Nokia 3310 is back after 17 years
HMD Global not only wants to bring smartphones under the name of Nokia, but also simple mobile phones: With the Nokia 3310, the company has reissued a classic. The user interface is also similar to the one on the original versions. The phone costs 49 euros ($52)
Like the original, the new Nokia 3310 is a simple phone and not a smartphone. The telephone is mainly used for telephone calls and newsletters. The Series 30+ is used as the operating system.
The mobile phone has a 2.4 inch screen, which is particularly good to read in the light. The user interface reminds you of earlier Nokia GUIs with its label at the bottom and the app icons, but looks more modern. The keyboard is a classic number pad.
The new 3310 reminds us of its form only to its model: It becomes thicker to the middle, but not as strong as the original model. The phone supports only the GSM network. UMTS, LTE or even WLAN does not supported on the device. According to the Chinese product page, the internal memory is 16 MB, but there is a slot for Micro SD cards.
The 3310 has been pre-installed with the Snake game, as well as an FM radio and an MP3 player. On the back is a 2-megapixel camera built-in. As usual with feature phones, the recharge time should be very long: the manufacturer provides a talk time of 22 hours as well as a standby time of one month.
The Nokia 3310 is to come for 50 euros. HMD Global announces the second quarter of 2017 as a publication period.
