Blast from the past as the Nokia 3310 hits our shelves again

The benchmarked smartphone, presumably Nokia 2, carries the codemame "Unknown Heart" and appears to be running on Android 7.1.1. The next two releases from the company are expected to be that of the budget Nokia 2 and the flagship Nokia 8 smartphone.

The Nokia 3310 was launched by HMD Global as a tribute to the iconic model. While the rejuvenated version is unlikely to achieve sales anywhere near that, there will likely be plenty of punters ready to go retro and shell out for the handset, which comes courtesy of Finnish firm HMD Global.

There is no launch date set for Nokia 2, however, the company is planning to introduce the Nokia 8 on August 16. The Finnish company has so far released three smartphones: Nokia 6, 5 and 3.

Previous reports suggest that this Nokia Android flagship features a 13-megapixel dual camera with Carl Zeiss optics branding and HMD Global had itself confirmed the same. According to the recent leaked price of Nokia 8 also leaked and it was with a price tag of Euro 589 (approximately Rs.43,400).


According to Baidu, the Nokia 2 could ship with a 5-inch HD display alongside on-screen buttons. It would be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.

Look familiar? After 17 years since it first launched the Nokia 3310 has returned with a few extra bells and whistles. When it comes to the rear side, the rumored Nokia gadget will have a camera sensor and LED flash with rounded corners. In terms of color, recently, the Copper Gold color variant of the alleged Nokia 8 was leaked in pictures.

Nokia has decided to remake the handsets again, and it is thought they will be considered as a "second" phone to bring along to festivals and concerts.
