The device costs only $29 (Roughly #5,400 Nigerian Nairas) and will be available in Africa, Asia, Middle-East, and Europe.
The handset comes in two variants, Nokia 215 with single SIM support and Nokia 215 Dual with dual-SIM support, both device have the same specifications other than that the first support only one SIM card, while the other support two SIMs at a time.
