The 208 features the same candybar design as the Nokia 207, with a 2.4 inch display at 320 x 240-pixel resolution, and a splash-proof 12 button keypad but features a 1.3 Megapixel camera (which has voice-guided self-portrait, sequential shot and panorama mode), and a dual-SIM variant which would offer hot swappable SIM card functionality. There’s a two-part construction, similar to that of the Nokia Lumia 520, where you can change the back panel.
