Finnish mobile phone manufacturer, Nokia, has just announced three new handsets as a part of its Asha series at an event taking place in Abu Dhabi. These handsets were leaked several times in past weeks but now the company has made it official.
Nokia CEO Stephen Elop introduced the trio of Asha handsets, dubbed as the Asha 500, Asha 502 and Asha 503. The three handsets come with a new design which the company calls 'Dual shot layering effect'. The device also looks like the budget phones coated with a 'crystal-effect' casing.
