As expected, HMD Global has brought the legendary Nokia 3310 back to India and it’s now available for a price tag of (surprise, surprise) Rs 3310 (best buy price). The feature phone will be on sale across all major stores starting Thursday, May 18th in Yellow, Grey, Blue and Red color options.
The Nokia 3310 largely attempts to re-establish the long-lost mobile brand’s image in India with the nostalgic factor which becomes even more apparent through the price tag. As far as the hardware is concerned, there’s a 2.4-inch QVGA (240×320 pixels) color display and it runs on the Series 30+ operating system. Moreover, it comes with a 2MP rear camera along with a LED flash and 16MB of inbuilt storage. Fortunately, it is compatible with a MicroSD card up to 32GB. It is powered by a 1200mAh battery which is rated to deliver up to 22 hours talk time and one-month standby time.
The new Nokia 3310 also supports two micro SIM cards, Bluetooth v3.0, Micro USB for charging and of course, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. Weighing at about 79.6 grams, it drops the chunkier and so-called indestructible design of the previous generation. However, it does retain the Snake game, which obviously, is updated with color graphics.
Nokia 3310 (2017) was originally announced a couple of months ago at this year’s Mobile World Congress and shared the limelight with a range of other smartphones Nokia will be soon releasing. The company is also expected to bring the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 in the coming weeks.
“Talk all day on a single charge, send texts, take pictures and enjoy a pocket jukebox with a built-in FM Radio and MP3 player. Our reinvention of this classic design is sure to make you smile. It’s got everything you remember, but with a modern twist. So whether you’re after a feature phone that offers amazing battery life in a head turning design or a companion phone, the Nokia 3310 won’t let you down,” said Ajey Mehta, VP-India, HMD Global.
