The Nokia 3310, perhaps the most beloved and resilient phone in history, will reportedly be relaunched later this year.
The practically indestructible phone, which was originally released back in 2000, will be sold for just €59 ($63), and will most likely be pitched as a second backup phone for people who still romanticize the days of playing Snake and making custom ringtones.
It will be revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February 27 ahead of a full rollout later in the year, according to data obtained by the reliable Evan ‘EvLeaks’ Blass of VentureBeat.
Nokia hasn’t manufactured the 3310 in many years, but you can still purchase one on Amazon for a similar price — though only through its marketplace and not directly from the company itself. Features listed include a clock, calculator, the ability to store up to 10 reminders, and four games: Snake II, Pairs II, Space Impact and Bantumi.
Stay tuned for more information.
If really need more convincing after staring at that beauty above, here are a load of other reasons why you should revert to a dumbphone.
