If you long for a time when our phones didn’t scan our faces or cost $1,000, there’s a new handset coming for you. HMD Global has launched another new Nokia 3310, and this one brings 3G speeds and a 27-day battery. And it’s coming to the U.S.
When Nokia showed off its 3310 reboot at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, it instantly created buzz. Not only was our favorite candy bar handset from the 2000s back, it also brought an updated design with a 2.4-inch screen, a removable battery, and a MicroSD slot. But it had problems, too. It didn’t have a touch screen. It didn’t run Android like the other Nokia phones. And, most importantly, it was tied to 2G networks, which meant U.S. buyers were locked out.
