The Nokia 3310 can now accept two SIMs instead of one, and a 2-megapixel camera is thrown in for good measure, as is Bluetooth. On the software front, Opera browser is now included by default, but there are no other apps, so if you want to use Facebook, you are limited to the mobile Web. Of course a modern take on the classic game Snake is very much there, but like almost everything else about the Nokia 3310 (2017), it bears very little resemblance to the original.

So will the Nokia 3310 find any takers? Based on the largely positive and enthusiastic reactions online it seems HMD Global has a hit on its hands. How many of these people actually go ahead and spend 49 Euros (approximately Rs. 3,500) remains to be seen. People who actually buy feature phones because they can’t afford a smartphone usually spend around Rs. 800 to Rs. 1200 price bracket, so the Nokia 3310 is unlikely to appeal to these users. Nostalgia alone will have power this phone through the market.

While HMD Global might be a new company, it’s clear that it knows how to market a product. If the Nokia 3310 (2017) had released under any other name, it would’ve been a non-event. Instead, it looks like a pretty standard – and frankly, over-priced – feature phone will turn out to be the biggest highlight of MWC 2017. Nokia is back alright.
