Nokia is reportedly planning a relaunch of the iconic 3310 later this month
Reports said that a relaunch of the brick-like phone is planned for the end of this month (February).
The Nokia 3310, first launched 17 years ago, has achieved cult status — it was extremely hardy, with a great battery and a now-iconic design.
HMD Global, the Finnish company that now makes Nokia phones, is reportedly preparing to launch a “modern version” of the 3310 ahead of Mobile World Congress, a mobile industry conference to be held in Barcelona, Spain, on February 26.
It sounds as if the new 3310 will riff on the original, rather than being a perfect reproduction.
The report added that the retail price for 3310 will be around €59 ($63, or £50) in Europe.
It’s not clear when or whether it’ll launch elsewhere.
