MWC 2017: The classic Nokia 3310 makes a comeback, along with the much-loved Snake game


17 years after it was originally launched, HMD Global has brought back the 3310″

Nokia recently launched a bunch of Android smartphones at its MWC event, but the star of the show is undoubtedly the iconic Nokia 3310. 17 years after it was originally launched, HMD Global has brought back the legend in a candy bar design coated with peppy colours. 


The new 3310 has been tailored to meet 2017’s standards and comes with a 2.4-inch QVGA polarised curved display which offers better readability in sunlight. The feature phone has a redesigned UI and comes with a 2MP rear facing camera which is aided by a flash. 

The phone also comes with a 1,200mAh removable battery which the company claims offers a standby time for up to a month. There is 16MB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card slot. The iconic Snake game has also returned, and now features slightly enhanced graphics to make the most of 3310’s coloured display. 

For connectivity, the phone comes with support for 2G and Bluetooth 3.0. The handset will be available in four colours namely

Warm Red and Yellow, which sport a glossy finish, and Dark Blue and Grey which come with a matte finish. Interested buyers will have to shell out €49 (Rs 3,500) for the device when it hits the markets.
