The Finnish HMD Global has announced a variant of the 3310 with 4G in China. The phone has a lot more storage than last year’s 2g and 3g version. In addition, it contains YunOS, an operating system from Alibaba Cloud, based on the Android Open Source Project.
The 4g version is slightly larger than the 2g and 3g version. Instead of 115.6x51x12.8mm, the 4g version is 117×52.2×13.35mm. The screen is the same with 2.4″ and a resolution of 320×240 pixels and the battery with a capacity of 1200mAh is also unchanged. The storage is now 512MB instead of the meager 16MB.
The 4g variant runs on YunOS, a fork of Alibaba Cloud’s Android Open Source Project. Phones with this operating system run many applications online and store a lot of data on web storage so that users can synchronize it on various devices.
The 3g version of the Nokia 3310 runs Feature OS and the 2g variant includes s30+. The 3310 4G only supports td-lte bands for China. This includes a band that is also used in the Benelux for busy places: the 2600MHz band.
It is not inconceivable that HMD will later also bring a 4g version of the 3310 to Europe. It previously released various models first in China. HMD is reportedly holding an event to showcase new phones next month at the Mobile World Congress telecom fair in Barcelona, though that press conference has not yet been announced. HMD has not yet announced a suggested retail price for the new device. The new 3310 is expected to be released next month.
