Nokia 3310 relaunched at Mobile World Congress 2017, nostalgic moment for the industry

Leave a Comment
If you were born in the 90s, you must remember the popular 'brick' phone by Nokia. If not, you might know of your parents owning one. Yes, I am talking about the Nokia 3310. That was the time when phones were meant to break the floor they fall on, and not to get smashed to pieces themselves (this is not true, but I am sure you understand what I mean). HMD Global, the team that now uses the Nokia brand name, has relaunched the iconic feature phone at the ongoing Mobile World Congress. Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 are also announced.

The device comes with a 2.4-inch QVGA(320×240 pixels) display. It is an upgrade to the original model which featured a monochromatic screen. It comes in single and dual-SIM variants. The newer model is flatter and rounder in comparison to its predecessor.

16 MB internal storage powers the Nokia 3310. It is expandable up to 32 GB via microSD card slot, which is a first when it comes to feature phones.

The primary camera is a 2 MP lens with LED flash, yet another first for feature phones. We do not expect a secondary camera, and there is none.

The phone is packed with 1,200 mAh battery. If the company claims are to be believed, the expected standby time is 31 days (one full month!) while the talk time is 22 hours. The device runs on Nokia Series 30+ operating system. The famous Snake game has also made its way back and is available on this phone by default.

Nokia 3310 comes in red and yellow color variants with a glossy finish and blue and gray with the matte finish

Nokia 3310 comes in red and yellow color variants with a glossy finish and blue and gray with the matte finish. It is priced at €49 ($52/₹3,500 approx.). It will be available second quarter onwards later this year.
