Taragis, it’s back! the Nokia 3310 — a once beloved phone model 17 years ago has relaunched as a new, colorful phone for sale by HMD Global.

The new Nokia 3310 features a design that draws heavily from that of the original 3310; it comes with a full set of physical buttons. Just like it’s famous predecessor, it promises durability and long battery life, according to its makers, it boasts 22 hours of talk time and an incredible one month standby time, per charge.

The phone has a slightly bigger screen than its namesake, and in color this time. It also has a 2megapixel camera on the back, which the original did not. It does have a removable back cover and battery.

And yes, it has a Snake game, and though the phone now supports microSD storage of up to 32GB and can play MP3s, there is not much else you can do on the phone other than makes calls, send texts and maybe surf the web a little bit. It only runs on Nokia’s new Series 30+ software, rather than Android and has 2G internet speed.

  • 2.4inc curved window with polarized layer for better readability in sunlight
