- Nokia 3310 Reborn: New Information Surfaces
The Internet went berserk when Nokia announced it’ll be bringing back the legendary phone, Nokia 3310. The remake of the legendary phone shook the whole tech community as the smartphone manufacturer who had earlier hinted that it will be bringing the N-series back looks to be going back into its books for more design from the older devices released when the world hadn’t been exposed to the possibilities as found in the modern day smartphone.
Nokia 3310 know for its design and strength was something to look forward to as the smartphone maker had promised a better battery on something that had arguably the best battery on mobile phones in the planet. The thought of re-branding the device sent chills down the spine of tech enthusiasts who began scheming the possible specs which may be added onto the device seeing as Nokia just made its first kingly entrance into the Android world.
The company however looks to be keeping things simple on the device as contrary to earlier speculations that the device may come back into the market running on an Android OS, most likely the latest Android N 7.0, the Nokia 3310 is making a debut not as a smartphone but as a redefined and redesigned version of the older one which has a longer lasting battery.
According to the tech company, the new battery fitted on the rebranded device could last an entire week, and also, the design which is based on the earlier version of the Nokia 3310 will draw a little inspiration from the Nokia 150 device.
Information available regarding the rebranded Nokia 3310 reveals that the device which is known for its strong build will be running on the Nokia Series 30+ operating system. The latest edition of the operating system is expected to be loaded on the device which will come with the ability to swap faceplates. This brings about an added customizable feature to the device. The swappable faceplates will allow the device maintain a fresh and different look and most importantly provide a distinguishing feature for each Nokia 3310 rebranded.
On the functionality front, the Nokia 3310 will be more than limited and maybe a little disappointing in the tasks it can accomplish asides for calls and SMS. Information reveals that the device which will most likely come into the market with basic controls will support its version of the instant messaging app, WhatsApp.
The device overall which provides a great and handy communications device serving as only a secondary phone will come into the market with a battery size that can last a whole week on a single charge. It also comes in a sturdy and top quality design available at an affordable pricing in the market.
Nokia which has promised to bring back the N-series line of smartphones is expected to make major announcements at the Mobile World Congress holding in Barcelona where it is most likely that the company will unveil the Nokia 8 devices and the Nokia P1.
According to the lineup for the year, Nokia is expected to roll out a total of 7 different smartphones this year, the start of which was witnessed with the introduction of the Nokia 6 smartphone at the CES 2017 tech event which held in January.
The major fear, however, remains the availability of the devices from Nokia as the Smartphone company’s partner, HDM Global announced that the Nokia 6 smartphone which sold out in its first minute of sale on Chinese e-commerce website, JD.com was restricted mainly to the Chinese market.
