Nokia has officially announced their classic phone Nokia 3310 as it was reported by the previous rumors. This iconic phone was introduced on MWC 2017 together with 3 other Nokia smartphones: Nokia 3, 5, and 6.
Those 3 Nokia Android phones come with large touch screens. The 2017 version of Nokia 3310 keeps the physical button as its characteristic.
The original Nokia 3310 was released in 2000 and it had a small dimension (113 x 48 x 22 mm) and 133 g of weight. Thus, we could use it with one hand and carry it in our jeans pocket. When it comes to its appearance, this phone is one of the most simple ones.
However, the new look of 3310 comes with a sophisticated touch in polychrome display and 4 color options. There are glossy warm red and yellow, also matte dark blue and grey. It also comes with a bigger screen. The design is more compact than its original version. In 76.9 g of weight, the phone have almost the same dimension as the 2000 version (115.6 x 51 x 12.8 mm).
Another thing that is new on 2017 version is the camera. Nokia 3310 was a basic phone. The company decided to add this feature to the reborn version. It comes with the 2 MP rear camera.
Even The Snake Gets A Make Over
In 2000s, there were only a few game options we could play on our mobile phone. Those games weren’t as sophisticated as they are today, but some of them were quite addictive. Nokia’s Snake is one of them. Previously, the Snake lived in a monochrome display. Now, it looks prettier in polychrome and with modern design. However, I loved the monochrome as it was simpler.
Why do you need to have the 2017 version of Nokia 3310?
Today’s smartphones are awesome with useful features, gorgeous designs, more games and apps option. But, those amazing things have to be paid by battery drain. I suggest new Nokia 3310 as a must have phone. First of all because of its battery life.
The new looks of Nokia 3310 can last up to one month standby time or up to 22 hours of talk time. You can use it as the second phone, just in case you are in the emergency situation and your smartphone is out of power.
It has an MP3 features which can playback your favorite songs up to 51 hours. You can also play Radio for 39 hours. And let’s not forget to play Snake.
Perhaps you will not be interested in its 2 MP camera as your smartphone can do better. However, it may be handy in certain situations, especially when your smartphone’s battery is empty.
Regarding the price, I think it’s a bit too expensive for a basic phone. For all the spec, you can get Nokia 3310 with its new look for $52.
