On Sunday, February 26, the iconic Nokia 3310 was launched at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 event in Barcelona. The 2017 Nokia 3310 is complete with a color screen, Internet access as well as Bluetooth feature. HMD Global, which owns the rights to the Nokia brand, launched the Nokia 3310, calling it to be a handset device with "modern twist" to the beloved feature of the 2000s.
The 2017 Nokia 3310 vs 2000 Nokia 3310
HMD Global, a well-known Finnish company, made a big way for the release of the most iconic Nokia 3310. According to Telegraph, the 2017 Nokia 3310 is very recognizable to the previous iconic mobile device owners but is slightly thinner and more features were added. The recently released mobile has a colored screen as opposed to the original's monochrome. And unlike the old phone, the 2017 version of the Nokia 3310 is said to last a month long because of its high-quality battery.
The mobile has a battery life of one month long, or approximately 30 days in all. It is based on the continued usage of basic internet access through the 2.5G connection and missing modern smartphone standards such as Facebook and WhatsApp. However, as reported, the new Nokia 3310 does have several mod cons that were not ready at the time of the original.
That is the headphone jack as well as the SD card slot for additional storage for music and photos, FM radio and a two-megapixel camera. The legendary Snake game has been retained, although a different twist on the rules from what original 3310 users might recognize. "For the Nokia 3310, we just couldn’t resist. We wanted to reward loyal Nokia phone fans and make a statement that rich heritage, innovation, and modern design can go hand-in- hand," HMD's chief product officer Juho Sarvikas said.
2017 Nokia 3310's Battery Can Lasts A Month
According to Gadgets360, the new Nokia 3310 sports a 2.4-inch QVGA color display, which has 240x320 pixel compared to the 48x84 pixel resolution of the old version. The mobile device runs on Nokia Series 30+ OS (operating system) and has a storage of 16MB. It supports expandable storage up to 32GB microSDcard. Also, a 2-megapixel camera with LED flash is located at the back and the new Nokia 3310 packs a removable of 1200mAh that offer 22-hour talk-time and a straight month-long standby time. That’s 10 times better than the 2000 Nokia 3310, which typically lasted for just more than two hours of talk-time.
In a stand-by mode only, the battery of the 2017 Nokia 3310 will keep running for up to a month between charges, which HMD Global says it is three times as good as the battery of the original handset. Also, as reported, it'll power through up to 51 hours of MP3 playback and 39 hours of FM radio playback. The battery is also removable, as the 2000 version of the 3310’s battery was, but the new model is rechargeable via a microUSB port. HMD Global says that the new version of the Nokia 3310 “will retail at an average global retail price” of €49 or $50 and will be soon available to purchase in the second quarter of this year.
