New Nokia 3310: Everything we know so far

HMD Global has confirmed that the new Nokia 3310 will be available in India in the second quarter this year for 49 euros (roughly Rs. 3,500). The battery was a huge selling point for the original Nokia 3310. The re-released device will reportedly have "22 hours of talk time with a one-month battery life on standby" and, yes, Snake will be back as well, according to Wired. That sounds a lot like the original, but that's where the similarities end. It has a 2.4-inch display and a single camera, which is restricted to two megapixels. Like its predecessor, it will still be called the Nokia 3310, but this time it's running Nokia's Series 30+ software, with a 2.4-inch QVGA display, a 2-megapixel camera, and even a microSD slot.

Best of all: It has Snake! The Nokia 3310 comes in four color options that include Warm Red (Glossy), Dark Blue (Matte), Yellow (Glossy), and Grey (Matte).

The Nokia 6 is set to retail at €229, while the Nokia 5 will cost €179 and the smaller Nokia 3 will cost just €139. Still, the previous rumors did not spoiled the look of the new Nokia 3310, a phone that HMD Global chose to revive.

The new phones are not manufactured and sold by Nokia but by HMD Global, another Finnish company, which has licensed the Nokia brand. The new Nokia 3310 seems to live by the same ideal, but only in an extremely bright skin.

The updated version of Nokia 3310 is back and took internet by storm.

Once the biggest mobile phone manufacturer in the world, Nokia had fallen on hard times after they made a decision to steer clear of Android in the favour of Windows Phone. The aim is open Nokia up to the next-generation of consumers not by embarking on a "tech and spec race" but through a "new, inspiring, purpose-led approach centred around stories".

And, gets some new-age features fit for 2017. For these new phones, Nokia's put an emphasis on getting premium quality but without needing to pay flagship prices.
