As the original Nokia 3310 was launched in 2000 and the year of Putin’s election was also the same, it seems that the only reason behind fitting both together is to celebrate both the phone and the president’s longevity.
Before this a Russian-owned Italian company also launched a gold version of the iPhone 6. That featured a similar portrait of the leader in 2014.
The iconic 3310 is considered as one of the best phones the manufacturer has ever produced. The new version has a 2.4-inch display and 16MB internal storage.
However, the special edition has the same specifications as the new Nokia 3310 but costs around 30 times more than the original model. The phone is available for purchase from Caviar website.
