Nokia Asha 500, Asha 502, and Asha 503 were unveiled yesterday and unlike their Asha 501 predecessor, feature a box-like layer of transparent polycarbonate surrounding the standard colored casing that complement the characteristic flashy Nokia colors.
These three devices, which essentially are slightly revamped versions of the Asha 501 let you quickly access the camera directly by swiping up from the lockscreen. You can also swipe left and right to access snapped images and camcorder mode, respectively, and there’s also one tap sharing to Facebook.

The Asha 503 comes also with 5MP camera but with 3G connectivity support, as well as Gorilla Glass 2 screen protection. It’ll come in both single and dual-SIM variants.
