New Nokia 3310 Leak: Swappable Faceplates And Series 30+ Interface

Yesteryear mobile king, Nokia is once again in the news on the internet and social media. We had recently reported that the Finnish company is planning to re-launch a ‘modern version’ of the legendary and unbreakable Nokia 3310 in the upcoming MWC 2017 in Barcelona. This device will cost $62 and compete directly with the increasing number of low-end Android smartphones.

Now, fresh leaks have surfaced giving a hint at the specifications of the Nokia 3310. According to Chinese site Vtech, the new Nokia 3310 will feature a colour screen, rather than the monochrome 84 x 84 display like in the old model. This device will be a feature phone that will run on Series 30+ UI (user interface), which is the OS providing support to the new range of Nokia-branded phones and not Android OS.

On the design fronts, Nokia 3310 is a fusion of the old 3310 and the new 150. It will have the ability to swap faceplates as you like, which will keep the feature phone fresh and vibrant looking at all times. While Nokia 3310 may not be a smartphone, this feature phone is designed with a battery that could last an entire week. It will be slimmer and lighter than the original.

HMD Global intends to bring more color variants to the modern Nokia 3310, such as red, green and yellow in addition to the standard color options available for the initial model, which were grey, black, blue and ash.

Other than the modern Nokia 3310, the Finnish company is expected to launch two budget Nokia devices – Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 on February 26. There are chances that the company likely to announce the global availability of the Nokia 6 smartphone.
