Nokia's much-anticipated smartphones have not overstayed their welcome, it seems. The TENAA listing for the LTE-equipped Nokia 3310 shows off a phone that is visually identical to existing versions of the Nokia 3310 (2017) but is set apart by the inclusion of compatibility with some 4G LTE bands.

In April this year, HMD Global made a decision to bring back the Nokia 3310 in order to monetize the nostalgic value that the phone has. Recently, the same device received Bluetooth SIG certification as well. The TENAA images of the Nokia 3310 4G variant revealed a similar design of the Nokia 3310 3G.

The Nokia 3310 4G variant spotted.

As 2G networks are not in use in many countries, the Nokia 3310 3G was launched. It has more spacing between the keys to facilitate a better typing experience.

The Yun OS is developed based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and lacks the Google Play Services support. These mostly consist of the TD-LTE bands used in eastern markets, most likely to accommodate the fact that many of these markets have entirely shuttered the 2G and 3G bands that other versions of the Nokia 3310 (2017) run on. Onboard this device are several Series 30+ OS supporting several social media apps including the most popular ones like Twitter, Facebook, and Skype. "Design wise, the 4G version is nearly identical to its predecessors [except for the placement of LED flash and speakers.] The dimension remains at 117 x 52.4 x 13.35 mm, display at 2.4" and so the battery capacity that is said to be the same 1200mAh.

Moreover, if the Nokia 3310 4G variant is launched, then it will be priced relatively higher than the 3G and 2G variants of the device, so we need to wait for its launch to know more details.
