“The mother of all phones is back.” -Nokia
In their Twitter account, Nokia, the highest grossing mobile brand in 2000s, announces on Friday the near worldwide launch of its newly revamped 3310 mobile unit.
The announcement was made implicitly through a 25-second video along with the caption “your 17 year wait is over, now shipping.”
Netizens showed their anticipation and excitement on the announcement while some became confused by Nokia’s “now shipping.”
To end this arising confusion, Nokia says they aim to start worldwide launch during the quarter of 2017, from April to June.
Early this year, Nokia made a statement that they will make a comeback after its long absence in the market.
The wait is over, and in no time, Nokia 3310 units are out again in retail shops!
What to Expect: Features of Nokia 3310 (2017)
The revamped version retains most features that the old version is known for.
Who would not remember how rigid this mobile unit is? The old 3310 weighs 133 grams while the new one weighs about 79.6 grams. Almost a half difference can be observed, but it is likely more convenient for this generation as consumers prefer gadgets that weigh less.
Meanwhile, its appearance is pretty much the same as the old one, but of course, it was slightly changed to look modernized and to fit our current society.
The LCD display of the new version also offers more ease on the user. The plain-looking display turns into a colored one with a wider ratio.
With the new Nokia 3310, one could capture any moments because of an additional feature on the unit: 2 megapixel rear camera.
The last but not the least is the unit’s battery life. Do you remember when your phone’s power lasts for days? This is the most prominent feature of 3310 that the new version retains. In fact, its battery life is longer than its forerunner. It could last for 22 hour talk time or 31 days if left unused.
