Nokia 3310, the phone which was sold over 126 million copies, has came back! HMD, which is in contract to make Nokia phones for 10 years announced Nokia 3310 on Mobile World Congress 2017. On the same event, they also announced Nokia 6.
The legend phone known as Thor’s hammer was announced originally on 1st September, 2000. Nokia stopped producing this model in 2005. But in this time, it was sold more than 126 million copies. But we still don’t know why Nokia took it out. Earlier this year at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Nokia relaunched the phone. Newer version is thinner than the previous one, it’s more smart and have the game Snake!
This 3310 uses 2.5G communication system. Which means, you can connect to internet but won’t be able to get a good internet speed. Here’s a little problem, you can’t use messenger, snapchat or any kind of good quality android or iOS apps. You can only surf some websites through Opera Mini browser. For texting, you have to use the default messaging system which can be operated by it’s alphanumeric keyboard. You need to pound a key 3/4 times to get the right character. Ready to go back to 90’s style?
Other than communication system, it has some built in apps. You can use calculator, know the weather forecast, take notes, listen to FM Radio and you can use the camera too! The back camera is 2.0 Megapixel and it doesn’t have any front camera. It has a micro SD slot for memory cards. You can also store music and listen to them! Yes, it has a 3.5mm headphone jack, unlike iPhone 7. The sound is pretty loud, so an alarm of new Nokia 3310 can surely wake you up! It have the Snake game too! Not exactly like the original one, but this color screen will let you help play snakes smoothly. This game was developed by Gameloft. So don’t expect the exact snake game in this newer version of 3310.
This version is not only thinner, it weights less too! New 3310 is 79g while the original was 133g. Priced at €49 ($51) the phone has a release date set for the second quarter of 2017. You can sign up to receive updates on when the phone is being released on at nokia.com/phones.
