Nokia 3310, the iconic mobile phone whose battery life was the stuff of legend, is back. Really. The model will rise from its ashes at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona #mobilemagic
After more than a decade, the Nokia 3310 is ready to face the brand new world of smartphones. The mobile phone will be officially unveiled at MWC 2017, this month in Spain, according to Evan Blass (also known as EvLeaks). Blass believes HMD Global, the manufacturer that has exclusivity on the Nokia brand, will do more than tweak the original feature phone. He mentions a modern version of the popular mobile phone of the 2000s that still retains the things that made it so famous: nearly indestructible build and long battery life.
Besides the announced Nokia 6 , Blass confirms the launch of two other smartphones, the Nokia 3 and 5 with reduced display size, RAM and image sensor. Nokia 5, for instance, is rumored to feature a 5.2 inch screen at 720p, 2GB of RAM and a 12 megapixels rear camera.
The downsize in hardware will be felt in the price difference, too. Nokia 6 is likely to be sold at €249 ($264), while Nokia 5 will be priced at €199 ($211). As for the king of feature phones, Nokia 3310, this should come at €59 ($62).
If you’re excited about this surprising comeback, make sure you tune in this Sunday, when Nokia will hold its press event from 4.30PM local time (10.30AM EST).
