01 February 2018, 12:52 | Sam Montgomery

Nokia 3310 4G quietly launched in China, expected to go global in March


The latest Nokia 3310 comes with 4G VoLTE support and also WLAN hotspot. The handset support 4G TD-LTE (TDD B38 / 41, 39, 40) connectivity in addition to 2G and 3G. While it looks the same as the first revamped Nokia 3310, the company has replaced the previous Java-based operating system in favor of YunOS which is a forked version of Android developed by Alibaba. There are no details on the type of apps it will support but the product page did mention pre-loaded apps that can provide you with music, books and audiobooks. HMD Global has announced the 4G LTE version of the Nokia 3310 and here are the things that you will be able to experience with this particular variant. The 4G-enabled Nokia 3310 also comes with Bluetooth 4.0, while the device weighs 88.1 grams. One is Fresh Blue and the other one Deep Black. Like the Nokia 3310 (2017), the 4G variant may arrive in more color options in the near future.

Specifications wise, the Nokia 3310 4G variant offers a 2.4-inch display with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. This is a huge upgrade from the 2G model as it had only 16MB of internal storage. It also supports up to 64 GB microSD card on its external storage slot. The only real condition is the use of LTE in the new Nokia 3310 is the reception of the signal for further distribution to the mobile Internet by Wi-Fi, but in Russian Federation, the operators of this service costs money if you don't know how to get around this prohibition (on the Internet there are instructions). It is fueled by a 1,200mAh battery that offers 5 hours of talk time on 4G VoLTE and 12 days of standby time on 4G VoLTE.

That said, users shouldn't expect any big apps to appear in the Nokia 3310 4G. HMD Global has partnered with China Mobile for 4G service in China. The Nokia 3310 4G variant was been launched in China yesterday. 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 US and Europe. In countries like India where the 3G variant was not made available. HMD Global may give out additional information on pricing and availability during MWC 2018 in Barcelona next month.
