It looks like HMD Global doesn’t want people to forget the Nokia 3310. HMD brought the Nokia 3310 2G with Nokia Series 30+ OS, a 3G version with Java-based Feature OS and Now 4G version with Android-based YunOS. The new Nokia 3310 features the same 2.4-inch QVGA screen, 16MB internal storage, and 1200 mAh battery as of 3G variant. But this time they added interesting features like 4G connectivity and YunOS to make it even more powerful. And yeah don’t worry they haven’t removed the snake game
You may be wondering “Why Nokia is Planning to Launch it in this World of Smartphones” but there are some strong points regarding its launch. You know today’s smartphones battery drains too quickly and it is very tough to make it alive for a day. But with Nokia 3310 we get the talk time of 6.5 hours and 24 days standby. Therefore you can easily make the emergency calls when necessary. It too runs a basic version of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger which is a great upgrade. I don’t think people would buy this phone as their main phone but as a secondary phone, this would be great.
