Word has it that the Nokia 3310 4G will have its global debut at the upcoming MWC 2018. Unfortunately, for many, the remastered version of the classic handset had one big issue: a missing 4G LTE connectivity.

Back in September 2017, HMD Global launched the 3G variant of the revived Nokia 3310.

The new Nokia 3310 4G is available now in China packing two colour options of Fresh Blue and Deep Black. The local iteration runs on YunOS, a forked version of Android made by the folks at Alibaba. The company has not yet revealed any details about it India launch, but when it will come to India it will compete against the 4G VoLTE feature phone from Reliance Jio. In case of the Nokia 3310 4G, support for Wi-Fi hotspot is also present, something that is absent from the JioPhone. There is a possibility that the company will launch a dual SIM variant of the Nokia 3310 4G as well.

With its unique design, and hopefully the inclusion of applications like WhatsApp and Facebook because of its move to the Android-based YunOs, the 4G ready 3310, if priced right, could serve as a brilliant alternative to the existing ultra-affordable 4G feature phones available in the smartphone market.

Thursday Night Football to Move to Fox Next Season
Presented by Bud Light, Thursday Night Football is a top-five show in all of television and the No. 2 show in primetime. According to Darren Rovell of ESPN , the deal is pegged at an average of more than $660 million per year.


It is available as an upgrade to the modernised Nokia 3310 that was launched in a 2G variant in India May previous year. The rear facing camera gets an LED flash. The phone has 256 or 512 MB of internal memory and a microSD slot under the card to 64 GB. It comes packed with a 1200mAh battery that is claimed to last up to five hours of talk-time on a 4G VoLTE network, and up to 16 hours of music playback on a single charge.

This Nokia 3310 4G variant will surely launch in India, but the launch date is unknown at the moment.

Perhaps we'll hear more about the 3310 4G at next month's Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show, where - in addition to 3310 news - we were promised to see something "awesome". There's Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB, and a 3.5mm headphone jack as well.
