Dual SIM and Price tag puts the device top in the list, the lacking of 3G and secondary camera brings it down. If you are a person who wants web browsing and surfing at a pretty low cost, then Nokia Asha 310 is your go. But if you want a 3G experience with video calling, then definitely this can never satisfy you.
