The Nokia 3310, the phone renowned as strong as Chuck Norris, is definitely relaunching this year.
The iconic handset has been regarded as one of the most-loved and reliable handsets in history. It’s presence has been immortalized these days as a meme and now the world waits for its ressurection.
Nokia 3310 was first released last 2000. It was the most recognizable cellphones that time due to its long battery life and great durability.
The would-be relaunched phone is said to be upgraded in terms of specs like those sold by HMD Global, a company in Finland who have the rights to the Nokia brand. Colored screens along with higher memory capacity and USB connection are among the specs that will be expected.
The new Nokia 3310 will be sold at €59 EUR ($62.67 USD/ 3,129.94 PhP). Additional details of the device will be released soon.
For now, tech enthusiasts are speculating on the result of Nokia 3310’s comeback.
The old Nokia 3310 is still available at online shops like Amazon.
Nokia believes that a nostalgia strategy will bring the phone giant back to the spotlight. Old features such as calculator, clock, and games are one of the precursors of the concept of having a single device to perform many functions. All four of the games in Nokia 3310 — Snake II, Pairs II, Space Impact, and Bantumi — have been deemed memorable by those who lived at the start of the 21st century.
Unfortunately, Nokia was not able to catch up on the smartphone race. Even after the acquisition of the brand to Microsoft, the Lumia series is not even very successful to par against the leading competitors. Hopefully, Nokia will rise up again with its throwback appeal.
