Earlier in February, Nokia unleashed Nokia 3310 along with the new Nokia 6, 5 and 3. HMD Global-promoted Nokia reintroduced our much-loved phone in a new look along with the Snake game at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona. Although, we are still awaiting the Nokia 8 and Nokia 9, their specs, price and release date have been leaked.
The sales will begin in Germany on April 28, but it seems like the Indians just can’t wait for their favorite Nokia 3310. OnlyMobiles, an Indian retailer, has set the price of Nokia 3310 at Rs. 3,899. Sarcastic the mobile is still at “coming soon” tag, but it is already available in India. HMD Global Nokia has not yet made any official announcement about the price or availability for the device in India. The pre-bookings will start from May 5th and delivered around May 17th.
What’s the difference between new Nokia 3310 and the original one? Well, new one is much slimmer and tougher and has a 2.4-inch QVGA display with Nokia’s Series 30+ OS. Instead of a black and white display, new one will have color display and apps like WhatsApp can be used on it. It also includes 16GB of internal storage (expandable upto 32GB by microSD card) and a 2MP rear camera supported with an LED flash.
New Nokia 3310 will have a 1200mAh battery that can last around 31 days of standby life, a whole month!
Nokia 3310 price is not “unexpected”, it had to be fall under this price range. On the other hand, the phone on the store has been described as available in Warm Red, Dark Blue, Yellow and Grey color variants. It also describes the warranty period of 12 months from Nokia India.
