If we are to hope for TENAA’s listings to become true anytime soon, then the 4G 3310 could be running on YunOS. YunOS was developed by Alibaba group for trying their hands designing a mobile phone operating system. What’s unique about YunOS is that unlike Amazon’s Firefox OS, it can run Android apps as it is based on Google’s Android Open Source Project (AOSP). The OS is actively used in China, where Alibaba claims that around 157 million devices are utilising the platform.
If the 3310 comes up with YunOS, then there might be a possibility of the phone becoming a massive hit amongst the ‘budget-smartphone-seeking’ crowd. Android app support will allow for popular messaging platform WhatsApp to be ported to the feature phone, which is very important these days in a smartphone-oriented country like India. However, we also expect Nokia to put in beefier specifications inside that cutesy body to provide a seamless user experience.
