Nokia 3310 4G

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

It is now available in China but global availability and other details will probably be announced in the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in February.

The phone's now available in China, where it runs YunOS, a forked version of Android. The new variant is listed on the company's official website with no information regarding the availability and pricing.

Pricing and global release dates have not been announced at this stage but expect to hear more at the end of February from MWC 2018.

Nokia 3310 4G comes in Deep Black and Fresh Blue colors. The phone runs YunOS, an Android-based operating system designed by China's Alibaba. It features a 2.4-inch display that supports a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. The phone also comes with a preloaded MP3 player.

A 4G model of the Nokia 3310 makes a complete sense if you are living in India.

Now only being offered in China for a February release, the 4G LTE-enabled Nokia 3310 is an unusual version of the re-imagined classic phone as it runs YunOS.

The revamped Nokia 3310 was first launched a year ago, the company only made a 2G variant available initially.

The JioPhone, on the other hand, is powered by a dual-core SoC, paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB internal storage, which is expandable using a microSD card.

The Nokia 3310 4G has a 2-megapixel rear camera along with an LED flash.

Featuring the same design as the previous Nokia 3310 refresh that was announced past year, the latest iteration of the iconic smartphone will now allow you to experience more than just ample "screen on" time and standby battery life.

On the connectivity front, the Nokia 3310 4G variant comes with 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a micro USB port, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

Perhaps we'll hear more about the 3310 4G at next month's Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show, where - in addition to 3310 news - we were promised to see something "awesome".
