After 17 Years Nokia Is Re-Launching The 3310, World’s Most Beloved Phone

In the year 2000, Nokia has released the 3310, a phone that changed the whole mobile phone industry. And now, 17 years later, they are re-launching it!

According to the leak by Evan Blass, it will cost €59 (around $62) and will be revealed among Nokia’s new smartphones during the Mobile World Congress on February 26th. It remains to be seen whether we’ll get the exact same phone or it’s going to feature some new functionality.

The company’s legendary phone became user favorite and an internet meme for its ruggedness and seemingly endless battery life. But when other companies moved to touchscreens, Nokia’s struggle has started. Hopefully, Nokia 3310 will put an end to it once again. (h/t: demilked)

Still using mine once in a while if my socalled smartphone dies again or has a split screen. The Nokia is 16 years old, ans while battery life isnt too good anymore)(1day) quality of speech is way better than and smartphones i ever owned.
