HMD Global-backed Nokia decided to revive its classic 3310 feature phone last year at the MWC event. The company is back with a new variant in the same category. According to a report published by Gadgets 360, the company has apparently launched the 4G variant of Nokia 3310 feature phone in the Chinese market. The handset was first spotted on the official TENAA website a couple of weeks back.
The feature phone is also available on Nokia’s official website for purchase. The Finnish technology giant has apparently partnered with China Mobile to make the new model available in the country. Additional details regarding the feature phone, such as its price and availability information, will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event scheduled to take place next month at Spain, Barcelona.
The 4G variant of the feature phone has been introduced in two color options, i.e. Fresh Blue and Deep Black. The handset is made available as a form of upgrade to last year’s 3310 feature phone. “Unlike the Nokia 3310 2G that runs Nokia Series 30+ OS and its 3G variant that was debuted on Java-based Feature OS, the 4G variant comes with YunOS, which is a forked Android version built by China’s Alibaba. The phone also comes with a preloaded MP3 player,” notes Gadgets 360.
As far as its specifications are concerned, the Nokia 3310 (4G variant) sports a 2.4-inch QVGA color display with 240 x 320 pixels resolution. The handset offers 256MB of RAM along with 512MB of in-built memory. This storage option is further expandable via the use of microSD card-slot option.
On the camera front, the feature phone sports a 2-megapixel camera sensor with support for LED flash. The handset is home to a 1,200mAh battery that can deliver up to 5 hours of talk time on 4G VoLTE network and 16 hours of playback music on single charge. Connectivity wise, the handset has 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, Micro-USB, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
