The iconic mobile phone, the Nokia 3310, which was vastly popular back in 2000, is set to hit the market again in the second quarter of this year.
The phone isn’t making a comeback to compete in the smartphone market, but rather to be the go-to phone for people who can’t afford modern smartphone. It’s also positioning itself as the perfect first mobile phone for kids or a second phone that people can use in case of emergency.
The modern handset is lighter and more colourful, coming in red, yellow, blue and gray. It features a colour screen, 2-megapixel camera, microSD slot and the Opera Mini browser for basic web surfing. Battery life continues to be its biggest selling point, with 22 hours of talk time and a full month on standby. It also features a revamped version of the popular game Snake.
The phone will cost $50 (about R650).
