The return of the classic cell phone: Nokia sells another Panorama 6310 – Tech News Inc

The Nokia 6310 is back. Nokia has updated classic cellular technology from the early 2000s quite a bit — although it certainly didn’t turn the new version into a smartphone. This is ensured not least by pure communication via GSM 900/1800.

But for 59.90 euros, according to the manufacturer, the phone offers, among other things, a “week” battery life, a 2.8-inch screen and larger buttons. Nokia also offers new, enlarged menus and larger font options.

A phone with its polycarbonate casing can also do multimedia – at least from a retro perspective. A built-in FM radio or MP3 player can provide entertainment just like a game of “Snake”. There is also a camera – with a resolution of 0.3 megapixels. There is a microSD card slot with a capacity of up to 32 GB. The internal memory is 8 megabytes.

The newly launched classic model cannot work LTE. Nokia puts a standby battery life of up to approximately 22 days and a net talk time of up to 19 hours. The battery has a capacity of 1150 mAh, which is removable. The old phone is available in black and dark green, among others.

Since, according to the data sheet, it does not support modern wireless connections via LTE, the Nokia retro is not an unreserved recommendation for travelers. Switzerland, for example, started taking its GSM network out of service as early as 2020, and many networks are out of service in the USA.

Other countries are likely to follow suit. Germany does not yet have a specific date for the shutdown of the GSM network. (dpa)
