Nokia 3310 Gets a 3G Upgrade

O2 United Kingdom has just emailed me to say it will be stocking the Nokia 3310 3G in-store and online in the coming weeks.

HMD Global backed Nokia 3310 was highly accepted all over the world.

The Nokia 3310 was reintroduced to the world at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona generating enviable amounts of nostalgic TV and press coverage.

Should you buy Nokia 3310 3G? HMD without a doubt did an excellent job by launching a modern version of the Nokia 3310, but the handset has been criticised for lacking 3G connectivity.

With its 3G launch, Nokia is set to compete with the Reliance JioPhone and Airtel and Vodafone's upcoming feature phones.

Compared to smartphones, a feature phone like the Nokia 3310 is very reliable because of the vast battery life they provide. This meant that with some countries already in the process of switching off their 2G networks - including the U.S. - the usable life of the device might be short. Last week, HMD Global's Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, had teased an Android Oreo update for the Nokia 8.

The V2.1 is Nokia 3310 is being marketed in the Australia for the price tag of 69 Euros or INR 5,300 only. The feature phone is rated to deliver up to 27 days of standby time and 6.5 hours of talk time. The firm has not yet revealed the India price and availability for the 3G variant. Nokia has introduced the all-new Retro UI that will let you customize the interface. The company has announced that Nokia's iconic 3310 mobile phone will feature 3G connectivity and will be rolling out to global markets soon. The handset is available in both single and dual SIM models.

Now there is a new Nokia 3310 3G on offer with two new color variants.

The new Nokia 3310 features a massive 1200mAh battery. You will be able to choose from "the ever popular Yellow and Warm Red, and handsome new Azure and Charcoal hues", and all of which are matte finishes with silver keypads.

In a dose of pure Nokia nostalgia, the Nokia 3310 also comes with a refreshed version of the Snake game.
