One of the highlight of MWC 2017 was the announcement of the revamped Nokia 3310 by HMD Global, and the comeback of the popular model was a bang throughout last year even till date. Just few days back, the Nokia 3310 4G version was officially launched in China after receiving TENAA certification. The earlier version that was launched last year was actually a 2G model.
The company licensing the Nokia brand, HMD Global, has silently listed the Nokia 3310 4G on the official site and has partnered with China Mobile to bring the new model to the country.
Nokia 3310 4G Features
The Nokia 3310 4G is an upgrade to the revamped Nokia 3310 that was launched in 2G version in India last year.
Unlike the Nokia 3310 2G version that runs Nokia Series 30+ OS and its 3G variant that was debuted on Java-based Feature OS, the Nokia 3310 4G variant comes with YunOS. This OS is a forked Android version that was built by China’s Alibaba. The new phone also came with a preloaded MP3 player.
The YunOS-based Nokia 3310 4G features a 2.4 inch QVGA colour display having a 240 x 320 pixel resolution. Unlike the 2G version that has a 16MB storage, the new 4G Nokia 3310 variant came with a 256MB RAM and 512MB of internal storage that is expandable up to 64GB via microSD card.
The new Nokia 3310 4G version has a 2MP camera on its rear with an LED flash. It also came with a 1200mAh battery that is rated to deliver up to 5 hours of talk time on a 4G VoLTE network and 16 hours of music playback on a single charge.
