A modernized version of Nokia 3310 has been launched in China. This new device will be called the Nokia 3310 4G. The previous variant of this phone Nokia 3310 2G was launched in India in May last year. The new phone will be able to function on 4G bandwidth which is a major update when compared to the previous version. This device is expected to be unveiled to the rest of the world during the Mobile World Congress 2018 and it has been launched only in China now. Pricing of the device will also be known during the mega event.
The Nokia 3310 4G comes in two new colors: Fresh Blue and Deep Black. Apart from the fundamental change in connectivity, the device will come with mild updates to its operating system and storage. Unlike the Nokia 3310 2G that runs Nokia Series 30+ OS and its 3G variant that was debuted on Java-based Feature OS, the 4G variant comes with YunOS, which is a forked Android version built by Alibaba.
The YunOS-based Nokia 3310 4G features a 2.4-inch QVGA (240×320 pixels) color display. The device gets a bump in storage. Compared to 16MB storage available on its original 2G version, it will now amount to 512MB of internal storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 64GB) and 256MB of RAM.
According to Nokia Power User, the device will have VoLTE support which has grown to be essential in phones sold in India. The phone sports a 2-megapixel camera sensor on the back with an LED flash.
The device features a 1200mAH battery, which the company claims will give a standby time of 12days on 4G. With 2G, the device’s battery standby time will increase to 15 days. Further, it can deliver up to five hours of talk time on a 4G VoLTE network and 16 hours of music playback on a single charge.
The Nokia 3310 4G also comes with basic connectivity options like Bluetooth 4.0., Micro USB port, WLAN 802.11 b/g/n and even FM radio. The device keeps the 3.5mm headphone jack and features an Mp3 player as well.
