Nokia... The phone we all know that can break that can break through concrete, fly through storms, and survive the zombie apocalypse!
Every phone we have had since then still makes us think about our old nokias 3310 which are still safely tucked away inside our bedside drawers. Well... at least that's true in my case. So you can image the excitement and shock we felt when we saw this announcement.
It was launched in 2000 by then-gigantic Finnish phone maker Nokia, the 3310 was compact, sturdy, reliable and its battery lasted forever. Now, according to a report by reliable leaker of all things mobile, Evan Blass, the Nokia 3310 is poised for a triumphant return.
It appears the HMD Global Oy, the Finnish manufacturer that bought the rights to market phones under the Nokia brand from Microsoft, will launch a "modern version" of 3310 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this month.More precisely, the phone will be launched Feb. 26, when HMD has scheduled an event in Barcelona, and the new Nokia 3310 will cost a mere €59 ($63). Other than that, we know nothing - but we definitely hope this 3310 reboot will include the legendary game from the original phone, Snake.
HMD will launch a couple of smartphones as well, Blass claims: Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. The 5.2-inch Nokia 5 will have 2GB of RAM and a 12-megapixel camera, and it will retail for €199 ($211). There are no details about the entry-level Nokia 3 except that it will cost €149 ($158), and both phones will run on Android 7, according to the report.
The company will also showcase the already launched Nokia 6, which has so far only been available in China.
We can’t wait to see what the newer and modern mobile will bring to today’s world. Would you be willing to try it?
