What's old is new again, apparently. Amidst all this news about wireless charging on an iPhone and a bendable display from Samsung, Nokia is set to kick it old school at MWC 2017 in Barcelona. That's because we're about to see the effective relaunch of the classic Nokia 3310. Ready for some Snake?

As reported by Evan @evleaks Blass at VentureBeat, a total of four Nokia phones will be presented at the upcoming tech show later this month. As you might recall, these Nokia phones aren't being made or marketed by Nokia itself; this is the handiwork of HMD Global, the company that owns the rights to sell Nokia-branded devices.

We already know about the Nokia 6, since that's already available in China and will hit the European market at around €249. We can also expect to see cheaper variants, appropriately named the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 3. The former will reportedly get a 5.2-inch 720p display, 12MP camera and 2GB of RAM for about €199. The Nokia 3 should list around €149.


But the biggest news here is the return of the classic. We're expecting "a modern version of a classic workhorse of a feature phone." It may or may not carry the Nokia 3310 name, but the €59 retro handset might appeal to the more nostalgic among us. All shall be confirmed at HMD Global's event at MWC on February 26.
