I know that many of you, including me, would love to see the unboxing of new and super cute Nokia 5310, but that is just not possible. Instead, let’s see the unboxing of the original Nokia 5310 XpressMusic thanks to the Nokia Phones Collection YouTube channel. The difference between the original and new Original Series Nokia 5310 is in the loss of the XpressMusic brand, which means that the new phone isn’t bringing all the goodies that XpressMusic was bringing back in the days. The old 5310 was coming with the Nokia Mini Speakers MD-8, but that phone was more expensive too. At the very beginning of the video, you can see how rich the boxes were back in the days when companies weren’t so occupied with the ecological aspect of the box and were just putting stuff in there to bring smiles to the buyers. Just imagine if you would get the speaker, headphones, lots of cables, colorful manuals, etc.
The box isn’t the only difference between the original and the new 5310. There is a lot of hardware differences, even though the two phones do have some common features.
Here is the comparison of the hardware specs between Nokia 5310 XM and Nokia 5310.
||Nokia 5310 XM
||123.7 x 52.4 x 13.1 mm

So, as you can see there is a lot of difference, but until the new Nokia 5310 arrives for a test, let us remember how Nokia used to do things in 2007. Do enjoy the unboxing of the original Nokia 5310 XpressMusic.
