Many smartphones these days still come with just one SIM slot, but we have been seeing our fair share of dual SIM smartphones being introduced to the market in recent times. Of course, one particular niche where the dual SIM handset would do very well would be the featurephone range, and Nokia is still king of the ring here. Of course, we ought to bear in mind that Microsoft now owns Nokia, and while there has been whispers going around that Microsoft has more or less “forced”, or rather, convinced Nokia to cancel some Asha devices, a new Asha 500 has popped up in the form of a press render thanks to the folks over at @evleaks.
The Nokia Asha 500 does not seem all that much different from the Asha 501, where the latter has already been available in select markets since June. The Nokia Asha 500, however, will not come with a hardware homey key like the Asha 501, albeit it will feature a capacitive one. Other than the dual SIM capability, we figure out that the Nokia Asha 500 would most probably arrive with a 3” display, Wi-Fi connectivity and a highly affordable price point.
