Nokia has finally unveiled its reincarnation of the legendary 3310 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The re-imagined device is said to be a throwback to the original device, blended with modern sensibilities.
According to HMD, the manufacturer of phones bearing the once-grand Nokia name, the 3310 now has internet, a colour screen, a basic 2MP camera and a selection of vibrant colour schemes.
Believe it or not, the new 3310 is reported to have an even better battery than the original, boasting a 22-hour talk time alongside a “month long stand-by”. Wow.
The device is expected to retail at around €49 across Europe. It’s yet to be announced whether we’ll see it here in South Africa.
HMD has effectively exploited the nostalgia of long-time Nokia users, bringing back its (and the world’s) best-selling feature phone.
The original 3310 was famed for its battery life and durability, to the point of becoming something of an urban legend.
HMD also used the MWC2017 to announce several Android devices. The Nokia 3, 5 and 6 will fill different gaps in the market, in an attempt to re-invent and revive the brand that once dominated the mobile world.
