Nokia 3310 (2017) in Pictures

Besides unveiling its devices, it looks like Nokia is focused a lot on the Indian market as it considers the same as a significant market for its growth. The smartphones also come at price points which will be noticed all over the world. Now, at the ongoing Mobile World Congress in Barcelon, HMD Global is launching three more Nokia phones and all the eyes are on the 2017 avatar of 3310.

The new Nokia 3310 is a dual SIM 2.5G feature phone with 1200 mAH battery that promises around 22 hours of talk time with one-time full charge. To be available in 4 colours, the Nokia 3310 will allow users to play iconic games like Snake as well.

Critics said the modern handset is lighter and more colorful, with options in red, yellow, blue and gray, CNN reports.

The budget Android phone with premium design and right now the cheapest Nokia Android phone in the market.

The Nokia 6 will launch in Q2 priced at €229 (around £185), while a special iPhone-esque glossy black edition will be made available for €299 (around £250).

Unlike the original, the new Nokia 3310 gets a 2-megapixel rear camera and a 3.5mm audio jack. Well, a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor.

What does the re-launch of a 17-year-old feature phone say about the state of today's smartphones?

This being the modern, global phone economy, HMD doesn't actually make any of the new phones either.

Other games on the original include Pairs II, Space Impact and Bantumi, which are not known to be included in the new model. The old 3310, meanwhile, sports a 1.5-inch monochrome graphic screen with a 84 x 48 resolution.

- The phone has 16GB internal storage.

They certainly seemed keen to put the past behind them during their press conference, when they excitedly announced the new handsets would be running Google's Android - "at last!"

Huawei took wraps off of its much acclaimed P10 and P10 Plus at the MWC Event in Barcelona, which differs only by their screen size and battery capacity.

It comes with a long-lasting battery.

Both phones are powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 960 SoC and Mali-G71MP GPU.
