HMD will launch another remake of the Nokia brand. The model was announced last week, in a purely online event where the company also launched a 5G smartphone with a price below 600 euros.
After the Nokia 3310, 8110 and 2720 Flip, the company will now remake the 5310. The model was originally launched under the XpressMusic line, in 2007, and had music as its focus. Remember that the phone had three physical buttons to pause, play, pass and rewind tracks; a headphone jack and a memory card slot up to 4GB.
The new version will retain several elements of the original design, such as the physical buttons and the earphone jack. The equipment will also keep the FM radio integrated and the slot for microSD cards, only this time up to 32GB.
This version will have a 2.4 inch QVGA display, a T9 keyboard and the Nokia Series 30+ operating system.
In terms of technical specifications, the presence of a MediaTek MT6260A processor, 8GB of RAM and a 1200mAh battery, which according to Nokia, is sufficient for 30 days of standby autonomy.
The Nokia 5310 did not have the same cultural impact as the Nokia 3310, but it did mark a younger generation of consumers who were beginning to use their mobile phones to do more than call and text.
HMD Global, which holds Nokia's commercial exploitation rights for the phone segment, believes that these remakes are more attractive for developing markets, for consumers who like to step away from the digital universe from time to time and for users who prefer leave your main gear at home when going abroad or for summer festivals.
The new Nokia 5310 will cost 39 euros and will be launched later this month.
