The older iteration couldn't work in the country because of incompatible networks, so the new 3G version should take care of that particular issue.

Most of it is nostalgia, but that didn't stop HMD Global launching a new version of the phone earlier this year.

The revamped Nokia 3310 was easily one of the biggest launches at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow back in February.

The new Nokia 3310 3G variant will reach out to more countries as it now comes with a support of 3G connectivity.

Now, they're finally releasing the 3310 in glorious 3G, with Australia the very first market to get it from October 16. It only supported 2G networks.

"The addition of 3G data connectivity brings this popular phone to even more fans around the world", HMD writes in a press release.

With this development, Nokia 8 is also likely to get the Oreo update in coming months, if not so in this year-end as recently the beta update for Nokia 8 smartphone was teased by Juho Sarvikas, the Chief Product Officer at HMD Global on twitter.

HMD Global has announced the availability of the new Nokia 3310 3g from mid-October carrying a price tag of €69 or Rs 5,400 approximately. Battery life for talk time comes in at 6.5 hours, but the phone can do without a top up for 27 days on standby.

Specifications of the 3G variant of Nokia 3310 are the same as its predecessor.

The Nokia 3310 3G retains the iconic design language associated with the original device and has Azure, Yellow, Warm Red and Charcoal as colour options.

The new Nokia 3310 features a massive 1200mAh battery.

HMD says that the slightly larger size will actually make the Nokia 3310 3G more ergonomic.

At the MWC 2017 event held in Barcelona, Nokia announced all-new Nokia 3310 feature phone alongside the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 Android smartphones.

Moreover, Nokia 3310 3G will be available in both single-SIM and dual-SIM options. All bodies will have a matte finish and will offer a silver keypad. The phone also features its classic Snake game optimised for the new color screen.
