Ever since HMD Global resurrected the iconic Nokia 3310 at the Mobile World Congress 2017 (MWC 2017) back in February, a strange nostalgia has gripped the world. The legendary phone– Nokia 3310, that was known for its ‘unbreakable’ built back in the 2000s, made a stellar comeback after 17 years and the fans welcomed it with open arms. Such was the anticipation that Nokia Mobiles’ Twitter page was filled with questions about the launch data. After what seems to be aeons of wait, the company finally launched Nokia 3310 in the India market last week.
To give a quick recap of the specifications, Nokia 3310 (2017) sports 2.4-inch display and runs on Series 30+ operating system. It comes with 2GB RAM and 16MB internal memory that can be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card. The phone supports 2G and comes with a 2MP rear camera.
The interesting thing to be noted here is the price of the rejigged phone. The new Nokia 3310 is priced at Rs 3,310, which might seem to be a bit overboard given that the phone has nothing substantial to offer other than its iconic appeal, peppy new colours and Snakes with 3D graphics.
But don’t dear friends, as a company called Darago has come with a replica of the original phone at almost half the price. Darago 3310 is available in Navy Blue colour on Flipkart for Rs 799 and in Red colour on Snapdeal for Rs 819. Granted that Darago 3310 is not as power-packed as Nokia 3310 (2017) (pun intended), the specifications won’t make much of a difference. If you still want to know, Darago 3310 sports a 1.77-inch display with 1MB RAM and 8GB expandable storage. It has 2G for connectivity and a 0.3MP rear camera with flash. It comes with a 1,050 mAh battery.
So if you want to flash a brand new Nokia 3310 without having to splurge as much, Darago 3310 is your easy fix!
