Nokia 3310 2017 officially launched
The Nokia mobile phone brand is now owned by a new company and while we will be seeing some Android smartphone offerings the big news is the official relaunch of the Nokia 3310 for 2017.
We reported recently about how new owners HMD had plans for a Nokia 3310 reboot, and now at the Mobile World Congress that is currently taking place in, Barcelona, the new Nokia 3310 has been officially launched by the company.
The new handset is obviously still a feature handset so don’t expect a touchscreen and a wealth of apps, but the device has some new welcome features. The design has been brought up to date with a slimmer profile and lighter body with a 2.4-inch QVGA colour display.
This display has been covered by curved window that has a polarized layer to improve viewing in sunlight. Other additions include a headphone jack, microUSB port, and a microSD slot under the removable rear cover for cards up to 32GB.
There is also a rear 2-megapixel camera that only features a digital zoom, and it will be available in the original blue, grey, and the new yellow and warm red colour options. It measures 115.6mm x 51.0mm x 12.8mm weighing only 79.6g, and will only cost £35.
Battery life is promised to be 31 days of standby and 22 hours of talk time, which compares to the original that provided 11 days of standby and 2.5 hours of talk. The new 2017 Nokia 3310 has been given a release date of between April and June.
The operating system is the Nokia Series 30+ which keeps things basic, and there is also a new version of Snake that has been treated to colour and some new levels. There is only 2.5G connectivity with no Wi-Fi on board.
