Looks like Nokia licensee HMD Global is all set to extend the Nokia 3310 family by launching a 4G variant. Even though there is no official confirmation about the same, it is reported that the Nokia 3310 4G variant has surfaced on Chinese website TENAA, having a model number TA-1077. The company had launched the Nokia 3310 2G variant at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in the month of February this year and later launched its 3G variant in the month of September. The handset originally came with a price tag of Rs 3,310.
According to the TENAA listing, the Nokia 3310 4G variant will support networks like TC-LTE, TD-SCDM and GSM. The phone is spotted with Alibaba’s YunOS OS which is a custom version of Android. Previously, the Nokia 2210 2G variant was launched with Nokia Series 30+ OS while the 3G variant was launched with the Java-based Feature OS. It is still unknown whether the new 4G variant will be a part of the new platform. However, there are no further specifications listed about the Nokia 3310 4G variant on TENAA.
It is expected that the Nokia 3310 4G will also sport a 2.4 inch QVGA colour display with 240×320 pixels resolution just like the original version. The phone is expected to feature a 2 mega pixel rear camera with LED flash, 64GB onboard storage and a 1200mAh removable battery. The phone will most likely come with dual-SIM support to allow the users to use two networks. It is likely to feature Bluetooth v2.1 and Micro-USB like the 2G and 3G variants.
Notably, HMD Global is most likely going to hold an event in China on January 19 where it will launch the Nokia 9 smartphone as its new flagship along with the Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 8 (2018) variant. This is when the company will mostly launch the Nokia 3310 4G variant. If not in January then the Nokia phone may be launched at the MWC 2018. One will have to wait and see what the Finnish company has planned up for the launch of the feature phone.
