After teasing for quite a few weeks, HMD Global has finally introduced the iconic Nokia 3310 in a redesigned form. The new Nokia 3310 has elements similar to the old model, but it comes in a fresh range of colours.
“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-inch polarised and curved screen window makes for better readability in sunlight,” says Nokia.
The new phone boasts 22 hours of talktime and and one month of standby time. The Nokia 3310 is available in four colours - Warm Red and Yellow (both with a gloss finish), and Dark Blue and Grey (both with a matte finish). The phone comes with a micro-USB port for charging.
Like the old Nokia 3310, the redesigned model also comes with the classic Snake game. Besides, HMD Global, the new maker of Nokia phones, has also announced that the Snake game will be making its way back into people’s hearts with a new version available to play on Messenger. Also, the new free Snake game is designed to be played with groups of friends making it even more playable than the first time around.
Other features of the new Nokia 3310 include a 2 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, headphone jack, 2G connectivity, FM radio, MP 3 player, 16MB storage with a MicroSD card support for up to 32GB.
The Nokia 3310 will go on sale in the second quarter of this year at 49 euros. It will be available in both single and dual SIM variants.
Besides the relaunch of the Nokia 3310, HMD Global has also announced the first set of Nokia-branded Android phones - Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6.
