Nokia 3310 (2.0) To Go On Sale in Nigeria. Who is Buying?

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.

Here is a specs reminder:

  • Weight: 79.6 g (including battery)

  • MicroSD card support up to 32GB
  • Standby time: up to 31.0 days, talk time: up to 22.1 hours

The device will also be available in four colors: glossy red and glossy yellow and matte blue and gray.
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.

    Not me

    Truth be told, I see no need for this device safe the battery and I already have 3 powerbanks to help with that
    So next time Nokia.

    I wonder why they had to make this one available first and not the high end ones, did they tell them we are majorly poor people in the country?

  2. If it goes for less than ₦9000, I’m in.

    I would so buy this phone when it goes on sale here. This is a proper secondary phone+it brings back good memories (nostalgia much?). This phone would do well, if they price it right. I see alot of parents buying their kids this phone as their first.

    I’ll buy if the price is not above N8000
