Social media can sometimes pull things out of nowhere and it goes viral. Same applies to the Nokia 3310 rumor that it is to be reintroduced with Android as the operating system. The revamped Nokia 3310 is definitely coming back, but it will not run Android. It will be a feature phone as it originally was.
Let’s for a second accept the rumor and take a closer look at the shared image. The device wastes screen estate, has a deep vertical design. If that wasn’t enough, the resolution with such a screen size will be very odd resulting in app incompatibility and what not. The image as well as the idea of it running Android is not legit and nothing more than a fan fantasy. So, let’s be practical and stop spreading the image further.
HMD Global is expected to announce new Nokia phones at MWC 2017. The press invites sent by Nokia and HMD point to 27th February as the date for the press event. Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and the revamped Nokia 3310 are expected as the outcome of the event on 27th February.
