The Nokia 3310 that HMD Global revived last year is set to keep up with changing times. The dependable feature phone got a facelift with a new display, a camera and punchy new colours. Later, a 3G version of the phone was launched and now, HMD is coming back with a new variant of the Nokia 3310 (review), this time with 4G.
Per a report by Nokiamob, the device is passing through TENAA, the Chinese regulatory body for telecom devices. Based on the report, the design will remain unchanged.
However, there could be a change in the operating system. The new Nokia 3310 will run on YunOS instead of the previous Feature OS and s30+ which powered the original 2G variant and 3G variant respectively. YunOS is capable of running a few apps that are there on Android as it’s based on AOSP, the open source Android version.
Perhaps, the upcoming Nokia 3310 will be able to run a stripped down version of WhatsApp and Facebook. Considering it can support a 4G connection, it seems highly likely.
While the Nokia 3310 was certainly not the most popular phone this year, it did receive a lot of love when it launched in February. People picked the Nokia 3310 up for the nostalgia factor and also to use as a backup device. The 1200mAh battery on the Nokia 3310 gives a talk time of 22 hours currently. It remains to be seen whether a 4G connection will affect the battery life.
