Microsoft has launched new Nokia mobile phones – Nokia 216 and Nokia 216 Dual for Indian customers. The Nokia 216 is a single SIM phone while the Nokia 216 Dual is a dual SIM phone. This release was quite out of the blue keeping the current developments regarding Nokia and Microsoft in the mind.

These phones offers a 0.3 MP camera with LED flash at the back and a 0.3MP front camera with selfie flash. They also feature FM Radio, MP3 & Video Player and Bluetooth Audio support (A2DP). The device body is made of poly-carbonate and sports a 2.4-Inch QVGA glance screen. The phone has a 1020mAh removable battery which offers 19 days of standby time and supports 18 hours of continuous voice calling and 47 hours of music playback.
