Fans of the 2G-only reimagined Nokia 3310 will be delighted to know that Nokia has announced a new 3G variant of the device. Based on the original Nokia 3310 design from 2000, the new device also comes in a dual-SIM 3G variant.

HMD has launched the Nokia 3310 3G. It follows in the footsteps of its popular 2G-only model of the reborn Nokia 3310 launched earlier this year for developing markets. The new 3G variant will now be available globally bringing with it its retro-futuristic stylings and some new color options.

Based on the classic Nokia 3310 released in 2000 (which ultimately racked up over 126 million sales), the re-imagined variant still incorporates the original device’s signature Snake game that helped to make that device a smash hit. Joining the original Yellow and Warm Red colors, are a new Azure and Charcoal colors.

Each Nokia 3310 3G comes with a matte finish and new silver keypads. The keypad has also been tweaked with more spacing to make typing a more comfortable experience. Its removable 1200 mAh battery will provide users up to 6.5 hours talk time and up to 27 days standby time. Tech specs include:

  • 2 MP camera with LED flash for simple snaps
  • Headphone jack for your tunes
  • 2.4” QVGA display with curved window with polarized layer for better readability in sunlight
  • Available as both single SIM and dual SIM variants
  • 2 MP camera with LED flash
  • Headphone jack
  • All-new customisable retro UI
  • Bluetooth 2.1 for pairing with speakers and other phones
  • FM radio and MP3 player for music
  • 64 MB storage plus a MicroSD card slot with support for up to 32 GB

The Nokia 3310 3G feature phone will start its global rollout from mid-October and will retail from €69.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
