3rd iteration of 2nd gen Nokia 3310 to launch with 4G LTE capability

Nokia 3310 is one of the feature phones that is very difficult to get due to the demand it has in this era of smartphones. The smartphone is presently available in two models. One supports a single SIM with 2G only and the second one supports two sim cards of 3G and 2G network capability. The recent model comes with 4G, 3G and 2G network support with a single SIM card slot or a dual SIM card slot depending on the region.

The phone was spotted on TENAA with the model number TA-1077 with the following tech specifications. The 2G only model was based on Nokia Series 30+ OS, and the 3G model was based on Java-powered feature OS and now the 4G model runs on a new operating system named Yus OS which should offer plenty of features over the other two variants.

Externally, the phone looks identical to that of the original 2nd generation 2G iteration of the smartphone with a 2.4-inch color non-touch enabled display with 2.5D tempered glass protection on the top. The rear-facing camera with 2 MP resolution gets a new LED flash for the low light photography. Standard features like Bluetooth, 3.5 mm headphone jack, analog FM radio and a micro SD card slot is also present on the phone.

The one improvement over the 2G and 3G model is the battery. the Nokia 3310 4G comes with a slightly bigger 1200 mAh Li-ion user replaceable battery with normal charging capability via micro USB port at the top of the smartphone. As the certification has been completed, the phone is expected to go official on the CES 2018 along with the other 2018 edition of Android-based Nokia smartphones.

Coming to the pricing, considering this as a 4G enabled phone, the phone maker is likely to price it around $80, which roughly translates to ₹5,000. So, can this phone become a threat to the 1500 JioPhone? Share your view in the comment box regarding the same.
