Months back when it was announced by HMD Global that it would bring back the iconic Nokia 3310
at MWC 2017, the excitement and anticipation for the feature phone was quite high.
The rebrand Nokia 3310 priced at EUR 49 (roughly Rs. 3,500) did not fail to impress, bringing back a ton of fun (adding Snakes and the Nokia ringtone) with modern day aesthetics.

The Nokia 3310 (2017) sports a refreshed design, keeping the rounded edges and sturdy build iconic to the original 3310. The new curved screen window is designed for better "readability in sunlight." The phone also sports new push buttons and a new UI with similarities to the original. The new colours also add some vibrancy to the Nokia 3310 with Red, Yellow, Blue and Grey colours as options.
The 2-megapixel rear camera on the Nokia 3310 (2017) and a 3.5mm audio jack are some of the biggest updates to the handset. Other Nokia 3310 specifications include a 2.4-inch QVGA display, 2G connectivity, and Nokia Series 30+ OS.
