Nokia 3310 pre-listings appear to carry a bigger price tag than official price and HMD Global states the phone will only support 2G.
If there is a Nokia mobile that has taken hold of more attention and headings than others as the company had announced its retort to the marketplace, it has been the Nokia 3310 (2017). Currently, it seems like the restored version of the feature phone will be made accessible far along this month by the Finnish firm as device’s pre-order listings for Germany and Austria have made it to the release on 28th April. Moreover, the 3G variant listing of the mobile has been confirmed to be untrue by the firm.
As per the pre-order listings marked by NokiaPowerUser, the latest version of Nokia 3310 will be made accessible in both Austria and Germany on April 28. Remarkably, the device appears to carry a bigger price tag (typically about EUR 56) than firm’s suggested price of EUR 49 (approximately Rs. 3,400) in these listings.
“What marks these listings look genuine is the detail that they have article numbers for Nokia 3310 reproductions valid through other retailers,” NPU had said in its statement. The retailers who have dispatched the pre-order listings for the mobile comprise Comstern (Germany and Austria), Allstechnik, and E-Tec.
Distinctly, HMD Global, the firm which presently holds the right to building and sell phones below Nokia brand name, has said to NPU that a pre-order listing of a Nokia 3310 (2017) variation with the support for 3G is untrue and the mobile will only be supporting the 2G internet connectivity.
The 2G connectivity restraint is something that might avert the feature mobile from being hurled in many developed marketplaces but it appears like the hope that this 3G variant listing may have given has currently been taken away by the firm.
To remember, Nokia 3310 (2017), in spite of being just a featured phone, succeeded to take away the fuss of most of the smartphones at MWC 2017 at this can be perceived as the exclusive selling point for Nokia. The phone doesn’t pack any influential features but the wistfulness factor was adequate for it to grab attention from users.
