It is now a tradition for HMD Global to resurrect one legacy/classic Nokia phone each year. This year’s legacy device seems to be the Nokia 5310 and it is the modern version of the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic announced way back in 2007.

The Nokia 5310 looks more like the Nokia 5200 with its white + red design and keyboard more than the actual 2007 Nokia 5310. It has two large slits at the top and bottom for stereo front-facing speakers. There is a black version of the phone too but it keeps the red-accented sides where you have the playback buttons on the right and volume control buttons on the left.

The Nokia 5310 has a 2.4-inch QVGA display that sits above an alphanumeric keypad. There is a MediaTek MT6260A chipset inside the phone with 8MP of RAM and 16MB of storage. There is a MicroSD card slot for up to an additional 32GB of storage.

The phone has Bluetooth 3.9, an audio jack, FM radio, and a VGA camera with flash on the rear. It also has a 1200mAh removable battery that charges via a MicroUSB port. The Nokia 5310 comes in single SIM and Dual SIM variants with varying standby time (22 days on the dual SIM version and 30 days on the single SIM variant).
