IT'S BACK! Nokia 3310 2017 Version on Sale – See Specs

Nokia was famous for their reliable, robust, feature-rich mobile devices that could last for ‘weeks’, or at least it feels like it in today’s battery-life terms.

Nokia’s bestseller and arguably the best phone at the time of launch was the Nokia 3310. The 3310 sold 126 million units worldwide and its durability and most importantly to its long lasting battery capacity is so widely acclaimed today

So in order to boost sales (meager as they are), Nokia is digging up old blueprints and applying them to new phones. They plan on relaunching their 3310 flagship while tickling our nostalgia fancy. Because why fix something that never broke. Literally, that phone never broke.

Leaked specs shows that the phone will retain most of the older vibe (especially the monochrome screen) with a more modern look and feel and packed a range of features, including a clock, calculator, the ability to store up to ten reminders and four games: Snake II, Pairs II, Space Impact, and Bantumi.

However, newer pictures of the leak shows a fullscreen android version with the same legendary Nokia 3310 shape and feel of sturdy body and hardened glass. If it runs on Android, it will be a big plus if the battery can stand the test of time as its predecessor.

The new iteration of the 3310 will go on sale for €59 (N33k), and aimed to sell as the reliable version that it emulates. It will be launched at Mobile World Congress later this month.

A large portion of the market cannot afford an expensive smartphone and often purchase entry level devices. Developing countries thrive on prepaid data slim devices with long battery life and minimal charges. By taking a step back, Nokia may actually be leaping forward.

Nokia failed miserably in the smartphone era and eventually sold out to Microsoft. But since then it has gained ground by releasing new versions of old phones, such as the Nokia 215, which boasts a price tag of $29 and lasts for 29 days on standby.

Phones made under the Nokia brand are now sold by HMD Global, a Finnish company that bought a ‘scratch-card’ and the rights to its name. HMD will launch other new mobiles – the Nokia 3, 5 and 6 – at the same MWC event.
