A recent report revealed that HMD Global plans to announce a Nokia 3310 reboot at this year’s Mobile World Congress, alongside three new smartphones. The report did not include any specific details regarding the “modern” 3310, except that it will be an affordable feature phone. However, a new leak today sheds some more light on the much-awaited reboot.
Confirming the previous report, the leak does reaffirm that the Nokia 3310 will remain a feature phone and will NOT be running on Android. In terms of the design, the feature phone is expected to be more or less identical to the original model, except for being much slimmer as well as lighter. HMD Global will also be offering a wider choice of colors this time. In addition to the original colors that the Nokia 3310 came in, the new model will also be available in colors such as Red, Green, and Yellow.
Perhaps the biggest upgrade will be the display. While the Nokia 3310 featured a 84 x 84 monochrome display, the newer model will sport a slightly higher resolution color display.
The Nokia 3310 reboot will be announced this Sunday at HMD Global’s Mobile World Congress 2017 press conference in Barcelona. At the event, the company will also announce the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 smartphones running on the Android operating system.
