posted at 03 July, 2013

Today Nokia hast officially unveiled three new affordable handsets: the Nokia 207, Nokia 208 and 208 dual-SIM, which come in Nokia's now typical bold color versions, being almost identical to one another.

The featurephones are built around a 2.4-inch QVGA display and phone keypad, with the only difference between the 207 and 208 being the latter has a 1.3MP camera at the back, while the former features no snapper at all. In its turn, the 208 dual-SIM is no different from the 208 except for the dual-SIM capability, of course.

The 207 and 208 phones measure 114.2 x 50.9 x 12.8mm, weigh 89.6 grams and 90.5 grams, respectively, and share a 1020mAh battery which Nokia claims can go more than a month on stand-by without recharge, while talk time is rated at up to 12 hours on 2G. The phones will work almost everywhere in the world as they feature both quad-band 2G and tri-band 3G. Connectivity is covered with Bluetooth 3.0, which supports Slam sharing, 3.5mm AV port and microUSB port for PC sync and charging.

Both models support Nokia's data-compressing Xpress Browser, YouTube video streaming and popular social networks and services such asTwitter, Facebook and WhatsApp. There's a microSD card slot too, for storage up to 32GB.

Nokia says that the lack of a camera on 207 can also be an advantage as it can be used in workplaces which forbid cameras on sight. The phones are splash proof as well, thanks to the lack of gaps between the keys, and tough, due to the cup-style design taken from Asha 501 and Lumia 620.

The phones are expected to start shipping some time in Q3 this year, being available in red, cyan, white and black. The Nokia 207, 208 and 208 dual SIM will each cost around $68 (€52) before local taxes and subsidies.
