*Update* Nokia TA-1077 is the 4G version of Nokia 3310. It will run YuanOS!

Nokia TA-1077 that passed the certification process yesterday is the 4G version of the iconic Nokia 3310. The photos of the device have just been released on the official TENAA pages. As you imagined there arenโ€™t any big differences from the standard 3310 (2017). The biggest difference for now is the support for 4G networks, and this marks the new era of 4G feature phones.

Here are the photos released by TENAA.

The specific release day is not known, but I would bet it will be in the first 10 days of 2018.ย Who ever knew we will have 4G Nokia 3310.

The post will be updated when I find more info about the device ;).

 

*Update*

New info about the 4G version of the 3310 surfaced thanks to VTechgrapgy. The dimensions of the device stayed the same (117 x 52.4 x 13.35 mm), screen diagonal (2.4 inch) and so did the battery capacity. The biggest change is YunOS which replaced Feature OS and s30+ that was present in 3G and 2G version, respectively. This OS is being used on some full screen devices and it’s able to run some apps that are present on Android platform. Does this mean that 4G version of 3310 will be able to run Whatsapp? Really don’t know, but we will know more in the next 20 days for sure.

Update 2: The 3310 4G will likely support WiFi, too. Check rest of the specs here.

  • 3rd iteration of the device.
    At last got it right.

    waiting for 2018 lineup.

  • Muerte

    Got to ask; they have a global research team (or consults doing it for them) and only after one year of quite loud customer feedback they realize that the customers actually give credit to connectivity? What are the consults doing and who are they interviewing? ๐Ÿ™‚

    (I’m saying this, because after the launch of the first new 3310 this was roughly HMD’s answer: we have done thorough research and this was the best option to be published)

    Disclaimer: I don’t have the sales numbers, so it may very well be that from business and volume point of view 2G 3310 was the best option.

    • Jiipee

      I can understand the original answer. They had to get products out and the OS Microsoft had chosen to replace S30 didn’t have support for 3G.
      If the rumor on 4G version running YunOS instead of the OS on 3G version or on the possible new Qwerty device, I can’t anymore understand what they are doing ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Nokia 3310 (2017) was great marketing trick and most successful one. It spread the word about Nokia comeback faster than Nokia 6.

  • Kimo Timonen

    This time would be the right one for rename it in 3330 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Hemedans

    am worried about malware/spying/backdoor etc it will hurt Nokia name. they should use stock android go and modifiy launcher.

    • Me too.

    • Probably they thought this over and will make it safe if it isn’t… HMD wouldn’t gamble with it

      • Maybe it will be only for the chinese market. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • In China, every OS has a backdoor for the government. Globally, it could be problematic.

      • Why do you think that Android didn’t have any backdoor for the American govt?

        • Don’t think that, it’s just that US denies such statements, while China puts them as requirements. Wikileaks showed us what governments (and companies) do ๐Ÿ™‚

          • This can also be the reason why we lost Symbian and Meego?? Only US based operating systems are available now.

          • But Windows Phone still died. It’s more about changing with the new technology. I think we shouldn’t bring in the sad old discussions of how Symbian was better and Android wasn’t and the likes ๐Ÿ™‚
            But yes, governments have always been like that. The FBI is already in the courts to force Apple to allow unlocking of the phones from which FBI wants to retrieve data. Now God knows if this is only a public drama and they actually have the key to get into the phone :p

          • I didn’t start the Symbian is better than Android topic now. ๐Ÿ˜›
            Everything is public drama. Apple is a wolf among Sheep/iSheep.

  • Stinger

    Great stuff.

  • Viccky Maurya

    It means TA-1047 would also run YunOS. Very disappointed. ๐Ÿ˜‘. Btw, can Sailfish OS work on this phone?

    • I assume YunOS to be for China only. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • HMD would not spend on developing a port of Sailfish for a device as cheap as the 3310. Sailfish is also a swipe and all-touch OS. So are the apps build for the platform. So, a device with buttons will miss 90% of the Sailfish’s functionality.

    Are the images of ta 1062 available??

    • No, TA-1062 didn’t appear at tenaa

  • The YunOS is a big step forward. S30/40 are so outdated that they don’t stand much in the modern world.

    • Nokia 3310 4g will be the 1st non touch/feature phone with YunOS. S30 is outdated but S40 was a good OS for both touch(asha) and non touch devices. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • S40 is just the same S30 with some improvements. App gap will give it no chance to stand anymore. A touch phone which can’t even open PDF files isn’t welcome in 2018.

        I wonder how fair YunOS will do on the 3310 if it’s the first non-touch device to run it. I now doubt for the news being true. Seems more or less like a clerical mistake while uploading the details on website.

        • Do you really think that people who will own a Nokia 3310 4G will open pdf files on a 2.4″ device? It will mostly be used as a secondary device.
          I am not sure about it being the 1st non touch device. BTW Lava has a 4G android feature phone too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Is there anyone who has received Oreo beta update nokia 6??

    • Not available yet. Nokia 5 started beta test much sooner so it received the update. Official Oreo is soon to be released since beta is supported only in next few days.
