Nokia 3310 reboot will be a mashup between the old 3310 and the new 150
Nostalgic Nokia fans are eager to find whatever information they can about the Nokia 3310 reboot, but information has been scarce until now. Many expect Nokia to provide more details during Mobile World Congress 2017, only a few days away. Until then, we have only rumors to go on. The latest information says that the Nokia 3310 will have an almost identical design to the old one but with a larger, colored display.
According to information sourced by Evan Blass, the Nokia 3310 will run Nokia’s feature phone OS, Series 30+. This platform was created by MediaTek for Nokia and first appeared in the Nokia 108 in 2013. Since then the Nokia brand was acquired by Microsoft and licensed out to HMD Global, who used Series 30+ in the Nokia 150 that came out only a couple months ago in December 2016.
The leaks also mentioned that the Nokia 3310 will come in multiple colors and allow users to swap out faceplates, a trend that was all the rage back in the early days. Design-wise, the device was described as looking like a hybrid o the original Nokia 3310 and the new 150. This may indicate that the main similarity with the 150 is the use of the same 2.4” 320x240-pixel LCD with the original shell of the 3310.
