HMD Global has continued with its refreshing of old Nokia Classics. Previously we saw them refresh the popular 3310, then the banana phone 8110, then the Nokia 2720, and early this year they announced the 5310 XpressMusic. You can now buy this refresh in Kenya for KES. 4,999, HMD East Africa has announced.
The phone features a 2.4-inch QVGA (240×320 pixels) display, powered by a MT6260A processor and runs on Nokia Series 30+ OS.
The colour options available are black and white. It is a Dual-Sim device with 8MB RAM/16MB of ROM, but you can expand the storage up to 32GB via microSD card.
This smartphone has dedicated music buttons that allow you to scan between your favorite radio stations, skip songs or adjust the volume so you never have to miss a beat.
The phone comes with a preloaded MP3 player and powerful dual front-facing speakers for you to enjoy bold and loud music or the radio at any given time. The in-built FM radio enables you to listen to your favorite radio stations without the need for headphones, you simply switch on to your favorite station and listen using the phone’s loudspeakers.
The removable 1200mAh battery of the Nokia 5310 gives you up to 22 days of battery life from a single charge, allowing up to 30 days in standby mode and up to 20 hours of talk time.
When it comes to connectivity, the device comes with a micro USB 1.1 port, a 3.5 mm audio jack, and Bluetooth 3.0. Nokia 5310 also comes with a VGA camera at the back with an LED flash, a 3.5mm headphone jack.
