Remember the Nokia 3310? They don’t make them like that anymore, except they do as the classic phone from the year 2000 has been rebooted and yes it’s bringing snake along too.
After a few lean years Nokia has been relaunched and looks to the past with this stylish reinvention of a much-loved phone from the early days of mobiles. The original 3310 iconic design is updated with smooth lines and rounded corners and it’s also much thinner than the original.

Old school Nokia fans will be pleased to see the 3310 in new design, it comes with the familiar midnight blue or gray or you can choose from these very very bright new colors. Of course this is no high powered smartphone. The new 3310 has a color screen and can just about browse the web very slowly. But that’s about as modern as it gets with a measly two mega-pixel camera and low resolution screen is designed as a simple backup phone for families or festival phone that won’t embarrass you in your Instagrams.
Luckily the price reflects the phone simplicity, costing just $62, also on board is the infamously difficult game “snake”. Although that too has been given a colorful update. A modern version of Nokia 3310 was displayed at MWC

It’s a tiny feature phone that makes phone calls and doesn’t do much else. Presumably long battery life reflect with such advice do well in a world where smartphone are the standard if you are out of the loop.
The update of the 3310 is designed to show the world that HMD knows what made Nokia phones good and it’s honoring it’s past.
