However, it is now confirmed that the iconic Nokia 3310 that has been redesigned to sooth the eyes of the current generation of smartphone users is not coming to India and is going to target consumers in Australia and the United States.

According to a report by The Economic Times, Nokia may foray into the 4G feature phones market in India.

HMD Global is the company that develops and markets feature phones and smartphones under the Nokia brand name. Hence, the rumor mill is speculating that the 4G edition of Nokia 3310 will arrive to rival with JioPhone feature phone in India. It comes in Polished Blue, Tempered Blue and Steel colour variants and will be made available starting October 14. Since the JioPhone is expected to impact the market for feature phones, HMD Global is monitoring is its market response. The home button is out so the fingerprint goes at the back.

Nokia getting a 4G feature phone in the market can be a big move, since the company has been known for its features phones. At the moment, telecom operators like Airtel and Idea, smartphone makers such as Intex and Lava are reported to be working on a 4G VoLTE enabled feature phone. Some of the other key specifications include 5.3-inch Quad HD display, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB expandable storage and a 3090mAh battery. But the YouTuber still advised using a protective screen film on top.

We wouldn't call it unfair if Nokia takes time preparing 8.0 for Nokia 3, because a later than sooner release of Android OS updates is something we not only usually see, but also expect from OEMs. Nokia and HMD advertised that the Nokia 8 used 600 series aluminum. Starting with the positive sides, the Nokia 8 doesn't bend. Nokia 8 uses LCD display which is a more power consuming and comparatively less bright. The handset comes with a 13 megapixel camera on the front for Selfies., on the back there is a a dual camera setup with two 13 megapixel cameras.
