Microsoft has now come up with a new feature phone named Nokia 230 which boasts of clicking selfies with its uncharacteristic front camera. The phone will be sold starting this December in India, Asia and the Middle East at equivalent costs of $55 (approximately Rs 3660).

The Nokia 230 will be sold in the form single as well as dual SIM models, just like all other recent feature phones from Microsoft. This handset features a shortcut key for activating its camera.

Nokia has blessed the handset with an aluminum back cover which can be silver or dark silver in color. Its front is adorned by a 2.8-inch display, while the facility of FM radio has also been added, much to the delight of daily listeners of radio shows.
