What is new with Nokia 3310 ?

Despite all the hype about all the other smartphones that are expected to unveiled at MWC this year, the most excitement is reserved for the relaunch of one of India's oldest and prominent feature phone the Nokia 3310. Nokia has scheduled a launch event right before Mobile World Congress or MWC 2017 kicks off in Barcelona, Spain this year and the event is scheduled on the 26th of February.

It is speculated that the new 3310, which will feature the same "indestructible" body and long-lasting battery as the original, will retail for 59 Euros (USD 62 or Rs 4300 approximately).

Chinese technology site Vtech leaked tit-bits of tantalising information online, including the fact it will not run android, but will be a "feature" phone.

The phone's case is set to mimic the weight and size of the original Nokia 3310 and will be available in yellow, blue, red and green. It will be slimmer and lighter than the original. The new version will come in two variants, which will have two different screen sizes.

HMD Global is said to prepare a comeback for the legendary Nokia 3310 phone and some details about the device leaked yesterday.

The 3310 was one of Nokia's most popular candy bar phones. The interface will be colorful, not monochromatic as in the case of the classic Nokia 3310.


There are rumours that HMD owned Nokia is planning to launch Nokia 3310 in a new avatar. At this year's MWC, Nokia is also supposed to officially announce a new Nokia 3310.

Speculations suggest that the device is going to be a oval shaped one, however, as rumored earlier, it is not going to be an Android device.

Online speculation suggests Nokia plans to reintroduce the phone alongside a more premium device as an affordable second phone option, creating a wave of nostalgia in the process.

Not only that, the rumor also shows that Nokia 3310 may come in swappable faceplates, which was pretty famous a feature in old Nokia device.
