HMD Global Launches Wi-Fi And 4G-Enabled Version Of The Nokia Oyj (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) 3310

HMD Global has revealed the latest version of the famous Nokia Oyj (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) 3310 handset and it features Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity.

HMD Global which sells Nokia-branded devices unveiled the new Nokia 3310 in its home market in China where it will be sold through China Mobile. It will also be sold in the Indian market through a partnership with Reliance Jio. As far as the specs are concerned, the new 3310 model is not packing much heat underneath. It will feature the YunOS which cannot run Android apps. The latest reveals claim that it will be Wi-Fi enabled and that it will also be capable of 4G connectivity.

The new Nokia 3310 4G will run all the functions through a RAM capacity of 256MB which is barely enough to handle more than a couple of apps on a regular smartphone. The internal storage is also nothing to write home about with a mere 512MB although the storage is expandable up to 64GB. Connectivity includes 4G 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. It also features a micro USB port and 3.5mm audio jack.

Other features include a 1200mAh battery which the company claims can achieve 15 hours of talk time on 2G and  12 days of standby although the talk time is drastically reduced to 5 hours when using VoLTE. It is also capable of playing FM radio for 31 hours.  It has a camera features a 2mp shooter with flash. As far as the design is concerned, the new Nokia 3310 4G is vastly similar to the previous model which was launched last year.

Meanwhile, HMD Global also announced that it has rolled out 8.0 Oreo through an update for its Nokia 6 smartphone. It had previously announced the update for its Nokia 7 handset. The OS update is quite hefty at 1,659MB and it features various advantages. These include better low-light performance for the camera, better UI settings and enhanced power saving among other features. It will also allow users to experience a host of other new features that Android 8.0 has to offer.
