New Delhi: 3G variant of Nokia 3310 has recently got the approval from Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that regulates interstate as well as the international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable in the US, indicating its forthcoming launch in the United States.

A report reveals that the Nokia 3310 3G will arrive later this year. The feature phone should be available at Three Ireland (an Irish telecom carrier) in late September or early October. However, HMD Global has not officially announced anything regarding the new 3G model.

Three Ireland has confirmed by a Tweet that it will be carrying Nokia 3310 3G version, once it becomes available in late September to early October.

The tweet reads “We will be ranging the 3G version of the Nokia 3310, the current launch date of late is September early October” which confirms the availability with the Isris carrier.
