HMD to launch new Nokia feature phone, here are the first official pictures
The new Nokia 3310 has already been released in many markets, but this might not be the only feature phone HMD plans to launch this year. While we know the Finnish company is likely to introduce 6 or 7 new handsets by the end of 2017, we don't know how many smartphones and feature phones are part of HMD's lineup.

Thanks to some pictures that have been recently published by TENAA, the Chinese regulatory commission, we know HMD will be launching another feature phone in the coming months. The phone doesn't have a name yet, and no details about its specs or price are available yet.

The Nokia-branded feature phone goes by model number TA-1017 and, just like the Nokia 3310, it doesn't seem to support 3G connectivity. Perhaps a variation of the handset will add this feature, but that will certainly increase its outright price.

The primary camera on the back lacks the LED flash, which is replaced by a loudspeaker grill. It will most likely run the S30+ UI and might or might not include dual-SIM support. Now let's see when exactly HMD will make it official and how long it will take to for the feature phone to hit the shelves.

Symbian S30! Bringing the nostalgic memories back... Shouldn't be as pricey as the 3310, though.

HMD should use Snapdragon 205 platform to give better connectivity to their feature phone.
