Nokia 3310, the sturdy, durable and economical phone loved by many, is set to make a return in a matter of weeks.

Originally released in 2000 during the early era of mobile phones, Nokia 3310 will return with its known reliable qualities and brand new features.

The new Nokia 3310 will be sold for a little under $30 (approximately N15,000).

The phone will be made public at mobile world congress later this month, according to leaker Evan Blass who first revealed the details.

The phone comes with built-in Opera Mini Browser and Facebook Messenger.

 

It is also compatible with several social media applications.

The new Nokia 3310 has a 0.3-megapixel camera, a radio and a torch among its features.

It has a battery that can last as long as 29 days on standby.

The built-in apps can work without a 3G connection.

Production for Nokia 3310, the original, was stopped in 2005.

After selling an estimated 126 million units, it is regarded as the best-selling phone in the world.

Nokia struggled to bring its brand into the smartphone era and ended up being sold to Microsoft.

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