Nokia 3310 Launched at MWC17 as a “feature phone” rather than a smartphone as it only provides limited internet facilities.
The new Nokia 3310 takes the iconic silhouette of the original and reimagines it for 2017. The custom designed user interface brings a fresh look to a classic, whilst the 2.4” polarized and curved screen window makes for better readability in sunlight.
Nokia 3310 Specifications:
It relies on 2.5G connectivity – which has slower data speeds than 3G or 4G – and is powered by the S30+ operating system, which allows web browsing but has a much smaller range of apps than Android or iOS. It also has 2MP rear camera.
The revamped version will be sold under license by the Finnish start-up HMD Global, which also unveiled several Nokia-branded Android smartphones.
Nokia 3310 is powerful handsets with its battery life. HMD says the color screen phone has up to a month’s standby time and delivers more than 22 hours of talk time. Still, it’s thinner and lighter than its predecessor, though Nokia claims it’s still as durable as before. It’ll be offered in four colors: warm red and yellow are both gloss-finish, while dark blue and grey each have a matte finish. The display is now full color rather than black and white original.
It also comes with the modern version of the classic Snake game preinstalled. On that display you’ll be able to play classic games like Snake, though if you’re a fan of the tail-chasing title you won’t actually need the new Nokia 3310 to get it. Nokia has released it as a free Facebook Messenger game today, and you’ll be able to find it under the Games tab on the IM (Instant Messenger) app. It now supports multi-player, too, so that several people in the same conversation can all play it at once.
The new Nokia 3310 also has the classic Nokia ringtone – you know the one they’re talking about, in fact you probably heard it in your head when you read this.
If you need a long-lasting phone for emergencies, or a device that’s tough and safe enough for a child to use.Its launch price is €49 (Rs.3448) worldwide and release date are yet to be confirmed.
