Earlier this month, Venture Beat reporter Evan Blass announced that Nokia could possibly be reviving its popular classic 3310 model.
True enough, HMD Global Oy–the Finnish manufacturer with exclusive rights to market mobiles under the Nokia brand–unveiled the revamped Nokia 3310 at the Mobile World Congress, held 26 February in Barcelona.
The original, launched in 2000, was touted as being “indestructible”, with an impressive long-lasting battery life and of course who can forget, the renowned ‘Snake’ game.
Fast-forward to 2017 and this refurbished version holds much similarity to the original design. It’s remained committed to housing a powerful battery–think 22 hours talk time and capable of staying alive for one month on standby–as well as an upgraded version of ‘Snake’.
The updated Nokia 3310 offers a nice walk down memory lane, evident through the enthusiastic and nostalgic tweets that surfaced following the mobile’s debut. If people change their minds and decide that their smartphone should be a thing of the past, they can revert to the revived 2G model, which offers a two-megapixel rear camera at a more affordable US$52 (€49), available for purchase later this year.
