It is also expected that HMD Global might showcase the Nokia 3310 4G at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. There is no clarity over the price of this handset as HMD Global has not revealed the pricing and availability details yet.

HMD Global, the company that holds the license to manufacture Nokia branded smartphones, launched the re-imagined version of Nokia 3310 feature phone. This smartphone will quite probably reach countries outside of China as well, though, it is expected to make its way to the USA and Europe in the coming months, and it is even possible that HMD will officially announce it during next month's Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.

Nokia 3310 4G comes in Deep Black and Fresh Blue colors. While it looks the same as the first revamped Nokia 3310, the company has replaced the previous Java-based operating system in favor of YunOS which is a forked version of Android developed by Alibaba. To keep up with the times, the device also comes with Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11b/g/n WiFi support.

A 4G model of the Nokia 3310 makes a complete sense if you are living in India.

The Nokia 3310 4G variant will support 4G TD-LTE with VOLTE and Micro USB interface.

Nokia 3310 4G features a 2.4-inch VGA display (240p) display with an alphanumeric keypad.

If it shows up at MWC at the end of February, Nokia's nostalgia trip of a phone might not capture hearts and minds that it did past year, but a 4G-enhanced classic will certainly appeal to good amount of people. The rear facing camera gets an LED flash.

Unfortunately, those features come at a serious cost to battery life, which drops from an estimated 15 hours of talk time for 2G calls to just five hours on LTE. We can expect it to be priced appropriately as there are several feature phones with 4G capability in the market these days such as the Reliance JioPhone and Micromax Bharat 1.
