The Nokia 3310 has not yet said its last word and will soon return to the stalls. According to VentureBeat the phone that marked the past decade will be announced at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) to be held in Barcelona at the end of February. It is rumoured that the Nokia 3310 will cost 59 Euros (roughly £50).
Apparently, there have been no changes to the 3310 by HMD, the company that now produces Nokia phones. Therefore, the manufacturer will play on its formidable autonomy and its exceptional resistance.

In addition to the 3310, Nokia will also announce it’s latest smartphones, the Nokia 3, 5 and 6. The big news is that all three smartphones will run on Android (Nougat 7.0) which is a first for Nokia phones.
In fact, the Nokia 6 was already launched in China at the beginning of January. The device features a 5.5-inch HD screen, a Snapdragon 430 processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB storage capacity and a 16-megapixel camera.
However, the good old Nokia 3310 can still shade the competition; by playing on the nostalgia of customers, the manufacturer could make good sales. If you had one of these you will remember the simplicity and reliability of the 3310.
Although the features and photos of the reborn phone have not yet been revealed, fans of the Nokia 3310 hope that the device will inherit the best aspects of its illustrious predecessor: a battery with a large capacity, a shockproof enclosure and of course a reasonable price.
It should be noted that when it was introduced to the market in 2000, the Nokia 3310 had a range of 55 to 260 hours in stand-by mode and 2h30 to 4h30 talk time. The battery was also removable. The good old times.
