The level of benefits include the 3.5-inch screen with 320 x 480 pixels, 3G+ compatibility (with rates 5.76 Mbit/s transmission and 21 Mbit/s in reception), Wi-Fi 802.11n connections/Bluetooth 3.0 Ports/Micro-USB 2.0 mini-jack, a camera and a 0.3 Megapixel symbolic camera, 512MB of internal memory fortunately expandable to 32GB via MicroSD. As for the battery there is a Lithium-Ion 1350 mAh model.
Availability is expected in the first quarter of 2014, mainly in emerging markets such as India or China. No price has been leaked yet, but it can be estimated well below 100 euros.
