Difference between old Nokia 3310 and new Nokia 3310; all that you should know
Here’s everything you need to know about the new Nokia 3310
Finally, the curtains over the revamped Nokia 3310 were removed, as it was officially launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain on February 26.
The Nokia 3310 has more or less kept the shape of the original Nokia model but given it the features you need in 2017. The new Nokia 3310 features a 2.4 inch touchscreen QVGA resolution display, which is polarised and curved for better sunlight legibility and comes with a resolution of 240 pixels by 320 pixels. The dimensions of the phone are 115.6 x 51 x 12.8 mm, which makes it much sleeker than the original phone, which measured 113 mm x 48 mm x 22 mm.
It also offers you four colours to choose from: Warm Red and Yellow, both with a gloss finish, and Dark Blue and Grey both with a matte finish. The custom UI adds a fresh look to the Nokia 3310.
The new Nokia 3310 is also offering an internal storage of 16MB that can be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card. The Nokia 3310 has a removable 1,200mAh battery that can last for 31 days on standby and offer 22 hours of talk time. The device is rechargeable via a microUSB port.
On the camera front, it has a 2MP camera with LED flash on the rear for basic photography. It has a 3.5mm audio connector slot and you get a headphone jack for listening to music or FM radio. It can power through up to 51 hours of MP3 playback too, as well as up to 39 hours of FM radio playback.
The Nokia 3310 will be available in single SIM as well as dual SIM variants. The Nokia 3310 supports slow 2G networks and the band supports are GSM 900/1800 MHz. It runs the Nokia Series 30+ OS, which is the OS providing support to the new range of Nokia-branded phones. The phone has Micro USB (2.0) for connectivity as well as Bluetooth 3.0 with SLAM.
Last but not the least, the Nokia 3310 comes with a new version of the iconic ‘Snake’ game tailored for the colour screen. However, the users won’t be able to load apps separately. The device also supports web-browsing via the Opera browser, which is pre-loaded on the feature phone.
The Nokia 3310 is expected to be available in second quarter of this year globally for a price of 49 Euros ($51/ £41/INR 3,450).
