Nokia 3310 arrival in United States trumped by carriers

Nokia 3310 arrival in United States trumped by carriers


Nokia 3310 is the talking point in the last week after HMD Global announced the return of the legend. Well, it’s not really a legend since it’s quite the different device than what the original 3310 was back in its day and is not really a return since it won’t get to the United States right away. The reason - carriers over there do not support the 900 MHz GSM band.
Nokia 3310 (2017)
Nokia 3310 (2017) is a simple phone many would love to give to their grandparents or kids since it is practically indestructible. American children and old folks would have to wait for the 2G phone because it does not support the otherwise widely-used 900 MHz connectivity band. HMD Global, owner of Nokia smartphones, and carriers are still negotiating about using the alternative 850 MHz and the 1900 MHz bands. Patrick Mercanton, head of marketing at HMD, said, quoted by CNet:
It’s not that we’re not launching in the US. It takes a little longer to ramp up.
The United States is a market where most of the phones, smart or not, are sold through carriers and a lot fewer handsets are bought through Amazon, BestBuy or the companies’ stores.
The 900 MHz band issue also relates to all the other Nokias we’ve seen at MWC - Nokia 3,Nokia 5 and Nokia 6, all of which we checked out at MWC in Barcelona.
Nokia wants to launch the devices globally in Q2 2017. Let’s hope it will manage to sort out the issue or the comeback won’t be as flashy as expected.

That’s what HMD told us and we think is a perfect description for this dual-eyed Finn. Any story that stars Carl Zeiss is one we’ll listen to, but let’s start at the beginning. The Nokia 8 has a 5.3” IPS LCD display on the front with QHD resolution and a blinding 700nits of max brightness. 2.5D Gorilla Glass 5 curves into the phone’s metal shell, which is milled out of 6000 series aluminum. The phone measures 7.9mm at the thickest point and has basic resistance to the elements with an IP54 rating.
The optical engineers at Zeiss helped make the lens for both the rear and the front cameras. The main camera features two 13MP sensors (color + monochrome) with 1.12┬Ám pixels and an f/2.0 aperture. The color camera has optical image stabilization (OIS) and there is Laser autofocus and a dual LED flash to help in the dark. The selfie camera is one-e…
