Nokia 3310 gets major revamp with 4G data speeds but it’s not all good news

Nokia’s was the surprise hit of 2017.

This rebooted feature phone brought a swathe of upgrades to the original and hugely popular classic, including a colour display, new design and a camera.

There was, however, one thing that it lacked and that was the inclusion of super-fast 4G data speeds.

HMD Global did resolve this problem late last year with the launch of a 3G model but now things are now getting even better with a 4G model being made available.

The 4G data signal is over twice as fast as the older 3G signal, allowing movie downloads, web pages and photos to viewed in a much quicker time

Adding this latest mobile technology not only means the 3310 will now be faster when accessing online content but also means it can be used a Wi-Fi hotspot.

It’s also thought this new device will run on Android-based operating system which could mean users will get access to apps such as Facebook and WhatsApp.

This is all good news for fans of the 3310 but all of this speedy technology does come at a price.

Last year’s 3310 boasted a massive battery life with almost a month on standby and 15-hours talk time.

Sadly, the 4G model appears to see its battery life considerably reduced with an expected usage time of just five hours.

There’s also another problem for the 3310 as this new model is currently only available in China.

Luckily, there could be a European announcement coming soon with HMD Global set to reveal a host of new devices at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month.

Although not confirmed, its thought the new phones could include the new 3310 along with the new Nokia 9.

This flagship is rumoured to include a edge-to-edge display, powerful Snapdragon 835 processor and dual-lens rear camera. will be in Barcelona and will bring you all the news live as it happens from MWC 2018.
