Nokia 3210 Feature Phone by Human Mobile Devices

Listen up, folks. Dumbphone is the ‘in’ thing now. As it turns out, young people want to switch off and embrace the digital detox movement. Well, I guess I am not a ‘young person’ because I do not have that desire. But if you do want to go back to the simpler times when a phone is just a phone, well, good news! The Nokia 3210 is back to aid in your digital detox journey.

Human Mobile Devices (HMD), the brand behind the Nokia phones, is celebrating the 25 years of the Nokia 3210 by bringing back the icon. Why the 3210? Well, if you are too young to know, this model was a huge hit when it was released in 1999. It was in the hands of hundreds of millions of people.

But make no mistake. This is no Nokia 3210 from 1999; it is a reimagining of the icon. It has the silhouette, the look and feel of the OG handset but with a touch of modernity. You know it’s new but the connection to the handset from 25 years ago is unmistakable.

In addition to a sleek retro design, it comes loaded with all the essential features you’d expect from the OG dumbphone, including a large display, a 2 MP camera with flash (which doubles as a torch or flashlight for North Americans), built-in FM radio receiver, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and the handset comes pre-loaded with the good old game of Snake.

While it does have all the original features, they are updated for modern times. It has a vibrant 2.4” QVGA display, the flash is LED, and it has a long-lasting 1,450 mAh battery.

Moreover, it has got 4G, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB-C port, 128 MB internal storage (that’s a megabyte with an ‘M’), microSD card support up to 32 GB, a built-in MP3 player, a microphone, one speaker, and a whopping 64 MB RAM.

The device is powered by Unisoc T107 and it runs on S30+ OS. Don’t expect it to do much but it’d be a good communication device when you needed it.

Unfortunately, as always, NA is being left out. The Nokia 3210 is available in Africa, India, the Middle East, and select countries in APAC and in three exclusive colors: Scuba Blue, Grunge Black, and Y2K Gold.

Last checked, we do not find it listed anywhere. But we heard the 349 yuan (about 48 USD) device was promptly sold out when it became available in China on May 08, 2024. The Nokia 3210 is not the first classic Nokia to make a return. Over the years there have been several, including the iconic 8110 “banana” phone and the 3310.
