The 17-year-old Nokia 3310 is officially back!

The 17-year-old Nokia 3310 is officially back!

As expected, Nokia (or rather, HMD Global, which owns the rights to the Nokia brand for phones and tablets) has relaunched the iconic Nokia 3310 phone at Mobile World Congress today.

A decidedly ‘dumb’ 2G phone with an alphanumeric keyboard, the biggest upgrades on the new Nokia 3310 are its 2.4-inch QVGA color screen (“polarized and curved”) and a custom designed UI. The phone also boasts of a 22-hour talktime and a 1-month standby time. And yes, the classic Nokia ringtone and Snake game are on the phone as well.

Other specs include a removable 1,200mAh battery, a 2MP camera with LED flash, 16MB internal memory, up to 51 hours MP3 playback time, and microSD card support.

Snake has returned, too!

Available in four colors - warm red and yellow, both with a gloss finish; and dark blue and gray, both with a matte finish - would the new Nokia 3310 be as popular as the original 3310 that sold over 126 million units worldwide since its debut in 2000?

The 2017 Nokia 3310 will retail at an average global retail price of €49 (~S$73). It’s available as both single SIM and dual-SIM variants.
