HMD Global has officially launched the next-generation Nokia 3310 in China and it’s only getting better. The phone will be available in the country through China Mobile [which in close partnership with HMD] and will have 4G network support. The smart [or maybe not] featurephone comes with some advanced “features” such as WiFi connectivity and WiFi hotspot.
The Nokia 3310 4G is running on YunOS, Alibaba Group’s OS based on Android Open Source Project (AOSP). YunOS is somehow a mix match of the Firefox OS (web-based OS that features support for HTML5 ecosystem) and Android OS and is available to wide range of smart devices in China.
The phone carries support for single micro-SIM card with 4G VoLTE support. It comes with 2.4″ 240p QVGA TFT LCD display with polarizing film to allow sunlight readability. The Nokia 3310 4G will be available in two configurations, one with 256MB and the other with 512MB of internal storage. There will be microSD slot though, so you better off whichever configuration you choose. The camera will be the same 2-megapixel rear camera with LED flash. Decent but definitely not usable.
Other hardware specifications:
- micro USB port for charging and data transfer
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 3.5mm audio jack
The phone will be supplied with 1200mAh of removable battery that offers 5 hours of talk time on 4G VoLTE and 12 days of standby time.
As for the design, the Nokia 3310 4G will follow the appearance of its predecessors (Nokia 3310 2G, Nokia 3310 3G) although slightly taller and thicker. As of now, there are only two color options: Fresh Blue and Dark Black. But like the previous versions, HMD will release more color choices when it hit stores globally.
The new Nokia 3310 4G will have a special appearance in the upcoming MWC 2018 in Barcelona this February.
