The new Nokia 3310 lasts for a month on standby


The reintroduction of the Nokia 3310 has had everyone talking for the last couple of weeks. It originally launched in 2000 and was known for its battery life and durability. Unfortunately, the Nokia brand has gone downhill in recent years, with labels like BlackBerry, Apple and Samsung joining the smartphone world.

Nokia has thrown in the towel when it comes to making smartphones, but that doesn’t mean that it’s the end of the line. HMD Global and Foxconn have taken on the roll by acquiring the Nokia license, but they have to adhere to strict rules to keep Nokia’s brand promises.

HMD Global shared more about the much anticipated Nokia 3310. The phones are colourful, bulky, rounded and compact, much like you’d expect from a phone manufactured so many years ago. The phone runs on the Nokia Series 30+ operating system and has a 2.4 inch QVGA display. It is equipped with a 1,200mAh removable battery that will last a month on standby and 22.1 hours on continues calls.

It has a MicroSD card slot that supports an SD card up to 32GB and features Bluetooth connectivity and SLAM. Other features include an FM radio and MP3 player apps. The 2 megapixel rear camera is practically useless, unless you like the low quality look.

The Nokia 3310 has no smartphone capabilities and can only call and text. It would be perfect for anyone wishing to get away from social media or work emails during home hours, or if you’d like to relive your glory days of playing Snake. Device colors include black, red, yellow and grey.
