The Nokia Phone From The Early ’00s Is Making A Big Comeback!!

“The grandmaster of gaming and good old snakes is back!!!”

We have the fondest memories of Nokia phones. The sort-of cumbersome, brick-like phones were uncomplicated and indestructible.

And if you, too, feel nostalgic about playing “Snake” on your phone, then Finnish manufacturer HMD Global Oy has great news for you: It’s releasing an updated version of the Nokia 3310.

The company acquired “exclusive rights to market phones under the storied Nokia brand” and plans to announce four phones at the Mobile World Congress, which kicks off Feb. 26 in Barcelona, Spain, according to Venture Beat.

A modern version of the Nokia 3310, which launched roughly 17 years ago and was taken off the market in 2005, will be released for a mere €59 (about $62.61). There’s no word yet on how, exactly, the new 3310 will be different from the old one.

Regardless, people are excited for the phone to make a comeback:
