By : |February 16, 2017 0

Nokia 3310, the most simple yet legendary phone with an indestructible body, is coming back, in a resurrected form. Yes, the same Nokia 3310, which was the first mobile phone for many of us and also one of the most popular phones in the year 2000.

HMD Global, the Finnish company that owns the rights to use Nokia’s brand on mobile phones, is reportedly aiming to reignite the great nostalgia around Nokia 3310.

The renowned and reliable leaker Evan Blass has reported that HMD is making a handset that shares the 3310 name. The revised 3310, which will cost €59, will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of the month.

Launched 17 years back, the Nokia 3310 was discontinued by its makers in 2005. But if the reports are accurate, HMD is launching a product to compete undeviatingly with the low-end Android smartphones.

Battery life, one of the most troubling areas of today’s high-end smartphones, will be renewed with Nokia 3310. Nokia 3310 offered 260 hours of standby time and a decent 4 hours and 30 minutes of talk time for a 1000mAh battery. With the new 3310 phone, users can expect the same battery life or maybe more.

The latest report also suggests the return of the legendary Snake mobile game. Don’t forget; the Snake game was one of the most popular mobile games in the 2000s! The new 3310, a feature phone, is expected to bring Snake II, which we hope will come with some exciting features.

Apart from Nokia 3310, the MWC will also witness the launch of two mid to low-end Android smartphones – the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3.

With a 5.2-inch display at 720p, 2GB of RAM, the Nokia 5, is expected to come with a low-end Snapdragon 430 chipset. On the camera front, Nokia 5 will have a 12 megapixels sensor at a price of €199.

Nokia 3 will be an entry-level Android; and will initially go for €149.
