After a month of hypes and rumors, Nokia 3310 is finally back in new-look-but-old-feeling type. The whole internet can’t help themselves to enchant the Nokia 3310’s comeback with the Nokia 3310 New (reboot) 2017.

The legendary phone, Nokia 3310 was announced on Sunday, Feb 26 at MWC 2017 in a launch event organized by HMD Global. Brad Rodrigues, Interim President of Nokia Technologies, during the keynote on Sunday said that the “return of the Nokia 3310 has us smiling too.”

The original version Nokia 3310 was launched in 2000 and the reboot Nokia 3310 new has launched in 2017. The difference that 17 years has made might seem huge in terms of technology advancement and achievements but the love and loyalty towards the Nokia and Nokia 3310 is just same-old unshaken.nokia 3310 vs nokia 3310 new


 

This iconic Nokia 3310 new is a tribute to the true Nokia fans that stayed loyal even in the ups and downs of the company. The Nokia 3310 new is back in all new avatar; the colorful body (though the Old and new both have curves), with camera and the flash, with a headphone jack (yes, it’s true), with colorful display, with Micro-USB port and yes with the little tweaked-updated same old Snake game.

Considering the price, Nokia 3310 new is only available for just USD 52 which is 40% lesser than the original Nokia 3310 which was available for 129 USD.Let’s take a look to Head-to-head Comparison between Nokia 3310 (2000) and Nokia 3310 new (2017) and do some Nokia 3310 Vs Nokia 3310 new (2017)
