According to reputed tech website VentureBeat, Nokia 3310 is set to be re-launched at this year’s Mobile World Congress, which is the largest conference in the mobile industry and takes part between February 27 and March 3. The information was acquired by notorious tech news leaker and VentureBeat writer Evan Blass, and it supposedly comes from an HMD Global employee who was recently briefed on the topic. HDM Global is the owner of Nokia since May 2016, and apparently, they’ve been planning the return of 3310 for quite some time now.
For those of you who are not familiar with the phone, Nokia 3310 was probably one of the most popular devices of the early 2000s. We don’t know if HDM Global intends to switch anything up, but if the battery will be able to last 160 hours in standby mode, and the chassis will be as tough as it used to be (almost indestructible), then we’re sold. Especially for 59 euros.
