Nokia lives between the past and the present.
As well as showing off their new Nokia XR20 and Nokia C30, they are also bringing back one of their most legendary phones. 20 years later, the Nokia 6310 returns as a basic phone, as a ‘feature phone’ for those who need to call, listen to the radio and play ‘Snake’.
These are the features of the new Nokia 6310 in its 2021 version, with slightly curved lines and a more casual look compared to the original.

Going through the list of technical specifications of the Nokia 6310 is strange, as they are a far cry from what we are used to seeing in today’s smartphones, including the entry-level range. It’s a basic phone, with a price tag that’s much cheaper than cheap smartphones. We don’t get Android, but a Nokia Series S30+ operating system that we saw with the resurrection of the Nokia 3310.
We are offered an Opera Mini browser, along with applications such as Bing Search, Facebook or the legendary snake game. We can also take photos and play music in MP3 format.
The Nokia 6310 comes with a 2.8-inch colour display with curved edges, numeric keypad and 16 MB of internal storage, expandable up to 32 GB via microSD card. To drive this minimalist system we have 8 MB of RAM. It also has FM radio and a 0.3 megapixel camera. As you can see, very basic specs.
In terms of battery life, the Nokia comes with 1,150 mAh, which promises weeks of use both at rest and with occasional use. This autonomy is converted into 19 hours of talk time. On this point, the new Nokia does mimic the original very well.
Not so similar is the feel of the design. While the original Nokia 6310i had grey accents and a more “business” look, this new Nokia 6310 has a more casual look, with a more curved design and three rather cheerful colours. The target audience has changed.
The buttons on the new Nokia 6310 are also larger. HMD Global, the company behind Nokia, presents this device as a basic mobile phone for those who want to go out for sport, listen to the radio in a simple way and have an accessory in the car or in the backpack for when we need it.
The Nokia 6310 will be available in three colours: dark green, yellow and black. It will be officially priced at approximately $40 and will be available globally.
