HMD Global really needs to be appreciated for paying attention to the venerable and old Nokia handsets. At the resurrection of some of the earlier Nokia feature-phones, this Finnish company has presently revealed the latest version of Nokia 5310 XpressMusic. When you are a nineties kid, you would surely remember that Nokia XpressMusic was really popular for its FM radio and other music features. Now, it’s back in a completely new avatar, and it has been priced at EUR 39, which comes around to ₹3,150. The nostalgic color combinations of black-red and white-red are an added attraction.
The other USP of the phone is the audio playback ability, which is the one thing that made this phone hugely popular among the nineties kids. This phone comes with dual front facing speakers, an FM radio app, and an MP3 player. The candy bar design of the phone bears a modern touch. The phone comes with physical buttons for controlling the playbacks, such as a pause and play button, and previous and next buttons. The buttons come in the red colored rail and these look absolutely gorgeous. The feature phone also comes with a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
In other features, Nokia 5310 XpressMusic comes with a 2.4 inch QVGA display, a T9 keyboard, and a navigational button in the middle. The feature phone comes powered with Nokia Series 30+ OS. This is usually a turn off for some of the users because most of the latest Nokia feature phones, like Nokia 8110 4G, use KaiOS and come with the functionalities of basic smartphones. You will not be able to run apps like WhatsApp, Google, Gmail, and YouTube on Nokia 5310 XpressMusic. You can still use the native browser for checking up on the internet.
