We could not ask for a phone that represents the phrase “No Time To Die” better than the Nokia 3310. According to HMD Global, the phone will appear alongside fellow legendary icon James Bond in the latter’s upcoming movie.
However, the beloved British MI6 agent might not be using the phone, but rather Nokia’s new 5G smartphone instead. The Finnish company’s collaboration with Bond’s No Time To Die film was initially teased by HMD Global vice president Juho Sarvikas on 3 March. He also revealed that the 5G handset will launch in London on 19 March this year.
Besides the new phone and the 3310, Nokia confirms that the new Bond movie will feature the Nokia 7.2 smartphone as well. Additionally, the film will also see Agent Nomi (Lashana Lynch) using the device and utilising its 5G capability to her advantage. How specific.
There’s no guarantee that we’ll see Bond actually use the Nokia 3310, but we can’t help imagining how awesome that would be. Perhaps as an indestructible gadget that will help 007 in tough situations? Who knows.
That said, it’s uncertain if Rami Malek’s bond villain character Safin will also sport a Nokia phone. Regardless, we all know for certain that it won’t be an iPhone.
Just in case you missed it, No Time To Die has been delayed from its April release due to coronavirus concerns. The movie will instead premiere in Malaysian cinemas on 24 November 2020.
