"After all, in India, three of the top 20 handsets that are deployed are still from Nokia", Kawoosa added. An 8-megapixel snapper (1.12um pixel size, f/2.0 aperture) is placed on the back of this smartphone, and an 8-megapixel camera (1.12um pixel size, 84-degree wide-angle lens) can also be found on the device's front side.
