Today, Nokia has launched a new device in India named Nokia 301. Nokia 301 is not an Asha series phone and it’s a dual SIM supporting feature mobile phone.

Nokia 301 comes preloaded with 3.2MP camera at rear which Nokia is calling a smart camera. The rear camera has got features like Panorama, special effects, sequential shots (burst mode capturing five shots in one click) and video recording at 30 frames per second.
The camera can be operated with voice instructions that means self portrait can be taken easily with the rear camera of Nokia 301.
