Microsoft has released a feature phone with a 2-megapixel selfie camera—the Nokia 230.

The front of the Nokia 230 shares a fairly similar design as the Nokia 225, but the former has a more premium feel thanks to its aluminum back cover. Microsoft has emphasized that the Nokia 230 has two 2-megapixel cameras, whereas the company’s previous, similar offerings only have just the one.

The Nokia 230 is no smartphone; there’s no arguing that. It is, however, an Internet-enabled feature phone with social networking apps: Facebook, Twitter, and GroupMe by Skype. It comes with the Opera Store that offers its own collection of mobile games.
