Last year at Mobile World Congress, HMD Global announced the re-imagined version of the Nokia 3310 and followed it up with a 3G version of the device few months later. Now, the company has taken yet another step in making the device relevant in today's world by adding 4G and WiFi connectivity options.
The Nokia 3310 4G was recently certified in China and the device runs on YunOS, which is a lightweight fork of the Android Open Source Project from the Alibaba Group. While the support for traditional Android apps is unknown, the rest of the OS certainly has some smart features such as tethering over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and streaming from cloud platforms available in China.
On the hardware side, the device still features the same 2.4-inch screen with 240x320 (QVGA) resolution, 256MB of RAM, 512MB of storage expandable up to 64GB with a microSD card, a 2-megapixel camera with LED flash and 1200mAh battery.
The phone is said to go on sale in China towards the end of February, but the pricing is not yet known. The availability of the phone outside the country is also a mystery for now, but there are rumors that Jio is looking to tap HMD Global to bring the device to India.
