It’s no surprise that HMD Global wants to launch a 4G version of the Nokia 3310. Since the 2G model wouldn’t work in all countries, HMD released the 3G Nokia 3310, which is available in the United States as well but to cover even more markets a 4G model is absolutely necessary.
However, a much better Nokia 3310 that will feature 4G support will be launched next year. The feature phone was recently certified at TENAA, the Chinese regulatory commission, which suggests we might not have to wait too long for the device to go official.
There are no differences between the other two Nokia 3310 models and the upcoming one, except for the fact that the latter comes with 4G support. Design-wise they look just about the same, according to the pictures filed by HMD Global at TENAA.
The 3G Nokia 3310 was launched in the United States for $60, but the 4G variant might be priced a bit higher. Still, the 4G Nokia 3310 will remain a cheap feature phone, probably below the $80 price mark.
