The phone was everybody’s favorite because of its sturdiness, durability and long-lasting battery.
2017 marks 17 years after its debut, since then, 125 Million was sold until it was phased out in 2005.
Around February 2017, Nokia, under HMD took a brilliant move to resurrect the old Nokia 3310 into a new revamped and improved model.
Why the New Nokia 3310 is Amazing
- Although the phone is only qualified the be a feature phone, not a middle or a high-end smartphone. It runs on the S30+ operating systems.
- On release, it relied on 2.5G connectivity, which has slower data speeds than 3G or 4G – But on September, a 3G version was released which will complement the numerous complaints about the 2.5G connectivity on this mobile.
- It possesses a single camera which is restricted to two megapixels.
- It has 16MB storage and supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 32GB). It packs a removable 1200mAh.
The phone has a very big advantage over other bigger handsets with its battery life. HMD says the colour-screened phone has up to a month’s standby time and delivers more than 22 hours of talk time.
And also, you remember the old popular snake game on the old Nokia 3310, this new revamped phone has a modern version of the classic game pre-installed.
The announcement was made ahead of the start of the Mobile World Congress tech show in Barcelona. Its launch price is €49,$51; £41.51.
The new Nokia 3310 (2017) will be launched in India in Q2 2017, and come in four color options – Warm Red, Yellow, Dark Blue, and Grey.
Is Nokia really on their way back to being one of the World’s biggest smartphone brands? From all indications they are, but they can never fully regain their previous reputation back.
