New Nokia 3310 Yellow, Warm Red, Dark Blue, or Grey? Which Color Do You Prefer?

I've just arrived home from the exclusive media launch of HMD Global's new Nokia branded handsets here in the Philippines, which was held at Aracama at the Fort Strip of Bonifacio Global City.

The Finnish company, which calls itself 'The New Home of Nokia Phones' formally unveiled three new Android smartphones -- but I believe many would agree with me that the most anticipated Nokia device earlier was the reimagined Nokia 3310.

Mr. Shannon Mead, Country Manager of HMD Global in the Philippines, presenting the all-new Nokia 3310.

Announced near the end of today's program as a 'surprise' product, Nokia 3310 will be available in the Philippines come the end of June 2017 with official suggested retail price of only Php 2,490, which is less than our initial guesstimate for this model.

The 2017 Nokia 3310 is a basic feature-phone with modest specs, including a 2.4-inch 240 x 320 pixels colored TN display panel, 2 MegaPixel fixed focus camera at the back with LED flash, Dual SIM (Dual microSIM) Dual Standby capability, removable 1,200 mAh battery pack delivering up to 31 days of Standby Time, Series 30 operating system, microUSB charging and data sync port, a microSD card expansion slot for various content, and - everyone's favorite - the new Snake game that comes pre-installed on the handset.

The New Nokia 3310 will out in three youthful hues. For consumers who have yet to make their minds on which color option to get, let me show you each of them.

Of all color options, this one is most reminiscent of the vintage Nokia 3310 with the thick white bands in front and the matte finish.

On a separate, for those who are asking, the tactile 'clicky' feedback of this keyboard feels almost the same as that of the old Nokia 3310 -- if not slightly better.

Apart from the colored display, perhaps the biggest improvement implemented on this fresh release is the inclusion of a rear camera with LED flash.

The New Nokia 3310's user interface is very familiar and easy to navigate. If you've used a Nokia phone in the past or even if you're total stranger to the S40 operating system, you'll find it hard to get lost in this simple UI.

If you're more attracted to hues that aren't too flashy, I will surely love this Grey option.

The matte finish also makes the phone easier to hold and less prone to accidental 'grasp slippage'.

I believe this Glossy Yellow color option is most popular among young consumers, including the millennials -- and understandably so.

It's fresh, bubbly, and vibrant. And I think it's very eye-catching.

Nokia 3310 Warm Red

It was my first time to see a Warm Red Nokia 3310 unit in the flesh at the event earlier and I'd say it's my new favorite.

The color is actually more Clementine than Red, which I like since - I believe - it makes the device look more fun and youthful.

If I'd get this phone as part of my growing gadget collection, it will be in this color. Why? Well, I think it will go well with my Shiny Sports-car Red Nokia Lumia 920, which is now in the TechPinas Gadget Vault.
