Today Nokia introduces an elegant addition to the range: the Nokia 515. It’s a classic mobile phone made with premium materials and offering high performance. It’s a model that’s equally suitable for use as your main device or as a companion to your smartphone.

The Nokia 515 has been crafted with close attention to detail, and an obsession with purity. The main body is constructed from a single piece of anodised, sandblasted aluminium, while Gorilla® Glass 2 protects the gently curved display, which is polarised for use in sunlight. For the keymat, which continues the gentle curvature, a new hardened polycarbonate resin was specially created.

The result is a lightweight, 11mm-thin body that combines the best in elegance and resilience.

Nokia 515 (Single SIM variant)

System: 3.5G HSDPA – GSM 850/900/1800/1900 WCDMA 900/2100

Size and weight: 114 x 48 x 11 mm; 101.1g

Display: 2.4” QVGA LCD 262k display

Memory: Up to 256MB flash, support for up to 32GB microSD card

Connectivity: microUSB port supporting data transfer and charging, Bluetooth 3.0, 3.5 mm AV connector, Micro SIM

Camera: 5 megapixels, LED flash

Battery life: up to 38 days standby; up to 10.4 hrs talk time (3G: up to 5.3 hrs)

On the back, there’s a 5-megapixel camera with some very smart features. The voice-guided self-portrait lets you take perfect pictures of yourself even though you can’t see the screen. Sequential shots allow you to take the perfect group shot while Panorama can take in 100-degrees of the scene around you. An LED flash allows for pictures indoors. Once you’ve created the perfect picture, you can use Nokia’s Slam to share pictures with a couple of clicks to other Bluetooth phones.

 

The Nokia 515 offers a fast, 3.5G HSDPA internet connection, of which the phone is well-equipped to take advantage. You can even use the phone as a fast 3G modem, connected to your laptop with a USB cable.

The Mail for Exchange app allows access to corporate email and will keep your contacts and calendar synchronised. The Nokia Xpress Browser loads web pages much faster than normal, using compression so it also requires less data to show them. On the social side, Facebook, Twitter and Nimbuzz are preloaded, while thousands of other apps are available for download from the Nokia Store.

The Nokia 515 is available in black and white, and in single and Easy Swap Dual SIM variants. Nokia’s Easy Swap technology allows you to swiftly change SIM cards without turning off the phone on the Dual SIM model. The phone can take advantage of HD-voice services (where available), for crystal-clear calls even in noisy environments. The single-SIM model is capable of a standby battery life of up to 38 days.
