Nokia 3310 Launch: What's New In This 2017 Version?

Take HMD, for instance: The company showed three new Android phones, but the one that got the most attention was the rebooted Nokia 3310, which is essentially a lowly, cheap feature phone.

The popular Nokia was re-launched in a more modern version although the similarities between the version launched 17 years ago are obvious.

Unlike the refreshed mobile version which features colours, a new logo and slicker graphics the Facebook version is a call back to the old-school green- tinged monochromatic style. Also, the same old Nokia ringtones are inside the phone. The Nokia 3310 has a removable 1,200mAh battery that can last for 31 days on standby and offer 22 hours of talk time. The revamped device is similar to its predecessor and therefore a "feature", or budget-friendly phone by today's standards. And it will cost only €59, naturally. You have the usual Snake game with an updated version. But, Nokia 3310 has become the main highlight of the event.

Nokia hosted a press conference in Barcelona yesterday as part of MWC 2017, and during it, the company introduced four new smartphones.

Remember the unalderated joy of playing Snake hour after hour? Its convex shape looks something like a Russian matryoshka doll, and its thin plastic profile should make it easier to handle when compared to other options on the market. 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. The phone has Micro USB (2.0) for connectivity as well as Bluetooth 3.0 with SLAM. It is not for those who want to carry latest smart phones but it is modest of all.

Glossy red and yellow colors, and matte grey and dark blue colors.
