HMD Global announced today in China the new Nokia 3310 4G. After originally seeing the new 2G variant of the popular phone at MWC2017, and later seeing the 3G variant announced for some markets, HMD decided to make a 4G variant, with better specifications and higher usability, but, at the moment, just for China.
The new Nokia 3310 comes with a 2.4-inch display, and has the same dimensions as Nokia 3310 3G – 117 x 52.4 x 13.35mm, but is 4 grams heavier (88g). The phone retains the same look and, I presume, feel as the original 3310 (2017), but is just a little bigger in size. Internals are updated, so the 4G variant comes with 256MB of RAM, 512MB of internal memory and supports, alongside 4G, VoLTE, WiFi and the hotspot feature.
The battery size stayed the same at 1200mAh, just like the camera at 2MP. Bluetooth 4.0 and Radio are on board, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack and a MicroSD card slot. The device runs YunOS and Nokia mentions that the phone comes pre-loaded with popular apps.
The device should be available in February via Chine Mobile retail channels for a, yet undisclosed, price in blue and black colors. It’s interesting that the official site just mentions blue and black, but on the photo above we see yellow and red, too.
There is no info when or, rather, if we will see this device globally. The fact that it runs YunOS, that is mainly popular in China, could be a downside for the global market. If HMD plans to unveil the 3310 4G globally, that could happen at the upcoming MWC2018 event next month in Barcelona. Maybe with a different OS, too.
What do you think about the 3310 4G? Tell us down below.
Thanks everyone for the tip.
