Here is what features the new Nokia 3310 (2017 edition) will have


The legend, the indestructible, the one and only Nokia 3310 will be most certainly be resurrected in just a matter of days. The new Nokia - a brand owned by company HMD Global that has some top Nokia executives at the helm, but production in China - is expected to unveil a new edition of probably the most iconic feature phone of all times.

And if you hoped that the new Nokia 3310 will be a smartphone with a fancy camera and features... well, forget about it. New information about the 2017 return of the Nokia 3310 is coming from Evan Blass (@evleaks), one of the most prolific leaksters with an excellent track record.

The new Nokia 3310 (2017 edition, or whatever it is called) will be a back to the roots device running on the good old Series 30 interface, according to @evleaks. It will have a color screen, though, unlike its glorious monochrome predecessor unveiled 17 years ago.

The second-coming of the Nokia 3310 will also come in a choice of different colors for the body and you will be able to swap the faceplates.

To better imagine it, Evan Blass suggests we imagine a mashup of the original Nokia 3310 with the new Nokia 150, unveiled at the end of last year.

Unlike most modern phones, the big advantage of the new Nokia 3310 will certainly be a battery life measuring in days rather than hours. We are yet to hear about any special durability features of the new phone that would perpetuate the myth of the 'indestructible' 3310 phone.

$15 for - almost rugged phone - extraordinary long battery life - great antenna reception and it will be great as secondary/emergency phone.. (MicroSD slot, 3.5mm jack, FM radio, flashlight also welcomed)

So it won't run android? Why?

Because it won't be suitable to run Android, and it should run Nokia's very own OS.

Why it should run Android? The battery life would be abysmal

Does anyone understand those who rant why this phone won't have any modern smartphone features? You don't spoil the Legend.
