It has finally been confirmed! Nigeria would be one of the few African countries (the second is South Africa) to kickstart the sales of the new Nokia 3310.
Of course, this was expected because the device itself is made for developing countries like ours.

According to Joseph Umunakwe, General Manager, HMD Global, West, East, and Central Africa:
“We are delighted to bring the Nokia 3310 phone to our consumers in Nigeria. Nokia has been one of the most iconic and recognisable phone brands in our country for decades.
