As expected, Nokia has officially made its return to classic smartphones with a sort of review of the mythical Nokia 3310, this time, with the new owner of Nokia and Chinese manufacturer HDM Global. In this way, the Nokia 3310, one of the most robust and well-known mobile phones of the Finnish manufacturer’s glorious past, returns to the market again to try to recover some of that lost glory and put HDM Global at the center of public opinion. Something that Android smartphones, tablets, OZO camera didn’t know how to do.
As a remake, more tribute than cutting edge, the new Nokia 3310 that has just been presented by HDM Global in the Mobile World Congress 2017. Although as we all expected, does so outside the splendor that Nokia had at some time in the past. Since for what it promises, on paper, the new Nokia 3310 is more a way to make noise than to compete with the rest of models of the market outside the mid-low range. Since what was avant-garde in the past, is far from what the average consumer seeks in these times.
A generic low-end phone with the name of the classic Nokia 3310. Be that as it may, the new Nokia 3310 offers us a low-end phone with a classic keyboard with 2.4-inch QVGA display, 2-megapixel camera, and even a microSD slot, but with very limited functions for a market that, of course, is not the target of other phones of the company.
Unlike the robustness of the classic model, the modern variant is a little smaller, thinner, lighter, much like any generic low-end smartphone.
As we see in the image that illustrates these lines, the terminal is no more than any generic phone of the Finnish company with the name of the classic Nokia 3310. But of course, it is far from being what the general public expected, however much we were talking about the low range.
The new Nokia 3310 will hit the market for just over $50 over the second quarter, promising a 25-day standby battery, basic internet browsing with Opera mini and a 22-hour talk time.
Looks good, doesn’t it?
