The Nokia 3310 was launched last year along with a bunch of Android smartphones by HMD Global. The only purpose it served was to bring back nostalgia for fans as the phone came with just 2G connectivity. There was another version of the phone that came with 3G a few months ago. Nokia has now officially announced an updated version to the iconic phone which will come with support for 4G. It is currently available in China but global availability and other details will probably be announced in the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in February. Apart from having support for 4G, the new phone has a lot of other upgrades over the 2G version, let’s take a look at them below.
Nokia is known to offer phones in vibrant colours and this one comes in Fresh Blue and Deep Black. Design of the phone is identical to the previous version of the phone. It has a 2.4-inch QVGA colour display having a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels.
The older versions of the 3310 ran on Java-based Feature OS but the 4G variant will run on YunOS. This operating system is a forked version of Android and is built by Alibaba. Talking of the storage, the phone has got 512MB of internal storage which can also be expanded up to 64GB. This is a huge upgrade from the 2G model as it had only 16MB of internal storage. The 3310 4G comes with 256MB of RAM to ensure that it manages to perform smoothly. It also comes with an MP3 player built-in.
The Nokia 3310 4G has a 2-megapixel rear camera along with an LED flash. Usually Nokia cameras are pretty good so you can expect decent images from the phone considering it’s a feature phone.
It comes with a 1200mAh battery so you can expect around five hours of talktime on a 4G network and music playback of up to 16 hours on a single charge. Talking of connectivity, it has 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, a micro USB port for charging and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Now that the new Nokia 3310 comes with 4G VoLTE connectivity, will you opt for it over other feature phones? Let us know in the comments below.
