As famous in the former TENAA record, the Nokia 3310 4G is powered by means of YunOS, indicating a much wider array of app improve. 4G VoLTE has additionally been showed (by way of Fone Arena).
There’s no phrase on pricing at time of writing or any trace of a much wider liberate time table. It’s value preserving your eyes peeled right through HMD Global’s exhibit at MWC 2018 for the latter, because the Finnish company might be having a look to the old-fashioned tool to snatch some consideration a yr on from the telephone’s preliminary revival.
Original tale (12/28/2017): Smartphones could be all of the rage, however characteristic telephones deserve some love too. Nokia made some of the absolute best characteristic telephones of all time with the Nokia 3310. HMD Global revived the tool after it all started generating Nokia telephones and later got here out with a 3G model. The first model may attach to an overly restricted selection of bands, however the 3G model introduced a lot better connectivity.
Now, HMD is again with some other model of the Nokia 3310, and this time it’s packing 4G. Nokiamob noticed the tool passing via TENAA, the Chinese regulatory frame for telecommunication units. Luckily for enthusiasts of the tool, it seems the similar as ever.
One of the one adjustments is the working gadget. VTechgrapgy issues out that the 3310 4G will run YunOS as a substitute of Feature OS or s30+, which have been the 2 working programs powering the 2G and 3G variations, respectively. YunOS is ready to run some apps that we see on Android, because it’s in response to AOSP. That leaves us questioning if we’ll see some stripped down variations of apps like WhatsApp make its approach onto the 3310 4G.
We know this isn’t going to be the most well liked telephone available in the market, nevertheless it could be a a laugh tool to select up for nostalgia’s sake and to use as a backup. Now that it may well attach to 4G, there’s no threat of it being left in the mud as carriers will sooner or later shutter 3G networks in the longer term.
We’re nonetheless looking forward to pricing main points for the Nokia 3310. The 3G model of the telephone introduced at $60, so we’d be expecting this one to come with a small build up. If it’s the rest beneath $100, you’ll see me on the head of the road.
