Nokia first launched the legendary 3310 handset back in 2000. Since then, it remained to be the most reliable phone ever made in terms of build quality.
The build quality of the phone is so superior that people even qualified it as the most indestructible phone. Moreover, it went on to become one of the most popular devices of all time, with more than 130 million sales.
Can you believe it? 130 million sales!
In the Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, Nokia, now helmed by HMD Global launched the revamped version of Nokia 3310.
In this article, we are going to have a look at the spec sheet of the device.

I have divided this article into two different parts, according to what has changed and what hasn’t.
So without further ado, let’s begin.
What hasn’t changed?
A few things haven’t changed on Nokia 3310.
The first one is the battery life. The old Nokia 3310 has a standby time of a couple of weeks whereas the new one is knocking the socks of all the records with an insane standby time of a full month. Yeah, you read it right.
You can play the snake game on the new Nokia 3310 as well. Though the name remains the same, the game isn’t.

The build quality is also good. You get a rock solid device. Still, not up the build quality of the old one!
What has changed?
A lot of things have changed.
The visible one is the design. You will get phones of awesome design profile. The handset is available in different colors.
You get a color display with a resolution of 240 x320 pixels. The pixel density is 167 PPI. The TFT screen will surely entice you up.
Unlike the older variant, the new one is lightweight and you get a flashlight as well. There are both single and dual SIM models are available.
A 2 MP camera is available to take a snap if you need. But don’t compare the quality with flagship cameras.
We all know the internal memory of 16 MB isn’t enough. So Nokia has provided us with a slot to pop in an SD card. You can expand the storage up to 32 GB.
In order to make you entertained, they have given the MP3 capabilities to the device. A 3.5 mm headphone jack is present on it.
The charging is not via the conventional charging port. You have to use a regular micro USB charging cable for that.
There is an FM radio facility. Still, you will not get high-end internet facility. Still, a 2G option is available.

When will the Handset Hit the Market?
The company hasn’t announced a fixed date for the launch of Nokia 3310 2017. Nonetheless, we expect it to hit the market before the first quarter ends.
