Nokia has re-released its classic 3310 model 17 years after it was first launched.
The iconic handset was a massive hit with users back in 2000 and now the mobile phone giant is relaunching it with a month-long battery, 22 hours of talk-time, and even its popular game, snake.
The 3310, with a slick new look that pays homage to its original design, was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain over the weekend.
While the handset looks similar to its predecessor, Nokia has brought its new model up to date and instead of the original display, a monochrome 84 x 84, it has a colour screen.
However, it has limited internet capabilities, relying on 2.5G connectivity, with users browsing at speeds slower than if they were using 3G.
It also has a single camera which has just two megapixels.
The phone, which sold 126million handsets until it was phased out in 2005, will be sold by Finish company HMD Global.
Nokia 3310’s features like long battery life, durability, and the addictive game Snake – made it a favourite in it’s time of reign.
The new phone which will costs $52 is likely to be made available in the second quarter of 2017.
