Finally, the Nokia 3310 that we have been waiting for was unveiled at the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona.  The new phone combines the sturdy build quality and a long lasting battery of its original. It introduces some new features and tweaks the design a bit to bring it up to date. Compared to its predecessor, the new model is smaller, lighter and thinner and it is available in dark blue, yellow, red and matte grey colors. The phone features a 2.4-inch QVGA display and comes with a full QWERTY keyboard.

The new Nokia 3310 runs on Symbian 30 Operating system. It comes with 16MB storage plus a MicroSD card slot that supports up to 32GB. It supports GSM900/1800 MHz networks, so you won’t be able to use it with the 3G or 4G networks. There is an FM Radio, media player, 3.5mm audio jack and it is compatible with Bluetooth 3.0. Additionally, it has a Micro-USB charging port instead of the pin charger that was present on the original model.

The phone introduces a color screen to replace the monochrome display that we were accustomed with in the old design. It brings on board a 2MP camera, which has become a necessity in the social-media age. Getting into the cloud is also possible through opera browser but brace yourself for slow speeds of 2.5G. However,It can not get to connect through Wi-Fi. Essentially, the phone does not come to replace your smartphone. It will only act as a backup thanks to its generous battery life suitable for emergencies, festivals and camping. Nokia claims that the phone offers 22 hours of talk time and it last a month when on standby mode.

The most amazing feature that people become nostalgic about is the comeback of the snake game. We hope that it is just as good as we can remember it. The Nokia 3310 shall be available for both single and dual SIM card. HMD Global which licenses the Nokia brand name and creates mobile devices, also unveiled three Android smartphones. With its launch at the Mobile World Congress, all you can do is to wait for its availability in the store near you soon.
