Most networks are shutting down 2G frequencies gradually, which means the new Nokia 3310 won't work for a large audience in its targeted markets as well in the future.
HMD Global, the company now offering mobile phones under the Nokia banner, at the ongoing GSMA Mobile World Congress holding in Barcelona, Spain has announced a "new generation of Nokia smartphones", as well as "the return of a modern classic" at the ongoing GSMA Mobile World Congress holding in Barcelona, Spain.
The 2017 Nokia 3310's battery life is 10 times more than the original. The re-released device will reportedly have "22 hours of talk time with a one-month battery life on standby" and, yes, Snake will be back as well, according to Wired. It states that the company is in plans to manufacturer these phones via Foxconn in India. It is released with a price tag of Euro 49 (approximately Rs. 3,500). The Nokia 3 will be available in Blue, Silver, Matte Black, and Copper colour variants.
The feature phone is considered to be one of Nokias best selling phones produced ever.
The new 3310 is positioned as a back-up phone for the smartphone generation.
The old Nokia 3310 weighs around 133 grams, while the new one cuts that number nearly in half - it weighs 79.6 grams. The company has also included its iconic snake game with a twist.

Australia paceman Mitchell Starc earlier ripped through India's top order with two wickets in three balls. If you get bowled out within 11 runs and lose seven wickets , you don't deserve to win a Test match.
Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, Juho Sarvikas said: "Nokia phones stir real emotions; people know them for their attractive design and craftsmanship, together with a built-to-last quality that you can rely on".
Alongside the revamped Nokia 3310, HMD Global also debuted a number of other smartphones. HMD is planning to spend some 400 million euros to market the Nokia brand for the next three years.
"Say, something like "offers for parents to gift a Nokia smartphone to their children" to pass on the trust to the next generation", Kawoosa suggested.
Elsewhere, Nokia also debuted the Nokia 3.
Both the cameras on the Nokia 3 are 8-megapixel sensors with f/2.0 apertures, though it seems Nokia is aiming it more at those who take more selfies than landscapes. It feature a 5.2-inch screen having HD (1280x720p) resolution and come with 1.3GHz MediaTek (MTK 6737) quad-core SoC (System-on-Chip) backed by 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box.
