Nokia 3310 (2017) to Release on April 28, Pre-Order Listings Tip

Nokia-3310

If there is a Nokia phone that has grabbed more attention and headlines than others since the company announced its comeback to the market, it has been the Nokia 3310 (2017). Now it seems like the revamped version of the feature phone will be made available later this month by the Finnish company as device’s pre-order listings for Germany and Austria have tipped it to release on April 28. Further, the 3G variant listing of the phone has been confirmed to be false by the company.

As per the pre-order listings spotted by NokiaPowerUser, the Nokia 3310 (2017) will be made available in both Germany and Austria on April 28. Interestingly, the device seems to carry a higher price tag (mostly around EUR 56) than company’s recommended price of EUR 49 (roughly Rs. 3,400) in these listings.

“What makes these listings appear genuine is the fact that they have article numbers for Nokia 3310 models valid across other retailers,” NPU said in its report. The retailers who have posted the pre-order listings for the phone include Comstern (Germany and Austria), Allstechnik, and E-Tec.

Separately, HMD Global, the company which currently holds the right to manufacture and sell phones under Nokia brand name, has confirmed to NPU that a pre-order listing of a Nokia 3310 (2017) variant with support for 3G is incorrect and the phone will only be supporting 2G connectivity.

The 2G connectivity limitation is something that might prevent the feature phone from being launched in many developed markets but it seems like the hope that this 3G variant listing might have given has now been taken away by the company.

To recall, Nokia 3310 (2017), despite being just a feature phone, managed to take away the spotlight from most smartphones at MWC 2017 at this can be seen as the unique selling point for Nokia. The device doesn’t pack any powerful features but the nostalgia factor was enough for it to grab attention from users.
