VIDEOS: The 2017 version of Nokia 3310 announced

It was widely speculated that the Nokia 3310 would be launched in the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain on February 27. It looks like HMD, the company behind the manufacturing of the sturdy phone is a day early in showing it to the public.

Some tech bloggers and reviewers have already got their hands on the 2017 version of Nokia 3310.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about this plan of resurrecting Nokia 3310, but I posted the wrong “leaked” photo which I now replaced it with the correct one.

The original Nokia 3310 was launched in 2000, and has sold more than 126 million units. It became famous for its durability and long battery life. Some even call it the “brick” because it could physically withstand accidental drops.

This latest Nokia 3310 has both outside and inside enhancements to keep up with the latest trend in phone technology. It is now slightly thinner, but still keep the traditional keypads. And yes, it still has the famous Snake game, but a bit improved.

There is no wifi though, a bummer.
