One of the world’s most iconic smartphones is rumoured to be making a comeback later this year.
HMB Global, owners of the Nokia brand name, are expected to unveil four new Nokia handsets at Mobile World Congress.
The most interesting of which is rumoured to be a “modern version” of the Nokia 3310, although there is no word yet on what it may look like or specifications.
Originally released in 2000, the Nokia 3310 was one of the most successful phones Nokia ever produced and would go onto sell more than 100 million units. It gained its reputation for its seemingly never ending battery life and durability.
The news comes from serial tech tipster Evan Blass who says Nokia will also use MWC 2017 to unveil the new Android powered Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 smartphones.
HMD Global debuted the Nokia 6 in January but only made it available to buy in China, where it proved a huge success, selling out almost immediately.
The Nokia 6 includes a full 5.5 inch full HD 1080p display, with a Snapdragon 430 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It also runs Android 7.0 Nougat and comes with a front facing fingerprint scanner and 16MP/8MP cameras.
HMD Global is now expected to announce that it will make the Nokia 6 available in other regions, while also releasing lower spec versions called the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3.
MWC 2017 kicks off on February 27.
