Nokia will re-launch its popular 3310 mobile phone, which has been described as the best-loved and most resilient phone in history.
According to leaker Evan Blass, who first revealed the details, it will be revealed at Mobile World Congress later this month.
Blass says HMD Global Oy, the Finnish manufacturer with exclusive rights to market phones under the storied Nokia brand
Blass who said Nokia will be releasing 3 other smartphones at the congress scheduled to hold in Barcelona, adding that “perhaps the most interesting of these devices, at least from the perspective of mobile enthusiasts, is not a smartphone at all, but a modern version of a classic workhorse of a feature phone, the Nokia 3310. Known primarily for its plentiful battery life and nearly indestructible build, the 3310 was released at the turn of the millennium as a replacement to the also-popular 3210.”
“At just €59, this new incarnation seems priced competitively enough to win over nostalgic former owners for use as a second phone. HMD is holding its launch event on February 26 in Barcelona. It’s explicitly targeting the European marketplace, while distribution plans for other regions — namely North America — weren’t immediately known,” Blass said.
