As what Luna Lovegood, a character from the notable Harry Potter series written by J.K. Rowling once said, “Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.”
Smartphones have eventually became a necessity to most people ever since it started to invade the market. While most Android devices today are equipped with a wide range of functionalities and capabilities, a turndown most of them have in common is their short battery life. This is one of the situations when we remember the great old Nokia phones which has a stamina that lasts up to a week, even with a single charge.
You now might have the idea on why we quoted Lovegood at the beginning of this post. This is no end, though, as Nokia is just starting to revamp its name after being acquired by Finnish company, HMD Global, by bringing back one of their classic basic smartphone, the phone that we all once loved — the Nokia 3310.
The online clamor about the comeback of a revised version of the Nokia 3310 started due to a tweet posted by Mobile Reporter and tech news leaker, Evan Blass, which reads, “HMD Global will launch the Nokia 3, 5 and 6 at MWC, plus a 3310 homage.”
Known for its long battery life and sturdy built, the Nokia 3310 was launched last September 2000. Its altered version will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2017 which is scheduled on February 27 – March 2 in Barcelona, Spain, along with three new Nokia Android handsets – the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6.
