Could this be our first look at the new Nokia 3310?
The Nokia 3310 is one of the most-loved smartphones of all time.
So rumours of a potential return for the iconic device this week has sent much of the technology world into a nostalgia-fuelled frenzy.
With the original device a major hit thanks to its simplicity, long battery life and incredible durability, any successor will need to be something truly special to replace the original Nokia 3310.
But now it looks like we may have got our first look at what this new device could really look like.
New video footage released by Concept Creator has shown off a first look at how the Nokia 3310 may look upon its release.
The video shows an all-new Nokia 3310 that has received a major technological and hardware boost, but keeps much of the original’s iconic design.
Sporting a classic colourful moulded polycarbonate design that is 14mm thick, the new Nokia 3310 is updated for modern consumers with a number of extra features.
This includes a first-ever rear camera for the device, situated on the rear panel just above the Nokia logo.
The new Nokia 3310 phone would also sport a 1.5in colour screen – a far cry from the original’s two-tone, blocky grey and green display.
There’s also a built-in FM radio, the ability to create your own ringtone, and charging via micro-USB.
The video speculates that the new Nokia 3310 would come with 8GB internal memory and a 1650mAh battery that would provide the much-loved long battery life – between 55 and 235 hours on standby.
As it is only a concept, there’s no news in the video regarding price, release date or specific hardware for the new device, but we could find out all the details sooner than expected.
