The new Nokia 3310 (2017) feature phone was much awaited by the mobile phone lovers across the world, and here it is. The device got launched at the MWC 2017 event with three other devices which are rather the Android smartphones from Nokia. It is true that this new feature phone from Nokia under HMD Global has nothing significant to give you. But being a feature phone this device the best one and yes Iconic too.
The mobile phone made its presence felt at the Mobile World Congress 2017 event in Barcelona. This phone is the 2017 variant with some advancements that you will like to have in it. And guess what will be the sales number if without such advancements back then the old school Nokia 3310 got more than 126 million units sold across the world.
And here we are with the 9 Killer Iconic Nokia 3310 (2017) features that make this device entirely different from the old Nokia 3310.
Enhanced New Colored Display
When the old school Nokia 3310 was introduced to the mobile phone market, it was featuring the 5 lines monochrome display. When it was launched 17 years back, then the device had the dimensions of 113 x 48 x 22 mm whereas this new Iconic 2017 variant has the 115.6 x 51 x 12.8 mm of dimensions. This clearly tells that the new Nokia 3310 (2017) is somewhat large, wide, and thin from the old one. Also, this new 2017 variant of Iconic Nokia feature phone sports the 2.4 – inch of the display with the 167 ppi of the pixels density that gives the 320 x 240 pixels of the colored display resolutions to it. There is the presence of a polarized layer that gives you the best readability in the sunlight.
17 years back when the first ever Nokia 3310 was launched it hardly stores the 8 dialed, 8 received, and 8 missed calls only. There was a little space too for a few text messages in it. But now in 2017 when this device is revamped, then, it is embedded with the 16 MB of the internal in – built memory. But the better part is the presence of the dedicated microSD card slot in this device that can be used for the further expansion of the memory up to 32 GB.
Listen to Song or FM Radio
In the past, the old variant of this device had no place for any of the Jack as there is hardly any space for the calls and messages, so music play was not the necessity in those days. But with the new Nokia 3310 (2017), this is possible to hear the songs in this Iconic device as there is a 3.5mm Headphone Jack provided to listen to the song or the FM Radio. So you can use the expandable memory to store your favorite playlist and can enjoy them using the 3.5mm headphone jack for a long time with a great battery life.
Upgraded Battery Life
In the old school device, there was a mere 900 mAh of the removable battery which gives a maximum back – up of 260 hours on the stand – by and 4 hours 30 minutes of talk time. Whereas the new Nokia 3310 (2017) mobile phone is packed with the removable Li – Ion 1200 mAh battery and it can keep the device alive for 744 hours on the stand – by, 22 hours of talk time, and 51 hours of music play. So just charge it once and forget about the dying of battery for almost 2 or 3 days even on music play or rough 1 whole day on talk time.
Data Transfer and Dual Sim Support
It was a hard thing to transfer data from one mobile phone to other 17 years back. And now we can hardly imagine the phone without a Bluetooth or even any other medium of transferring data (if not Bluetooth). So this new variant of Nokia 3310 is provided by the Bluetooth v3.0 connectivity that will help you to transfer files quickly from or to your device. Back then in 2000, there was hardly any mobile with the dual – sim support, but you can get it in the refurbished Iconic Nokia 3310 phone with dual stand – by feature.
In 2000, it was pretty hard to even imagine the mobile phone with a camera in it. Back then, it was a challenge to the mobile engineers to place the camera on the cell phone. But this new Nokia 3310 (2017) mobile phone is employed with the 2 MP of the shooter rear primary camera with a single LED Flashlight. The camera quality of the device is exquisite as compared to any 2 MP camera.
New Colorful Snake Game
Snake game was the favorite game 17 years back when Nokia 3310 was launched in 2000. And Nokia under HMD Global retained the old game but with the new colorful design and new touch. It was the only game 17 years back that one can play untiredly for quite an extended period.
The pin charger for the new Nokia 3310 (2017) is not there. Instead of that, there is a USB port that works as the MicroUSB charger and also as the microUSB cable port for transferring the data from or to the phone. So this new feature will also help you to not look out for a new charger everytime you want to charge your phone as you are surrounded by the microUSB chargers these days for every mobile phone.
Design, Slim, Light Weight, and Different Colors
The major and one of the best changes to this new Nokia 3310 (2017) is that it has the dimensions of 115.6 x 51 x 12.8 mm which make it more light weight from the old 2000 model. The new push buttons are there with the round corners which are inherited from the old school mobile of the year 2000. Apart from this the old Nokia 3310 was available in only one color option whereas the new variant is available in four different color options namely Glossy Warm Red, Matte Dark Blue, Glossy Yellow, and Matte Grey.
