From the past two weeks or so, the internet is completely buzzed with the news about the comeback of the iconic Nokia 3310 smartphone. HMD Global, the parent company of Nokia, is planning to announce the phone at the MWC 2017, which is just a day away from now.

There was nothing when the actual news about the Nokia 3310 broke out, but the internet is now filled with various leaks suggesting the design and specs of the phone. The famous and reliable tipster, Evan Blass, yesterday gave some details of the upcoming phone. According to Blass, the Nokia 3310 will run the trademark Nokia’s Symbian OS, and the version would be S30+.

He further stated that the design of the Nokia 3310 (2017) version would be in-line with the old Nokia 3310 and the recently announced Nokia 150 feature phone. One of the most prominent features of the Nokia 3310 was the swappable faceplates, and Blass claims that the new Nokia 3310 would retain this feature. Also, the phone will be made available in multiple colours.

Furthermore, a leak also revealed an image of the phone, and it showed that the phone will take design cues from the Nokia 150 and will retain the Oval shape. The original Nokia 3310 was released way back in the year 2000 and massively impressed with its sturdy build quality. But, the new and upcoming Nokia 3310 will feature massive design changes, which might trim the build quality of the phone and yeah, Nokia is in different hands now.

Not only the Nokia 3310, but HMD Global will also introduce a couple of other Nokia phones as well- Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 with entry-level and mid-range specifications respectively. Moreover, a new rumour suggested that the company won’t be announcing any flagship phone at the MWC 2017 mega tech show. Instead, HMD is planning to announce the phone at a special event after the conclusion of MWC 2017.

All said, a little two weeks ago, the return of 17-year-old Nokia 3310 was touted as a fool’s errand. As time passed on, the news became absolute, and we’re now looking forward to the Nokia’s announcement of Nokia 3310 tomorrow at the MWC 2017.

It’s such a shame that after existing for roughly 20 years tech sites still don’t know what Symbian is. S30, S30+ and S40 are not, never were and never will be Symbian based. Symbian was (is?) an OS for smartphones and not feature phones like the original and new 3310.
