Nokia 3310 is Back: Now With a Camera And Colored Screen

The original Nokia 3310 was perhaps one of the most iconic phone of all time – and rightfully so.

It was sturdy, long-lasting and an overall perfect phones for the masses. Its ruggedness was very well known. It was so popular that more than 126 million models were churned out.

Today, Nokia has re-imagined the 3310 for 2017 and have launched it at the Mobile World Congress, with some great updates for the modern age.

Nokia finally took the covers off of the 3310 today in Barcelona Spain. The re-imagined 3310 comes in new bright colors.

 

Since the original 3310 was a feature phone, the new 3310 carries on the legacy and still maintains the same form factor. However, unlike the original 3310, with the new one you get Nokia’s Series 30+ software, a 2.4-inch QVGA display, 2-megapixel camera and a microSD card slot.

As compared to our modern smartphones, the specs available on the Nokia 3310 are very modest but that itself is the beauty of a feature smartphone. The thing is that the new 3310 isn’t targeted towards people looking for a flagship smartphone.

Compared with its 2000 model, the upgraded version of the 3310 is also smaller, thinner and lighter too. As mentioned before, the colors available are very lively too such as red, bright yellow, dark blue etc. However, due to its shape and form factor, you’ll be instantly able to recognize it as a Nokia phone. It’s also pretty light weight, coming in at just 79.6g.

As for the phone’s running time, you get 1,200 mAh of battery which is close to the capacity that is available in most entry-level smartphones. With a battery of this size, Nokia is claiming that the Nokia 3310 will be able to stay alive for 31 days of standby. You’ll also be able to get through 51 hours of MP3 playback, 39 hours of FM radio playback and 22 hours of talk time.

The battery is also removable and can be charged via a microUSB port. Oh and, let’s not forget that it also features a 3.5mm headphone jack, a feature that isn’t available on some $700+ flagship smartphones nowadays.

To top off the whole experience, the new 3310 will also be coming with a updated version of the iconic game, Snake. The game can also be accessed on Facebook Messenger under the games tab.

Priced at 49 euros, the rebooted Nokia 3310 comes in around 5,500 PKR.

    And it looks nothing like the original. They’re just cashing in on the legacy. Can’t wait for people to put its ruggedness to the test, and call Chinese Nokia out when it doesn’t turn out to be indescribable.

    • Hassam Tahir

      ammm what else were they going to with the 3310>

  • Rìzvan Bukharì

    I would buy one

  • Jibran Raja

    price is too high…may not get the half of the response which it received before…

    • Hasnain

      Not even quarter it… I bet

  • Ali

    Camera and colored look is minus point I want that old Nokia feel.This is not good. This is already a flop.

    • Muhammad Kamran

      You want old nokia feel. but think about the world what they want?

      • Abdul Qadir Malik

        hes part of this world!

  • Tanveer Arshad

    can this also be used in desi fights,

  • Amanullah Rana

    Crap, in this money one would rather grab a entry level smartphone of 512MB RAM, 8GB ROM, 3.5~4″ display with Android 4+ OS or even a Microsoft Windows 8 phone, Nokia RIP

    • Alamgir

      it is specifically made not to have all those features above. SukoonDotCom. it will sell crazy. a large number of people are tired of the smart phones. i would definitely be buying this one.

    • Kashif Surhio

      The main feature in my opinion will be the battery life, if this new arrival fits to have a battery life that lasts for minimum 3 days with standard use then people will go for it because an entry level android battery will last for 8-12 hours max with same standard use of functionality.
      Another thing that may effect can be the network carrier, like it is GSM is 3G. In many countries that have 4G as primary network, GSM network is available at all places/locations so it may be a negative point.

      • Asim

        Lumia phones do have battery backup of 2 to 3 days on normal usage

        • Kashif Surhio

          Lumia is now no more Nokia brand, its of Microsoft
          in addition it is windows phone whereas this version of 3310 is Symbian (Nokia’s own operating system)
          so overall there are many critical differences that are good to be noticed.

    • FuriousNinja

      Lumias are crap in this price range as we all android models. And this phone is for those people who don’t prefer all the gimmicks of a modern cellphone.

  • Muhammad Farooqi

    kia is say mein dewaar mein keel thonk sakta hooon?

  • It isnt impressive at all. If Nokia wants to earn something from it they will be dissapointed.

    • sallu

  • Muhammad Sharif Cheema

  • Sarmad Hassan

Hahah…touch system has overtaken this old style… But but but….one who are self structured n not impresed by others will defenetly buy it…price is so so…n camera must be 5 MP…but ecomists are much smarter…it will get fame but will not run long enough and there will be NO CHANCE IN FutUre for another Back RETURN???

  • Syed Talha Shamim

    It is cheap in price.However unlike the fact , China smartphone are also coming with same price and little more advance feature. Perhaps, this type of flagship will fail.

    • FuriousNinja
