The new Nokia phones: Nokia 3310 (2017), and Android-powered Nokia 6, 5, and 3 overview
At MWC 2017, we saw the Nokia 6, a mid-range Android phone previously announced in China, go global, and two new affordable phones to go with it: the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3.
But it was not smartphones that were the highlight of Nokia's presentation: it was an unpretentious call back from the past. It was the Nokia 3310, reimagined and refreshed. The indestructible phone, the subject of memes and legends, has gotten a visual overhaul, has the Snake game, a month of stand-by time, and... is not a smartphone. Yes, it all sounds nostalgic (we feel you), but those keys are surprisingly disappointing to type on. If you can deal with it, this is a perfect 'mobile phone rehab' phone.
New Nokia 3310
The new Nokia 3310 looks a lot like its grandfather and sports a similar egg-shaped design with an almost identical keypad below the screen. It also offers nothing in the way of Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS, apps, or any other "smart" features that we've become used to in the past decade or so. It has a 2MP camera on the back though!
