When HMD announced a revamp of the famous Nokia 3310 early this year, one of the first things that stood out was the limited cellular support.

Thirsting for the new Nokia 3310? Since the Nokia 3310 (2017) supports only 2G connectivity, its unusable in some markets like the U.S., Canada, Australia and Singapore. In line with the other Nokia-branded featurephones that have sold millions in recent years without anyone really noticing, the Series 30 3310 phone was dustproof and boasted a month's talktime.

So it didn't really matter that the handset was technically inferior in some ways to cheaper feature phones bearing the Nokia name. people were buying into a memory, not a piece of hardware. This handset will be available in Australia via Optus and Vodafone, which are Australia-based carriers. It only supported 2G networks.

Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global says, "Our reimagining of the Nokia 3310 has been a global and cultural phenomenon".

The 3G-ready Nokia 3310 is set to hit Australia on October 16. It'll retail for for €69 ($80.95/AU$$89.95). The internal storage of Nokia 3310 3G phone is 64MB and it can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD card.

If we talk about the specifications, the Nokia 3310 3G sports a 2.4 inch QVGA (240×320 pixels) color display.

HMD was definitely in the works of a Nokia 3310 3G, and the company has finally unveiled the 3G variant of what might be the world's most popular feature phone right now. The newly launched phone is available four different colors including Yellow, Warm Red, Azure and Charcoal variants. Since, it's a 3G variant the company has made some changes to its design which is now slightly thicker than the original variant of the Nokia 3310 smartphone.

Connectivity options are- 3G, Bluetooth 2.1, Micro-USB, dual-SIM, FM radio, and 3.5mm audio-jack.

The users can also enjoy the classic Snake game with new animations.

The new phone has additional features like up to six hours of talk time and 27 days of standby time.
