It is also expected that HMD Global might showcase the Nokia 3310 4G at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. If HMD Global plans to release the global variant of the phone which also runs on Android, there is a high chance it may come with stripped version of apps such as Facebook and WhatsApp, which will give it an advantage over JioPhone.

The Nokia 3310 was launched a year ago along with a bunch of Android smartphones by HMD Global. The lack of a public statement means that HMD Global might be waiting for the MWC 2018 trade show to kick to officially make the announcement.

The operating system of the device, YunOS, is developed by Alibaba during their Android Open Source Project (AOSP). There's a 3.5mm headphone jack, FM Radio, and MP3 Player preinstalled on the phone. The Nokia 3310, despite its charm, couldn't capture the market due the 4G revolution in the country. From a feature phone with 2.5G support to a new 3G variant, Nokia thought the 3310 could be more than just a souvenir.

But on Friday, a Russian presidential spokesman dismissed it as adding "fuel to the fire of anti-Russian hysteria". According to the report , AIVD's hackers no longer have access to Cozy Bear's computer systems.

The new device follows in the footsteps of the 3310 and 3310 3G as the creatively named Nokia 3310 4G, and it shares a virtually identical design to its predecessors.

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 previous year, but a 4G-enhanced classic will certainly appeal to good amount of people. The handset has a 2MP primary camera at its rear along with LED flash. Nokia 3310 4G is fueled by a 1,200mAh battery which is claimed to offer 15 hours of talktime. The smartphone packs in 512MB of internal storage, offering an expansion facility through a microSD card slot (compatible with up to 64GB microSD cards). The only real condition is the use of LTE in the new Nokia 3310 is the reception of the signal for further distribution to the mobile Internet by Wi-Fi, but in Russian Federation, the operators of this service costs money if you don't know how to get around this prohibition (on the Internet there are instructions).
