Do you remember Nokia 3310? That old , rugged phone that rocked our world back in the year 2000?
NOKIA 3310 IS BACK!!
Nokia has unveiled a refreshed version of the renowned Nokia 3310 with some improved features & hardware. The new Nokia 3310 (2017) comes with a simple design and a near indestructible shell ; similar to the one that was launched in 2000.
Here are the new features of Nokia 3310 (2017) :
1. It has a colour display :
The 3310 features a 2.4 inch QVGA display with a pixel density of 120 ppi. Although the screen is not as impressive as modern day smartphones , the 3310’s polarized and curved screen window makes for better readability in sunlight.
2. It has a camera :
Although not impressive , the 3310 has a 2MP back camera for taking “Simple Snaps”. The camera has an LED flash which helps when taking shots in a dark environment. Tragically for social media enthusiasts there is no front camera for selfies on the new phone
3. It DOES NOT run Android OS :
Contrary to what we all expected , the 3310 DOES NOT run Android operating system. Instead , it runs Nokia’s Series 30+ software which is designed for feature phones. The user interface has been revamped to give a cleaner & modern look.
4. The battery can last for 1 month :
The Nokia 3310 has a
Yuge HUGE battery life of 31days on standby and a whooping 22hours talk time.
5. It can access the internet :
Yes , the 3310 can access the internet but you’ld need to have a lot of patience because it uses a 2.5G connection which is very slow compared to 3.5G and 4G LTE internet.
6. Internal & External storage is available :
The 3310 has a storage capacity of just 16MB (laughs). However , there is an external SD card slot of up to 32GB for those who need more storage (Who wouldn’t? :D)
7. It has Snake Game :
The renowned Snake game is available on the 3310 , albeit a modern version which looks different from the one you know.
8. Goodbye to “Pin mouth charger” :
The new 3310 has a Micro-USB charging port which is different form the “Pin Mouth” charging port that was used in the year 2000.
