PHOTO: Nokia 3310 Phone ‘Will Be Re-Released This Month’

If you’re past the age of 25, it’s safe to assume you remember the Nokia 3310. The iconic mobile was once in everyone’s pocket, and with its long battery life and excellent gaming options (obviously, we’re talking about Snake), it was a safe purchase.

Released in 2000, it replaced the 3210 (which looked very similar) and went on to sell around 126 million worldwide. It was discontinued in 2005 – but now there’s new hope for people who want a no frills handset that can stay on for up to ten days.

The handset is rumoured to be being re-released at the Mobile World Congress later this month.

HMB Global, which owns the rights to the Nokia brand, is expected to announce four new handsets for sale, among them the 3310.

It’s set to retail at around £49, VentureBeats reports.

Mobile phone reporter Evan Blass said that the phone will be a ‘homage’ to the 3310.

Its reportedly intended to be marketed to European consumers, who may be willing to use it as a second phone. Sales could be driven by a nostalgia factor, given that the phone has kept a kind of cult status among people who remember how long it lasted compared to today’s iPhones and Samsung Galaxies.

The event will be held on February 26 in Barcelona.
