The popular Nokia 3310 is getting a 2017 refresh complete with 16 MB of internal storage space and a 2.4-inch screen. HMB Global is sticking to its promise of an April-May launch window for users in Europe, though prices will differ between regions.

The classic Nokia 3310 candy bar phone is making a comeback and some sellers are already taking orders for the device with official sales set to start next week. According to at least one Austrian retailer, the Nokia 3310 will launch with only 2G compatibilities and an integrated FM radio for 59 Euros instead of the initial suggested retail price of 49 Euros. Gizbot.com says that the slightly higher price in some European countries will be due to different tax rates between regions.

The 2017 Nokia 3310 features a 2.4-inch QVGA color display, a 2 MP rear camera with 16 MB of internal storage, MicroSD reader, replaceable 1200 mAh battery, and a special Series 30+ operating system. Four initial color options will be made available and the manufacturer is promising a standby time of up to a whole month.

The Nokia 3310 was announced earlier this year at MWC 2017 alongside the higher-end Nokia 5, Nokia 6, and Nokia 9 Android smartphones. Interestingly, a Swedish retailer is listing the Nokia 3310 with 3G capabilities, but HMD Global has yet to officially announce any such variants.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
