Microsoft has announced the launch of Nokia 230 Dual SIM feature phone in India. While Microsoft has dropped Nokia from its Lumia line-up, it is sticking to the trusted Nokia branding to maintain the strong hold in the feature phones category.

The Nokia 230 Dual SIM comes with a design language that looks premium and basically addresses the need for a superior device in the segment. It is a non-touch device with some features available on touch-friendly smartphones.

The Nokia 230 Dual SIM is available at Rs 3,949 with metallic finish and has a aluminium back cover. The Nokia 230 Dual SIM features front and rear cameras with flash and built-in social media features. The screen is also large at 2.8-inches making it decent enough for web browsing.

“Amidst the burgeoning market for touch-enabled smartphones, there was a latent need in the market for a premium quality, non-touch feature phone with enhanced features,” said Ravi Kunwar, Director-North, Microsoft Mobile Devices.

Like every other Nokia feature phone before, the Nokia 230 Dual SIM also delivers strong on battery life. It has a standby time of 22 days and is rated at 23 hours of talk time. The device will be available in Silver and Dark Silver colour variants.
