The new Nokia feature phone is all about the past. 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. That sounds a lot like the original, but that's where the similarities end.

The Nokia 3 comes with a 5 inch IPS display with a HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and the device features a quad core MediaTek 6737 1.3GHz processor and 2GB of RAM.

Best of all: It has Snake! But the "new" 3310 isn't a smartphone as such, and is instead labelled as a 'feature phone, ' one result being much more limited internet connectivity.

The new and improved model will be available in four colours; Warm Red and Yellow, both with a gloss finish, and Dark Blue and Grey both with a matte finish.

We had recently reported that the Finnish company is planning to re-launch a "modern version" of the legendary and unbreakable Nokia 3310 in the upcoming MWC 2017 in Barcelona. It also comes with the old Snake game and would be sold in summer with a single and dual SIM edition.

Nokia 3310 is the biggest event at the Mobile World Congress. HMD Global, the people behind the new Nokia 3310, brought back a classic that analysts are positive about. This also means that the phone can't be used, as some were hoping, as a 4G hotspot.

The reveal of the modern Nokia 3310 left many with a bitter taste due to the phone's modified design. I doubt it as it is 2017 and it is the time of 4G and smartphones. Expect countless durability test videos when the device is released in Q2 (April-June) this year for 49 euros, or around $52 U.S.

Some of its specs are laughable compared to today's standards - take for example the 2-megapixel rear camera.
