HMD just revived the legendary Nokia 3310 in the MWC 2017
HMD just revived the legendary Nokia 3310 in the MWC 2017. Immortal, indestructible and nuclear bomb proof(!) Nokia 3310 , which has a cult following all over the world, was a hit back in the days. Nokia sold 126 million units in total. So, everyone who have seen the development of phones remember the ever so durable 3310. The nostalgia is immense in both young and old.
Now nokia is trying to cash in on all the nostalgia. The phone is supposed to be priced €59(Taka 6000~), where you can get a basic droid with its MRP.
The re-imagined 3310 will have broadly the same design but will be slimmer and lighter. The new version is 12.8mm thick and weighs 79.6g, as opposed to 22mm and 133g to the old Nokia 3310. The new Nokia 3310 will come in different colors. It gets a camera , and a 240*340 pixel 2.4 inch color screen. However, the 3310 will remain a feature phone as Nokia Series 30+ os has been used. The users will be able to surf the web via the Opera Mini browser through 2.5G connectivity.
Most important of all you’ll get one month stand by time with 22hour talk-time. It also has the ever so lively Snake( Yes! The legendary game we all grew up playing) and Nokia ringtone.
HMD knows it won’t be able to beat all the iPhones or Droids with this little baby but the higher ups in the company know that Nokia 3310 reminds us of Nokia back in the days: The king of the mobile world.
