The Asha 503 joins the Asha 500, Asha 502 as well as previously launched Asha 501, to redefine smartphone ‘affordability.’

The Asha 503 features a full-touch display and fully redesigned UI. You’ll be impressed with the fluid, gesture-driven interface.

Integrated camera filters and photo editing apps like Picfeed, Pictag, Photofunia (downloadable for free from the Nokia Store) make photo-taking and social photo-sharing easy on the Asha platform.

Impressively, the Asha 503 also includes a 4GB microSD card, and can be expanded to up to 32GB of additional memory.

Fastlane is Asha’s unique second screen that is a shortcut to recently accessed apps, features and content, as well as activity like calendar appointments. It’s a fast track to accessing an app in its last state, as well as acting as a social hub for all your social network live updates.
