Published on December 31, 2017

This year was filled with surprises as far as the technology market is concerned. The legacy began when HMD Global-backed Nokia decided to revive its classic Nokia 3310 feature phone in the mainstream market. According to a report by Gadgets 360, it appears like the company plans on adding a new 4G member to the 3310 feature family. Official details regarding the handset have not been confirmed as of yet. The special Nokia 3310 (4G variant) has apparently been spotted on the Chinese Telecommunications Certification Authority (TENAA) website. The handset can be seen as carrying the model number, TA-1077.

To recall, the Finnish technology giant introduced the original Nokia 3310 feature phone, equipped with the 2G connectivity option at the official Mobile World Congress (MWC) event of 2017, earlier in February this year. The company later brought the 3G variant of it into the mainstream market.

The handset came for a meager price. As far as the latest TENAA listing is concerned, the Nokia 3310 (4G variant) expands support for a wide variety of networks, including the TD-LTE, TD-SCDMA, and GSM networks. The handset can be seen running Alibaba’s Yun OS operating system. For those who aren’t aware, Yun OS is a custom version of Android. The original Nokia 3310 feature phone debuted with a Java-based feature OS. It is still unclear whether the new platform is expected to be a part of the global version of the latest Nokia 3310 feature phone.

Talking about its specifications, the Nokia 3310 feature phone (4G variant) is expected to feature a 2.4-inch QVGA (240 x 320 pixels) color display along with a 2-megapixel rear camera and LED flash and 64GB of internal storage along with a 1,200mAh battery which is removable by nature. Furthermore, the handset will pack a dual-SIM support onboard as well. Through this, users can connect to two networks at the same time. Just like the original one, the latest version will end up featuring support for Bluetooth v2.1 and Micro-USB.
