The Nokia 3310 smartphone became somewhat of an iconic phone after it’s release years ago. May 24th, 2017 is the target date for the release of the much anticipated new version of the Nokia 3310. This smartphone is expected to sell for much less than the original, with a base cost of well under $100.
Carphone Warehouse is on record as saying that demand for the retro Nokia 3310 smartphone has been “astonishing”, and that record numbers have already signed up to purchase the new Nokia 3310. The old version was well known for 2 things, the very long battery life, and the iconic “Snake” game ! It looks like the new version of the Nokia 3310 smartphone will still have Snake on it, but in an updated version of course after all this time. The battery life is slated to be roughly 24 hours for talk time and about 20-30 days of standby time.
The new version of this smartphone will come with Bluetooth connectivity, a 2MP camera, text messaging capabilities, a 1.5 inch color screen, 2.5G network. It will have 4 color options – Warm Red, Yellow, Dark Blue and Grey. This smartphone will not be high-resolution, and generally speaking will not have close the capability of the modern smartphones we are all used to.
This smartphone is built by the Finnish company HMD Global, and we expect to see the buttons remaining in the same positions as with the original model, but probably slightly smaller. Some of the features which made the Nokia 3310 smartphone so popular were Snake II, Pairs II, a clock, calculator and the option to store your reminders.
The smartphone is 4.55 x 2.01 x 0.50 inches in size and the main body is plastic. The resolution is 240 x 320 pixels. The camera is 2 MP LED. The built-in storage is 0.016 GB and storage expansion includes a microSD, microSDHC up to 32 GB. This should be a fun smartphone to own and bring back a lot of great memories from the past.
