The phone, first released in 2010, was known for its long battery life as well as its sturdy, almost indestructible body.

None can compare to the 3310. None.

The original version was retired in 2005. According to Nokia, it had sold 126 million units, making it the world’s best-selling phone.

According to a report from leaker Evan Blass, Finnish company HMD Global - who won exclusive rights to produce Nokia phones - will launch a “modern version” of 3310 at the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this month

Sadly, the phone will initially be available only to European and North American consumers and will cost €59 (RM277).

There are no further details about how close the new version will be to the original. But we're hoping the addictive Snake game will make a return!

Aside from the 3310, the company is set to announce four new phones at the event, including the Android-based Nokia 6

The Nokia 6 went on sale exclusively in China late last year for M1699 Chinese yuan (around RM1100).

The Android Nougat phone has a 5.5-inch screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a 16MP rear-facing camera.

The other three handsets tipped to be announced include a mid-tier Nokia 5 and an entry-level Nokia 3.

Netizens have welcome the possible release with enthusiasm:




Fingers crossed for a local release!
