The redesigned Nokia 3310 will go on sale in the UK on 24th May, priced just £49.99 SIM–free.
The release date comes almost three months after Nokia owner HMD Global unveiled the handset at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
What's the new Nokia 3310 got to offer? Here's five key things you need to know.
The phone is a retread of one of the early 21st century’s most defining gadgets.
While it retains much of the same look and feel as the original model, the new Nokia 3310 features a colour screen, two-megapixel camera and an updated version of the classic Snake game.
The big draw, however, is its battery life. HMD says the Nokia 3310 can last for up to 31 days on standby, with 22 hours of talk time, meaning it won’t need to be charged constantly like every major smartphone.
The Nokia 3310 will be available from Carphone Warehouse, Vodafone and EE. O2 and Three have said they won’t sell the device.
The question is whether the 3310's novelty appeal will translate into sales.
But at a time when constant notifications and poor battery life make smartphones inconvenient, such a scenario doesn’t appear far–fetched.
