European carrier confirms 3G Nokia 3310 arrives in late September or early October


There have been a couple of reports claiming HMD plans to launch a 3G version of the Nokia 3310, the feature phone that made its debut at MWC 2017 early this year, but nothing official transpired until recently.

It appears that an Irish carrier has just confirmed that it will offer the 3G Nokia 3310 starting later this year. The feature phone should be available at Three Ireland in late September or early October, but info about its price tag has yet to emerge.

Last month, a 3G version of the Nokia 3310 (model number TA-1036) was spotted at FCC (Federal Communications Commission), which suggests the feature phone could be released in the United States as well.

The current variant of Nokia 3310 does not support 3G, one of the main reasons many customers did not purchase the dumb phone. While some would think that HMD should have launched the device with 3G support in the first place, that would have increased its price for sure.
