Nokia reveals their latest version of the 3310

Nokia has unveiled its new-look 3310. But HMD Global Oy, the Finnish manufacturer that owns rights to market the Nokia brand, re-launched the phone ahead of the annual conference. It is described as "modern version of a classic workhorse" with plentiful battery life and a "nearly indestructible build". Yes, the iconic Nokia handset has made a comeback in a completely new avatar.

In 2017 you will be very lucky to find a phone with a battery big enough to last longer than one day, which makes the one popular, Nokia 3310 a practical superpower.

Nokia also promises 22 hours of talk-time and a month of standby time from its 1200 mAh battery.

The problem is some of these changes possibly turn the modern Nokia 3310 into a completely different device than the original model. And it will cost only €59, naturally.

The announcement was made ahead of this year's Mobile World Congress tech show in Barcelona, and comes nearly 17 years after the mobile phone made its debut in 2000. Pocket-lint will be there to bring you the latest as it happens.

The updated version of Nokia 3310 is back and took internet by storm. The phone was launched at Mobile World Congress.

The refresh also comes with two SIM card slots, Bluetooth 3.0, microSD card support up to 32GB, and a 2mp camera. So what are the specs of Nokia 3310? and does it worth a buy?

The phone will be available in Warm Red (glossy), Dark Blue (matte), Yellow (glossy) and Grey (matte) shades.

The phone will run on Nokia's Series 30+ software. It will allow web browsing, but has a much smaller range of apps than Android or phones on Apple's operating system.

"Fans have been asking for it and so we decided "let's have some fun", he said.
