New Nokia 3310 release date is HERE (and yes, it comes with Snake preinstalled)

The Nokia 3310 is back!


Nokia unveiled its reimagining of the modern classic on-stage today during its press conference at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow, in Barcelona.

According to Nokia, the refreshed 3310 is “thin, light and incredibly durable”.

The Nokia 3310, which first went on-sale in September 2000, achieved its iconic status thanks to its impressive battery life and durable hardware.

The mobile went on to become one of the biggest-selling devices of all time.

Although, it is still possible to buy an original Nokia 3310 on Amazon, the handset is being sold on the marketplace – not by the company itself.


But that’s all about to change, Nokia has confirmed.

The new Nokia 3310 ships with Snake preinstalled, as well as a full-colour display.

Thankfully, the new Nokia 3310 still retains many of the features that made the original such a bestseller.

For example, the 2017 Nokia 3310 ships with an incredible 22-hour talk-time and month long stand-by battery life.


The new Nokia 3310 is available in four finishes – Warm Red and Yellow, both with a gloss finish, and Dark Blue and Grey both with a matte finish.

Nokia claims the refreshed Nokia 3310 will sell at an average global retail price of €49, some £41 converted. will be putting the Nokia 3310 through its paces next week, and will bring you our detailed thoughts about the nostalgic new launch.
