As was rumoured earlier this month, the Nokia 3310 will be returning to the market with a new modern version.

Unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2017 during HMD Global’s press conference, it builds upon what we got with the original 3310 that was launched in 2000, but with some much smarter specifications.

But it has still been designed to be a basic smartphone.

The new Nokia 3310 is rather slim at 12.8mm, with softer and curvier angular corners, but the overall design of the phone is pretty much the same with a screen at the top half and a T9 keyboard at the bottom of the phone.

Along with the change in design, Nokia also updated the display to a 2,40-inch 240 x 320-pixel resolution colour display, that updates the phone massively.

They also updated the preloaded Snake game, which is actually quite sad because it has become extremely modern, removing the pull of Snake in our opinion.

Elsewhere on the phone, you will find a dual-band 2.5G connection, Bluetooth support, a 3.5mm headphone socket and a microSD card slot.

There’s also a 2-megapixel camera on the back.

It’s a phone that has been designed to bring you back to basics with only the essential functions, and at just €49, it might be a pretty good option for a burner phone or just something that you don’t have to worry about on your commute.
