Legendary Nokia 3310 With 4G Capabilities Launched
Nokia 3310 4G variant has been launched in China after weeks of speculations. HMD Global has listed the device on official Nokia website and has partnered with China Mobile. The global availability and price of the phone are likely to be announced at MWC 2018.
The new 3310 4G will be available in two colour variants, Fresh Blue and Deep Black. The previous variant of the phone was launched in four colours, Warm Red and Yellow (both with a gloss finish), and Dark Blue and Grey (both with a matte finish). The other difference between the 2G version and the new one is the OS. The new one runs YunOS, which is a forked Android version built by China’s Alibaba. The older variant runs Nokia Series 30+ OS and its 3G variant runs Java-based Feature OS. The feature phone also comes preloaded with an MP3 player.
The new Nokia 3310 has a 2.4 inch QVGA colour display with a 320 x 240 px resolution.
Compared to 16MB storage available on its original 2G version, the new 4G variant has 256MB of RAM and 512MB of onboard storage. The storage is expandable up to 64GB via a microSD card. These specifications seem archaic in today’s world where we might witness a smartphone with 10GB of RAM.
The original Nokia 3310 was launched in 2000 and over the years, has gained a cult status. Not just tech enthusiasts but, people all over the internet have made the Nokia 3310 famous, owing to its “indestructible” build quality.
