Phones made under the Nokia brand are now sold by HMD Global, a Finnish company that bought the rights to the name and they will re-launch the 3310.
The 3310—first released in the year 2000—was one of the best selling phones ever, and the cheap, durable candy bar phone was one of the models that gave Nokia its reputation for durable, unkillable phones.
The phone will be launched Feb. 26, when HMD has scheduled an event in Barcelona, and the new Nokia 3310 will cost a mere €59 ($63).
HMD Global is also launching several other Android devices at MWC this year. The Nokia 6 (5.5-inch display, 1080p, Snapdragon 430, 4GB of RAM), the Nokia 5 (5.2-inch display, 720p, Snapdragon 430 and 2GB of RAM) and the Nokia 3 — a device we don’t know much about yet, but that Nokia plans to sell for €149 (roughly $158). The company is hoping that these low-end devices will spur demand for its products, helping it re-enter the phone market after disastrous business decisions and Microsoft’s buyout effectively killed its product lines.
