Feature phone – Nokia 5310. When we think about Nokia, we often end up going down the nostalgia road, remembering the classic feature phones that came back in the day. The Finnish handset maker, in the past few years, has tried its best to bring back that nostalgia factor to make customers stick around. And today it might do that again by introducing the refreshed version of another classic Nokia feature phone – Nokia 5310.
If this rings a bell, yes the Nokia 5310 is the 2020 version of the popular Xpress Music phone, which will launch today in India. The price of the device is hard to guess for now. However, the specifications are all out since this feature phone has been listed on the website.
NOKIA 5310 LITTLE DIFFERENT FROM THE PREVIOUS VERSION:
The new Nokia 5310 looks slightly different from the 2007 version. It doesn’t have that slim build with the music buttons that really stood out. But the company has retained the music key buttons on the 2020 Nokia 5310. It has a slightly thicker build with color combinations of white plus red, and black plus red.
And those interested in the specifics, the new Nokia 5310comes with dual front-facing speakers. There’s a built-in MP3 player along with FM radio. It also supports expandable storage up to 32GB and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Running on Series 30+ OS, the device has a 2.4-inch QVGA screen, 8MB RAM, and is powered by MT6260A CPU.
Being a feature phone, it weighs light at 88.2 grams and measures 123.7 x 52.4 x 13.1 mm. There’s a VGA camera at the back and a 1200mAh battery that is claimed to deliver a talk time of up to 20 hours on a single charge.

The new feature phone is a refreshed version of the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic that was launched back in August 2007. It comes with dual-SIM support and offers as much as 22 days of battery life on a single charge. The Nokia 5310 also comes preloaded with an MP3 player and wireless FM radio.
