Nokia 3310 set to make comeback


The Nokia 3310, one of most iconic gadgets of the 21st century, is making a comeback, with a new version of the nigh-on indestructible, indefatigable handset due to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.

Renowned mobile tipster Evan Blass says he’s got the inside line from an anonymous source close to HMD Global, the company that has licensed the Nokia name and is bringing it back after years in the wilderness.

What else is due to arrive at MWC? We round up the five phones you should really look out for in our guide.

Word is that the new Nokia 3310 will be much like the original: a feature phone that can withstand myriad bumps and scrapes, offers basic call and text functionality and can last for the best part of a week on a single charge.

Best of all, HMD is planning on selling the phone for just €59 (£50) SIM–free, making it a no-brainer for nostalgic tech fans and those pining for the days when phones were simpler.

Blass says HMD will use MWC to unveil three other Nokia phones, the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6, each one running a version of Google Android.

The expo is also expected to give us our first glimpse of the Samsung Galaxy S8, as well as the LG G6 and Sony Yoshino.
