HMD Global brings the Nokia 6310 back for its 20th anniversary
HMD Global has re-released the Nokia 6310, a smartphone that originally launched 20 years ago. Unsurprisingly, the new model contains a few upgrades on its classic sibling. However, it also looks nothing like it and bears a closer resemblance to the revised Nokia 3310.
Supposedly, the Nokia 6310 retains 'iconic silhouette of the original', despite being 6.5 mm taller, 9 mm wider, and 6.9 mm thinner than its predecessor. HMD Global has replaced the original's tiny display with a 2.8-inch one too, which runs at 320 x 240 pixels (QVGA). Additionally, the device has 8 MB of expandable storage, 16 MB of RAM and a 1,150 mAh battery.
The Unisoc 6531F-powered handset also has a 3.5 mm jack, a Micro USB port and an FM radio. Furthermore, HMD Global has included two SIM card slots and a 0.3 MP rear-facing camera complemented by a small torch. The Nokia 6310 runs the ageing Series 30+ OS, which debuted in 2013, and comes with Snake pre-installed.
HDM Global's marketing assets imply that the Nokia 6310 will be available in black, green and yellow. Currently, the device is only purchasable in black or yellow though, both retailing for £59.99.
