The Nokia 3310 was popular for its long battery life and sturdy build.
The new Nokia 3310 3G variant is expected to launch soon in India.
Nokia 3310 (2017) with support for 3G connectivity has been launched in Australia. This hints us that Nokia might have a 4G LTE capable feature phone is in works specifically for the Indian market. For the same reason, the 3G variant of the phone has different software than the 2G variant of the phone. Our fans around the world have been asking for this iconic phone to support 3G. "Fans asked, we listened, and today welcome the Nokia 3310 3G", said Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global.
The new Nokia 3310 3G costs AUD 89.95 (roughly Rs. 4,600) in Australia, while its global price will be Euro 69 (about Rs. 5,320). It'll retail for for €69 ($80.95/AU$$89.95). The firm has not yet revealed the India price and availability for the 3G variant. HMD Global, the business vehicle established specifically to create and market Nokia-branded mobile devices, has announced a new 3G version of the class Nokia 3310 feature phone.
In a dose of pure Nokia nostalgia, the Nokia 3310 also comes with a refreshed version of the Snake game. It was a dual micro GSM phone with connectivity options of Bluetooth and FM. The feature phone was literally useless in many countries where the telecom operators do not provide 2G support. New colours for the 3310 have also been added, with Azure and Charcoal hues on offer with matt finished as new silver keypads.
Everything more or less remain same, however, there is improvement in the 3G version. It was old, yet new, with a similar feature set to the original Y2K handset and the same "awesome battery" but delivered a colour screen, 2MP rear camera with flash, slim and light 12.8mm profile, and microSD card slot.
