Nevertheless, the devices are bound to be sold in the Indian, Middle-Eastern, Chinese and possibly even in European markets, at low costs to lure in customers.
The success of the device however will depend on the pricing because there are quite a lot of low-cost S60 and Belle OS devices by Nokia at the moment.
The S40 smartphone’s don’t actually give away a lot from the available clicks. But Nokia’s 311 and 305 were spotted on a Chinese forum by GSMARENA, being placed next to rulers. Both phones have a large touchscreen up front and call/end buttons below.
The 311 however, seems to be the more expensive of the two and has a slightly more premium look to it than the very cheap looking 305. We can see the 311 has a 3.2 megapixel camera on the back, with no flash. There seems to be a camera shutter button on the side.
There are also pictures of the user manual that uses cartoons to explain the various functions of the phone. The interface seems like the N9-Harmattan style UI that relies on side swipes to move between different screens. There are also other things like pinch to zoom and a drop down notification drawer.
