Nokia has resurrected the iconic Nokia 3310 phone, one of the best-selling feature phones of all time.
The phone was launched along three other new phones—the new Nokia 6, Nokia, 5, and Nokia 3.
The new range of Nokia smartphones, launched by Nokia licensee HMD Global at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, all run Android Nougat and will all feature Google Assistant.
“What HMD has created is remarkable. We’re excited to see the launch of a new family of smartphones, built to the standards that Nokia is known for,” says Brad Rodrigues, interim President of Nokia Technologies. “We believe that their strong design and quality will appeal to Nokia fans around the world, and the return of the Nokia 3310 has us smiling too!”
It was also announced that the world-renowned game Snake will be snaking its way back into people’s hearts with a new version available to play on Messenger, part of Facebook’s Instant Games cross platform experience. The new free Snake game is designed to be played with groups of friends.
Boasting 22-hour talk-time and month long stand-by, the Nokia 3310’s fresh, colourful, modern design brings it bang up to date.
The Nokia 3310 is available in four distinctive colours – Warm Red and Yellow, both with a gloss finish, and Dark Blue and Grey both with a matte finish. The Nokia 3310 will retail at an average global retail price of €49.
“For the Nokia 3310 we just couldn’t resist. We wanted to reward loyal Nokia phone fans and make a statement that rich heritage, innovation and modern design can go hand-in-hand. Fundamentally, it is about making sure that right across our portfolio we are delivering this pure Nokia experience,” says Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global.
