It looks like HMD Global might be preparing to launch a 3G variant of the popular Nokia 3310
in the USA. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently certified a new Nokia handset.
There are some big similarities between the device that cleared the FCC and the existing 2017 iteration of the iconic feature phone. The two are equal in size and carry a similar model number - the new version is designated as TA-1036, while the 2G variant is identified as TA-1030.
The certification also details all of the supported 2G and 3G bands in the US:
- GSM850: 824.2 MHz ~ 848.8 MHz
- GSM1900: 1850.2 MHz ~ 1909.8 MHz
- WCDMA Band II: 1852.4 MHz ~ 1907.6 MHz
- WCDMA Band V: 826.4 MHz ~ 846.6 MHz
As for a possible announcement date, it is likely that the 3G 3310
could break cover alongside the Nokia 8
on August 16.
