HMD Global has released the revamped version of its iconic Nokia 3310 feature phone at the MWC 2017 event.

However, an Indian retailer website has surprised the folks with its Nokia 3310 (2017) listing which is now available at a price of Rs 3,899.
A Nokia 3310 (2017) model has been spotted online on OnlyMobiles, which is an Indian retailer. The phone is priced at Rs3,899 and the listing mentioned ‘Coming Soon’ on top which suggests that the upcoming mobile will arrive India sooner than the expectations. Besides this, the site has listed the specifications and available colour options of the device. The phone will be offered in Warm Red, Grey, Yellow, and Dark Blue colour options.
Citing the sources, Gadgets360 has reported that HMD Global has not officially in a discussion with OnlyMobile and the listing on retailer’s site is unofficial. So, the users are advised to take the OnlyMobile retailer listing with a pinch of salt. On the other hand, HMD Global has not revealed the price and availability of the Nokia 3310 (2017) feature phone. The handset is expected to be launched in Q2 of this year.
The new Nokia 3310 (2017) features round edges and refreshed design. It comes with a sturdy build which is iconic to the original device. The reason for the new curved screen window is to get better readability in sunlight. The handset has push buttons and a new user interface.
For photography, the Nokia mobile has a 2MP primary rear camera. There is a 3.5mm audio jack present on the device. The other specifications include a 2.4-inch QVGA display, Nokia Series 30+ OS, and 2G connectivity. It has internal storage of 16MB and has support for memory expansion via microSD card up to 32GB. The device receives its juice from a 1200mAh battery which is claimed to deliver a talk time of 22 hours and up to 31 days of standby time.
Nokia 3310 (2017) is a feature phone and it is expected to be priced around Rs 3,500. Spending that much for a feature phone seems to be stupidity, but there are some people who still prefer feature phones over the smartphones. It is a personal choice and preference.
