Nokia said the new Lumia 720 will start at €249 and features a 4.3-inch curved laminated display and rear-facing 6.7-megapixel camera paired with Carl Zeiss optics.

Nokia 301 runs on a Symbian S40 operating system and features preloaded apps such as Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp.

Nokia president and chief executive officer, Stephen Elop said, "The momentum behind Nokia is gathering pace. The launches today reflect our commitment to broadening our devices and services portfolio to meet the demands of people and businesses around the globe."

"By offering better experiences at a more affordable price we are reinventing the battle for affordable mobile devices, and Nokia has the building blocks to win."

In December last year, Nokia released its new Microsoft’s Windows 8 powered entry-level Lumia 620 smartphone.
