What is dead may never die...
…but rises again harder and stronger — as is in the case of the Nokia 3310. With its infinite battery life and ability to withstand anything you threw at it (or threw it at), this was the special ops equivalent of phones back in the day.
And now 17 years after its original debut, the legendary phone is rumoured for a mighty comeback at the upcoming MWC in Barcelona.
According to data obtained by Evan ‘EvLeaks’ Blass of VentureBeat, Finnish manufacturer HMD Global Oy, which owns the license for the Nokia brand, is planning to release a modern version of the classic phone at a price of around $S89.
The company will also be releasing three other phones at the end of the month — the 5.5in Snapdragon 430 Nokia 6 that was announced late last year, along with two other mid-range to entry level Android Nougat devices, the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3.
We’re still mostly intrigued by the updated 3310 however. Will it only need to be charged once every two months? Will it still be damn near indestructible? Will it come with Snake II for crying out loud? Answers to these burning questions and more come 27 February, hopefully.
