Modern Nokia 3310 gets a royal treatment with a new gold and titanium Supremo Putin Edition

Nokia's most popular feature phone, the Nokia 3310 was resurrected  at MWC 2017 with an improved design and color display. Now the iconic feature phone is getting a royal treatment as well. Russia based device maker Caviar has introduced a special luxurious model of the modern Nokia 3310.

Called Nokia 3310 Supremo Putin, the phone is inspired by Russian president Valdimir Putin, and is made out of titanium and has a gold finish. It also sports a gold-plated portrait of Putin at the rear, along with a gold seal at the bottom, with a quote from the national anthem of Russia. It also has a gold plated home button with an image of Russian Federation's coat of arms in the front.

Interestingly, the Nokia 3310 was launched in 2000, the same time Putin was elected as Russian president, and 17 year later it is getting a Putin theme.

Apart from the luxurious design, the spec and features will remain the same. It will feature 2.4-inch QVGA color display and come with 16GB internal storage, which is expandable via microSD card slot, and includes a 2MP rear camera with LED flash. It runs on the Series 30+ and comes pre-loaded with the popular Snake game. The battery capacity is 1200, which promises up to 22 hours of talk time and up to a month of standby time.

The modern Nokia 3310 is priced at just 49 Euros (Rs. 3,500), but the Caviar Nokia 3310 Supremo Putin edition carries a hefty price tag of 99,000 Russian Rubles (Rs. 1,13,200). It is up for pre-order from Caviar's official website. Caviar also sells Putin themed iPhone at an mind-boggling price.
