Unannounced Nokia Asha 500 press photo leaked, shows WhatsApp is coming to new Asha phones

Nokia seems to be readying a new Asha device called the Asha 500, and popular leakster @evleaks has leaked its first press photo to the world. But for once instead of the device, it’s what is seen on the phone’s display that is grabbing the headlines. The display clearly shows the WhatsApp icon, which is a clear indication that the social messaging app is finally coming to the new Asha phones like the 501 and the forthcoming Asha 500.

One of the most requested features on the new Asha OS was the social messaging app and this news will go a long way in boosting the sales figures. Talking of the phone, the Asha 500 will be available with dual-SIM card slots and has a glossy back panel similar to the one seen on the Lumia 620.

Details are scarce and apart from the above there’s no other information available at the moment.
