  • Nokia 3310 4G specifications

HDM Global launched the Nokia 3310 4G edition in China on Tuesday, but there was no word on the phone's worldwide availability.

The Nokia 3310 4G carries support for single micro-SIM card. The revived Nokia 3310 2G and Nokia 3310 3G models that were launched past year run on Nokia's S30+ operating system, and it was very limited in terms of functionality.

Connectivity wise, it supports 3G in TD-SCDMA B34/39 as well as 4G TD-LTE in B38/41,39,40. There's a 3.5mm headphone jack, FM Radio, and MP3 Player preinstalled on the phone. On top of that, the Nokia 3310 4G even lets you turn the device into a WiFi hotspot.

Reports have suggested that Nokia could build on the successes of past year and not just announce a flagship in the form of Nokia 9, but cut across budget segments and unveil the Nokia 1 - expected to be its cheapest Android smartphone yet. This had been a fear among potential users' of not picking up the Nokia 3310, which was a 2G only device and without Wi-Fi support.

The JioPhone, on the other hand, is "effectively" priced zero.


HMD Global might change plans and consider launching the phone in India, where 4G penetration has shattered records - thanks to Reliance Jio. Running KaiOS, the feature phone provides unlimited access to movies, music, Live TV and more. The handset is going to be sold in the country in early February and it is possible that users will be able to buy the smartphone outside of China, such as the USA and Europe.

In terms of color options, the 4G variant of the feature phone comes in two colors such as Dark Black and Fresh Blue.

In addition to making calls over LTE, you will also be able to make the Nokia 3310 a portable Wi-Fi hotspot when LTE is active.

Being a feature phone, the device is equipped with a 2MP rear camera. It also runs YunOS, which is a forked but incompatible version of the open-source Android platform.

The Nokia 3310 4G, which was earlier expected to be unveiled at MWC, was launched in China today (January 30). Later, it was speculated that the company might also bring a 4G variant.
