The specifications of the New Nokia 3310 3G variant are nearly same to the old Nokia 3310 which was launched earlier this year.

The handset will go sale in Australia starting October 16 and will be available via Optus and Vodafone mobile carriers.

The new Nokia 3310 3G variant will reach out to more countries as it now comes with a support of 3G connectivity. The 2.5G Nokia 3310 never made it to the U.S, because it wouldn't work on USA networks, but a 3G version had been rumored after HMD Global filed an application with the FCC for a 3G device that resembled the 3310's model number.

After a three-year leave of absence, Nokia 3310 leads the way in marking the return of Nokia mobile phones to Singapore.

Uganda introduces bill to remove presidential age limit
Under Uganda's current laws, a person above the age of 75 can not vie for the office of president. Opposition parties see this motion as an attempted power by the President to extend his rule.

Nokia's retro-flavoured 3310 phone is finally coming to Australia in a 3G version that will actually work on our networks. It only supported 2G networks. The phone is a dual sim phone and now supports 3G connectivity. "In a world dominated by smartphones, the mix of nostalgia and a handsome phone that just keeps going has captured people's imagination", HMD Global chief product officer Juho Sarvikas said.

The Nokia 3310 3G will have a €69 price tag - so you're paying €20 more for 3G and a few different colours. The new Nokia 3310 3G variant comes with new customising options which will allow users to choose color themes.

Earlier this year HMD, the company that owns the rights to the Nokia name, released a brand new feature phone that was given more fanfare than its subsequent smartphone releases.

So let's wait and see the actual price - it's been confirmed to land on O2 in the United Kingdom already - before deciding whether HMD is playing a smart game or just likely to upset users who purchased the original, lifetime-limited version. It will be offered in four colors (Yellow, Warm Red, Azure and Charcoal). The Nokia 3310 3G variant has 64GB internal memory, which can be expanded to 32GB with a microSD card. The phone also features the legendary Snake game which has been updated for the colour screen.

Commenting on its legendary battery life legacy, Nokia claims that even after running with a 3G feature, the phone will have an impressive standby time of 27 days and talk time of 6.5 hours.
