Earlier this year the folks at HMD Global announced that they will be relaunching the Nokia 3310 which is probably one of the most iconic phones in history. The company gave it a new look and also some new features, but it seems that the phone wasn’t really updated for modern times as it was missing 3G connectivity.

This is why the Nokia 3310 was not launched in the US as 2G is one of the older networks that carriers across the country are in the process of shutting down. However for those in the US who want the Nokia 3310, you could be in luck because HMD Global has recently taken the wraps off the Nokia 3310 3G.

As the name implies, this is the Nokia 3310 with 3G capabilities. Of course in this day and age where 4G LTE is becoming the standard and with 5G networks already being developed, 3G certainly does seem like an odd choice, but we guess it’s better than nothing. In addition to the 3G compatibility, the handset will be launched in new color options and will also sport a brand new user interface.

There is no confirmation of whether or not it will be launched stateside, but like we said the choice to make the phone 3G compatible could indicate that it could work in the US should you choose to import it. It is expected to be rolled out mid-October where it will be priced at €69.
