Nokia has returned to the mobile world by launching a few Android smartphones and an upgraded Nokia 3310. The company brought back the glory of the 20 years old Nokia 3310 with the all new Nokia 3310. Nokia has modernized the design by making it slim and sleek. However, there are visible design changes that make the Nokia 3310 differ from the original Nokia 3310. The new variant comes with a MicroSD card slot, color display, and a 2MP camera. HMD Global recently launched the new Nokia  3310 in India for Rs. 3310 and is now on sale via offline retail stores. The Italian company, Caviar launched the customized new Nokia 3310 and Nokia 3310 Classic in Russia.

The Nokia 3310 Classic is actually the Nokia 222 that is made to look like the old Nokia 3310. The Caviar Nokia 3310 comes in three variants, whereas the Nokia 3310 Classic will be available in four different variants. Coming to the pricing, it varies from RUB 99,000 (approx $1700 / Rs. 111,600) to RUB 149,000 (approx $2600 / Rs. 168,000). The body of these devices are made up of a one-piece hardened titanium alloy BT23 and are said to be the sturdiest cellphones in the world. Since these devices are made in limited quantities of just 999 units each, the company is adding a unique number on every single device.

A couple of variants come with gold plated Putin’s face and Russian national anthem. The Nokia 3310 and Nokia 3310 Classic runs on Series 30+ OS and also supports dual SIM dual standby. Connectivity on these devices is only limited to 2G, and the devices will be useless in few parts of the world where the 2G network is no more supported. For those who want to capture images with this device, there is a 2MP camera on the rear. The Nokia 3310 comes with 1100mAh battery whereas the Nokia 3310 Classic packs a 1200mAh battery.

Caviar is also offering one year of manufacturer warranty, and the devices will be shipped for free in Russia. The luxurious looking phone box comes wrapped in black velvet leather. Both the variants will offer up to 22 hours of talk time and will last up to one month on standby mode. Apart from these Nokia devices, the company mainly launches the ultra premium build Apple devices like iPhones and Watches. Recently, the company also launched a few customized variants of the popular Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

    Why is there a market for this? Can someone tell me why people are paying $7000 for a remake of an old phone with crap specs? Is it really just because its sturdy?
