The handset sports a 2.4-inch QVGA display, a 5MP camera with voice-activated self-portraits 256MB of on-board storage and a microSD card that supports up to 32GB. The phone will be powered by a 1200mAh battery, which according to Nokia should last up to 38 days of stand-by using a single SIM.

The Nokia 515 is expected to ship in Q3 2013 starting in Russia, Germany, Switzerland and Poland. It will be priced around US$149 before taxes and subsidies.
