New Nokia 3310 Feature Phone with 3G Support Launched at Rs. 5350

Apart from the rumors of the launch of a bezel-less Nokia 9 flagship phone, the Finnish firm is also expected to unveil Nokia 2 entry-level phone.

This feature was something that was sorely lacking from the new Nokia 3310 (2017) that HMD Global (the brand behind Nokia phones) launched at MWC this year, because it meant that it wouldn't be able to work on some networks in the future.

The iconic 3310 by Nokia is being relaunched in Singapore with an additional 3G data connection, confirmed HMD Global Oy on September 28. The handset will hit retail in a number of color options, including Yellow, Warm Red, Azure and Charcoal hues. Each sports a new silver keypad. Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global posted a couple of images of Nokia 8 with Android 8.0 Oreo update recently. The all-new Nokia 3310 3G has been propelled for the Australian market, and is probably going to be made accessible in more markets.

When Will it be Available?

Continuing with its efforts to regain lost market and loyalty in different geographies, HMD Global, a Finland based firm which now owns Nokia device business has introduced a 3G version of Nokia 3310. To be manufactured in India, Nokia 8 is the company's most expensive smartphone till date. The screen above it will be a 2.4-inch QVGA curved window with polarised layer for better sunlight legibility.

Nokia 3310 3G boasts a 1,200mAh removable battery cell, which should offer users 6.5 hours of continuous talk time.

The Nokia 3310 3G runs Feature OS, which is powered by Java.

It is speculated to be available for purchase from mid-October.

There is a great news in store for Nokia fans who were reluctant to buy the Nokia 3310 due to the glacial speed of 2.5 G networks.

The camera doesn't impress: Back in the 3310's heyday, a 2MP camera would have felt like a revelation, but in 2017, it doesn't really make the grade. There are both single SIM and dual SIM support and connectivity options such as Bluetooth, micro USB and 3.5mm audio jack.
