Just as promised, Nokia has resurrected its once best seller into the modern times — the Nokia 3310 sold 126 million of its original 3310 phone since it was first introduced back in September, 2000. These were good old days before touchscreens became very popular, and Nokia ruled with popular handsets that let you play simple games like Snake. The nostalgic return of the 3310 thanks to Nokia-branded phone maker HMD comes with a few features. It runs, Nokia’s Series 30+ software, with a 2.4-inch QVGA display, a 2-megapixel camera, and even a microSD slot.
Its true, that the specs are still very basic by today’s modern phone standards, but for a feature phone there should be no fuss about specs. The new modern variant is a little smaller, thinner, and lighter all round. It’s also a lot more colorful this time around, with glossy yellow and red colors, and matte grey and dark blue models.
Battery life for days
The phone comes pre-loaded with Opera Mini which enables users to enjoy a basic web surfing experience. But just like the olden days the real selling point is battery life. The phone has a standby time of 31 days, alongside a talk time of 22 hours. That’s a massive amount of battery life. HMD is planning to make the new Nokia 3310 available in Q2 this year for 49 euros which is about UGX 190,000 (this is of course minus taxes).
