HMD Global has finally confirmed that sales for the iconic Nokia 3310 device will begin on May 18, 2017, in India — one of the company’s (former) largest markets in the world.

The reprised version of the Nokia 3310 was officially introduced to the world at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain, alongside Nokia 3, 5 and 6 devices.

The reboot was targeted towards sturdy-built Nokia lovers, and corroborating with earlier reports, the company delivered on the rumours of Nokia 3310’s reprise — a device which was first launched in 2000.

Launched at €49 in the European market, the Nokia 3310 has received a similar price tag at Rs.3310 in the India market.

“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.

Key Features

Feature phones are still relevant in the developing countries — both as a primary as well as a secondary device — thanks to their relatively longer battery life compared to their smart counterparts.

  • Display: Nokia’s new unveiling sports a 2.4-inch QVGA curved display, which is covered with a polarised layer to make for better reading in the sunlight.
  • Battery: The device is powered by a 1200mAh battery, which is charged via a micro-USB port. The company claims that the battery lasts for 31 days on standby, 22 hours of talk time and 51 hours of music playback.
  • Storage: The Nokia 3310 has 16MB of built-in memory which can be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card.
  • Camera: The device sports a modest 2MP camera with LED flash.
  • OS and Audio: The Nokia 3310 reboot is going to run on Nokia Series 30+ operating system, houses a 3.5mm jack to connect your headphones.
  • Wireless Connectivity: The device also has Bluetooth 3.0 tech with SLAM and runs on 2G connectivity.
  • It comes in a dual-sim variant (microSIM).

“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,” he added.

The device is available in four colours: Warm Red and Yellow (both with glossy finish), and Dark Blue and Grey (both with matte finish).

Although this seems like a sweet deal, it would’ve been an even better deal if it was priced a little lower.
