Nokia brought back its 3310 feature phone that was popular in the previous decade for its durability at the MWC 2017 event earlier in the year, and now a variant of the device with 3G network capabilities has been announced. The Nokia 3310 3G was unveiled by HMD Global, the company with the license to manufacture smartphones with the Nokia branding on them.
The Nokia 3310 3G is similar to the standard variant with just 2G, but some changes have been made to its design and software to complement its advanced network capabilities and justify its higher price tag.
