A remake of the legendary Nokia 5310 XpressMusic is introduced

20 March 2020

In its time, the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic made a splash. In the truest sense of the word. It was a music phone - with physical buttons like those of a player. They were located on the side edge.

That said, it made the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic almost iconic. Alas, more than 12 years have passed since then. The device has long been history. But many - those who remembered those years - remember it.

Fans of the device are in for a surprise. HMD Global, which owns the Nokia brand, has announced a modern remake. Now it's just called Nokia 5310.

The device looks different than the original. However, the resemblance is preserved. HMD Global has "freshened up" the design a bit. But the rest has changed a little. The specifications are modest by the standards of 2020.

The Nokia 5310 is the usual keypad cell phone. The gadget offers a 2.4-inch screen with a resolution of 320 by 240 pixels. The OS is an old-fashioned Series 30+. Completing the configuration is 8 MB of RAM and a Mediatek MT6260A processor.

Communications is carried out only in networks 2G. Built-in memory is only 16 MB. To store music, an SD card is required. The corresponding slot is available. Models with a capacity of up to 32 GB are supported.

The famous buttons on the sides are in place. Nokia 5310 is also equipped with powerful speakers. In addition, there is an FM receiver, microUSB port, VGA camera, Bluetooth 3.9 adapter and 3.5mm jack (for wired headphones).

How much is HMD Global asking for nostalgia? The product is priced at 39 euros. At the current exchange rate - that's about 3,300 rubles.
