If you’re one of those who enjoys music from the late 90s, and remembers the old days of white and black displays alongwith Snake game and Bounce too, then the rumour of Nokia 3310 being reprised will certainly hit you like the sweet summer wind.
According to one of the most trusted mobile phone leaker and VentureBeat reporter, Evan Blake, HMD is all set to relaunch the sturdy Nokia 3310 model from yesteryears.
The device, launched in 2000, was well received by users worldwide and later on became the Chuck Norris of the mobile world.
The Nokia 3310 was known for its long (read: never ending) battery life and rock-solid design which was literally unbreakable is all set to make a comeback at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, later this month.
The device, which previously sported a modest 900mAh battery, will surely come with an array of upgrades to its hardware as well as software updates to fit competitively in the feature phone market in the present era.
The Nokia 3310 will reportedly cost €59 (Rs. 4,166) in the European market, with the price being downgraded to the Rs.2000 – Rs.3000 bracket for the Indian market, in a bid to attract more customers — as there is only so much that nostalgia can make people do and be paying Rs.4000 for a feature phone, is something that they won’t.
The device will be targeted towards developing countries in the Indian sub-continent as well as Africa, where feature phones are still being used by the masses as not everyone can afford to shell out thousands for smartphones.
