As predicted, the legendary Nokia 3310 has been unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
The Nokia 3310 first burst onto the mobile market in 2000, and became extremely popular. Everyone loved that the Nokia 3310 was so durable, had a long-lasting battery, and fun mobile games like Snake. Now the Nokia 3310 has received a bit of a facelift and is set to be launched into the global market once it has been launched in Japan later this year.
HMD, the new Nokia manufacturer, took to MWC 17 to unveiled the rebooted Nokia 3310, along with four other new Nokia phones – Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. All the new Nokia devices will be Android-powered, including the rebooted Nokia 3310.
Not much was revealed about the rebooted Nokia 3310 which was originally discontinued in 2005. HMD is hoping to ride the nostalgic wave, by reintroducing phones with buttons and multiple colours with the new Nokia 3310 releasing in four, bright colours – Red, Yellow, Dark Blue and Grey. The new Nokia 3310 will also bring back Snake, which is one of the most addictive mobile games ever. The device will have browsing capabilities and will have an LCD screen, refreshing some of our favourite Nokia 3310 features.
In addition to the exciting news that the Nokia 3310 will be relaunched, the company also unveiled three other Nokia devices. The Nokia 6 device has already been available in the Japanese market for a while, but the company is now making the device available globally.
None of the new Nokia devices are particularly high-tech smartphones, and they all seem to cater for the more mid-range mobile market. To be honest, the features on the devices aren’t mind-blowing, but it’s still exciting to see Nokia making a comeback to the mobile market.
No official release date or pricing was given for the relaunched Nokia 3310 or the other new Nokia devices.
