Seventeen years after it was originally launched, the iconic Nokia 3310 is making a comeback to the Indian market in a new avatar.

HMD Global, a Finish manufacturer with the exclusive rights to market the Nokia brand, is releasing the Nokia 3310 in India on May 18 at a "recommended best buy price" of Rs 3310.

The revamped version of the phone was officially announced at the Mobile World Conference (MWC) held at Barcelona in late February.

To recall, the new 3310 qualifies as a “feature phone”. Unlike the smartphone which is capable of providing 3G/4G connectivity, Nokia 3310 relies on 2.5G connectivity and runs on S30+ operating system, which allows web browsing in its 2.4-inch display screen.

The new Nokia 3310 sports a 2MP rear camera and offers a MicrosSD card support of up to 32GB. In terms of connectivity, the feature phone has a micro USB, 3.5mm AV connector and supports 3.0 Bluetooth.

The phone also comes pre-installed with a new the modern version of the classic “Snake” game.

HMD claims the coloured-screen phone has month long stand-by and can deliver 22 hours of talk-time, ten times more than the original. It is available in four colour variants—Warm Red, Yellow, both with a gloss finish, and matte finished Dark Blue and Grey.

"Talk all day on a single charge, send texts, take pictures and enjoy a pocket jukebox with a built-in FM Radio and MP3 player. Our reinvention of this classic design is sure to make you smile. It's got everything you remember, but with a modern twist. So whether you're after a feature phone that offers amazing battery life in a head turning design or a companion phone, the Nokia 3310 won't let you down," said Ajey Mehta, VP (India), HMD Global.
