Nokia is bringing back one of its most signature handsets, the 3310 later this month at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017.

For those of you out there who are old enough to have used this phone before, you would know that the Nokia 3310 was built like a tank. Unlike today's smartphones, the Nokia 3310 could survive almost any knocks and drops. Moreover, it could last several days or even a week on a single charge! In fact, someone in Britain is still using the phone. He claims that the phone survived a spin in the washing machine and a tour in Iraq. 

The Nokia 3310 was launched 17 years ago and will be re-launched according to @evleaks. The updated model is said to be priced at €59 (~S$89). You also can expect the Nokia 3 and 5 to be launched at MWC 2017.

The Nokia 3 and 5 phones run on Android 7.0 Nougat. The Nokia 5 is rumored to sport a 5.2-inch 720p display, 2GB RAM, Snapdragon 430 chipset and a 12-megapixel rear camera. The Nokia 5 and 3 are reportedly priced at €199 and €149 respectively.
