On top of the Nokia 8.3, Nokia 5.3, and Nokia 1.3 Android smartphones, HMD Global has rebooted another Nokia classic with the announcement of the new Nokia 5310. Yes, the popular feature phone from the Finnish company’s late-2000s catalog.
But unlike the 5310 XpressMusic phone released in Nokia’s heyday, the modern 5310 doesn’t have physical buttons near the screen. It does, however, have an alphanumeric keypad and a D-pad built-in, plus a pair of action buttons on top of dedicated call and reject keys.
The updated Nokia 5310 features dual front-facing speakers as well, so even though it might not be faster or more powerful than the phone you already own, it could be louder when playing music using the loudspeakers. It’s also important to note that the 5310 comes with dedicated buttons on the side for operating the included MP3 player. Additionally, it has support for wireless FM radio for on-the-go music listeners.

For taking pictures, there’s a VGA camera on the back, but no selfie camera. On the front, you get a 2.4-inch QVGA screen. The Nokia 5310 has only 16MB of storage, though it’s expandable up to 32GB using a microSD card. A 1,200mAh battery keeps the lights on, and HMD Global quotes 30 days of standby battery life on a single charge. That should be pretty accurate for a 2G-only handset.
The phone will launch in Europe this month for a suggested retail price of €39 (around P2,137 or $42). White/red and black/red are the color options.
