If you’re a 90’s kid, chances are that Nokia 3310 was your first mobile phone. It was mine. And I miss it a lot. But today, many people like me, have good news! Nokia 3310 just got released in India and is back in a new form! Well, it wasn’t launched in India exactly (but will soon come), but in the MWC event in Barcelona where the company representatives launched the all new 3310.
When will Nokia 3310 be available in India?
Pretty soon. There is no official word yet, as the company just announced the launch of 3310 globally. And soon, it is to be launched in countries like India. Good news is that, we have information on how much the Nokia 3310 will cost in India.
Nokia 3310 Price in India
According to Nokia’s official website, Nokia has released three other different models along with the 3310. The Nokia 3, 5 and 6. Nokia 3 has a MTK6737 chipset, while Nokia 5 & 6 both has SD430 variant chipset. Nokia 3 is priced at 139 Euro (Rs. 9782.83), 4: 189 Euro (Rs. 13301.83) and 5 is priced at 229 Euro with a special version at 299 Euro (Rs. 16117.03 and 21043.63). Now these are UK prices, so Indian phones will be priced differently.
Who is Nokia 3310 for?
I think the Nokia 3310 is not for everyone. It sure has a nostalgic angle to it that we all 90-‘s kid will cherish. But other than that, it is clearly aimed for emerging markets. People who wants a basic phone for cheap! For example, people in rural places who only have 2G connectivity and would use it for just mostly talking purposes. The battery life is amazing (up to a day or so talk time) and I can see a lot of people in rural places, with less power and electricity availability using it.
When can you buy Nokia 3310 in India?
Nokia 3310 will be available in India by mid 2017 according to reports. There are no confirmed dates yet.
