Nokia To Re-Release the 3310

JAPAN - FEBRUARY 15:  Launched on the 1st September 2000, the Nokia 3310 featured advanced messaging, personalisation with Xpress-on covers and screensavers, vibra feature, time management functions, voice dialling, picture messaging, predictive text input and games. It also introduced ?mobile chat? using the Nokia Friends-Talk service, which allows users to have conversations using SMS (Short Message Service). This is a globally accepted wireless service that enables the transmission of messages between mobile users and external systems such as e-mail, paging, and voice-mail.  (Photo by SSPL/Getty Images)

Rumours are currently circulating that one of the most popular phones in history is being re-launched at Mobile World Congress this month. Nokia’s 3310 is perhaps the best-loved, and is certainly one of the best selling, phones in history. The leak has come from Evan Blass, who first revealed the details earlier this week.

Blass has made leaked several tech stories to the press in recent years and has often been correct.

Nokia has so far refused to comment on the rumours.

The phone, originally released in 2000, will be sold as a way solving poor battery life in a rugged casing.

The new incarnation of 3310 will be sold for just €59.

Phones made under the Nokia brand are now sold by HMD Global, a Finnish company that bought the rights to the name.
