After all the speculation surrounding the relaunch of the beloved Nokia 3310, it has now been revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The company behind the new version of the phone are HMD Global, a Finnish company who have acquired the rights to the Nokia brand and has many former Nokia employees within their ranks.
The new model looks similar to the original but is slightly thinner and has a colour screen that is also bigger than the originals. Other new additions include an SD card slot, headphone jack, FM radio and a two-megapixel camera.
Fans of the original will be happy to know that some of the most loved features from the Y2K phone are making returns, including a battery life of 30 days when on standby, an updated version of Snake and is said to be fairly durable as well.
The phone is expected to be released in the Summer at around £40. Internet is available on the device but it’s pretty basic at 2.5G and does not include modern smartphone staples such as Whatsapp and Facebook. But, it is only £40, so fair enough.
If you can’t wait for the new version of Snake then don’t forget that you can download Snake II on iOS here. We’re still waiting to hear whether or not you can make songs on composer again though!
