HMD Global made us all nostalgic when it announced the refurbished Nokia 3310 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017. The classic feature phone was launched in Pakistan last June and finally, the company has relaunched the device to offer 3G connectivity.
Nokia Mobiles announced the big news via their Twitter handle:

Now, in addition to the forever green snake game, the users can enjoy different apps like Facebook, Skype, Twitter and even a 3G radio. The company has made some size changes too 13.29% to be exact in volume to provide more space between buttons.
We already reported that the company plans to introduce the 3G support in its iconic feature phone. Now thanks to 3G, the battery life is reduced as compared to the plain old handset that previously made calls and looked cool in our hands.
Nokia 3310 has slightly different software than in contrast to the 2G version as HMD Global had to develop new core software to enable the 3G support for their handset. Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer HMD Global revealed in a tweet:
Moi! To step up to 3G we had to create a new asset. As easy to use and navigate but with some cool new features. You will feel right at home
