Nokia 3310 4G vs Reliance JioPhone: The battle of 'smart' feature phones

HMD China's website does not list the price point for the device, but chances are that the company will release an official statement in the near future, along with the phone's release date and its price point, so stay tuned for that.

It's not really clear why Nokia (or rather, HMD Global, which acquired the rights to produce Nokia-branded phones and tablets) chose to start with a 3G version of the 3310; after all, nostalgia for a "simpler" time usually doesn't include achingly slow connectivity.

With MWC 2018 approaching, it is expected that HMD Global will globally launch the device at the event.

The new Nokia 3310 4g comes in two new colors: Fresh Blue and Deep Black. The 3310 4G however switches to YunOS which is designed by tweaking Android OS developed by Chinese shopping giant Alibaba. The device features a 2.4-inch curved window display with 320 x 240 pixels resolution. Furthermore, if that wasn't sufficient, it also supports advanced features, such as, Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Hotspot. The China launch was first reported by Nokia Power User.

As of now, there has been no word on the pricing and availability of the Nokia 3310 4G.

The older versions of the 3310 ran on Java-based Feature OS but the 4G variant will run on YunOS.

Processor & Storage: The smartphone makes use of a Dual Core, 1.5 GHz 256 MB RAM and 512 MB Storage default memory capacity. There's also a microSD card slot that supports up to 64GB of expanded storage and the same 2-megapixel camera on the back. That said, the phone is also packing an LED flash to accompany the rear camera. The latest version supports 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and Wi-Fi Hotspot functionality.

Battery life is still one of the biggest positives, with Nokia claiming that it'll go on for 12 days of standby time, 15 hours of talk time on 2G, and 5 hours of talk time on VoLTE.
