HMD Global has announced that the updated Nokia 3310 will go on sale in the UK from May 24.
It will be available from a number of retailers and networks, including Carphone Warehouse and Vodafone, priced at £49. Four colours will be offered at launch: red and yellow (gloss finish); as well as blue and grey (matte finish). The Nokia 3310 is one of the best-selling mobiles ever made, shipping more than 120 million units worldwide since its debut in 2000.
The new 3310, which was unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February, boasts 22 hours of talk-time and month-long standby. It has a 2.4-inch QVGA (240 x 240) colour screen with QWERTY keypad, two megapixel camera with LED flash and microSD card support of up to 32GB. The device runs on Nokia Series 30+, which is a newer platform created by MediaTek. It retains the original look of the Nokia UI. This updated handset is a far cry from the original, which had a 80 x 80 monochrome screen and very basic java operating system.
For fans of snake, it’s also worth noting that the new Nokia 3310 will ship with an updated version. I don’t know about you, but that’s the biggest piece of news. We’ve lost many hours of our life playing that game and it’s good to see HMD paying homage to the iconic mobile game.
