Nokia 3310: Here's What you Need to Know about the New/Old Phone | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

Nokia made a seemingly easy move by bringing back a modified Nokia 3310 which sold over 126 million units since it was first introduced back in September, 2000. 

It was a beloved phone especially popular for its Long lasting Battery, its ruggedness and most importantly, for Snake.

I kid, but it was a huge part of what made it fun and Nokia were nice enough (smart enough) to add that to its list of features.

While it's still the Nokia 3310, it's not without its changes (Seeing as they're with HMD now), the new/old phone runs on Nokia’s Series 30+ software, with a 2.4-inch QVGA display, a 2-megapixel camera, and even a microSD slot.

In the world of the iPhones and the powerful Samsungs, these are fairly plain features but perhaps that's exactly what Nokia wants, it was what made the original 3310 such a joy to begin with.

With some design touch up-- the modern variant is a little smaller, thinner, and lighter all round-- It's added some modern beauty to this antique.

It’s also a lot more colorful this time around, with glossy yellow and red colors, and matte grey and dark blue models. It’s instantly recognisable as a Nokia, and HMD has even included a modern Snake game on the handset just to play on the nostalgia.

For internet it comes with Opera Mini, but the real selling point is battery life. Just like most feature phones, standby time on the Nokia 3310 is 31 days, alongside a talk time of 22 hours. That’s a massive amount of battery life, but as the phone is so basic you’re hardly going to be wasting battery away on Snapchat or Facebook.

Price wise, the Nokia 3310 is also going to be affordable with HMD planning to make the phone available in Q2 this year for around $52 (about N17,000)

So are you going to be getting one?
