The Nokia 3310 (2017), the feature phone meant to bring nostalgia among the Nokia fans failed was released in many countries starting from April. But the device will not make its way into the markets such as the U.S. as it supports only 2G connectivity.
It looks like there is hope for the Nokia fanboys in such markets where the 2G network has been dismantled to get their hands on the Nokia 3310 (2017) We say so as the HMD CEO Nummela seems to have tipped that they are working on the 3G variant of the Nokia 3310 (2017) in an interview to Finder, an Australian website.
He states that HMD is aware that there is a demand for the Nokia 3310 3G variant and that they are keen to meet the expectations of consumers so that the feature phone is compatible across the global markets.
This hint from the HMD CEO cannot be ignored as it is a kind of confirmation that they are working on the 3G variant of the feature phone.
To refresh on the specs of the Nokia 3310 (2017), the device is fitted with a 2.4-inch QVGA display and is based on the Nokia Series 30+ platform.
