Rumors are circulating in some quarters that the leading technology company Nokia is about to re-introduce its popular mobile phone model Nokia 3310 in the market.
For mobile phone users of a certain age, the prospect of a return to this robust phone is a source of great joy.
If you were looking to buy a cell phone in 2000, the 3310 would probably be on your list of favorite phones.
However, when the BBC’s Newsbeat contacted Nokia, the company declined to comment.
A company spokesman said: “We are very pleased with this information, but as we have said in the past, we do not express our views on rumors or speculation.
The return of the 17-year-old Nokia 3310, known for its Snack game in the world of iPhones and Android phones, seems unexpected, but experts say it could be in demand in the market.
Alastair Charlton, the night editor of iTimes Technology, told the NewsBeat team: “I’m sure my grandmother would be able to use this phone while she wouldn’t even know where the iPhone or Android phone originated. Have.’
You can take your 20 phones to a fair and leave your expensive phone with a glass screen at home. Backpackers and people like them may also like this phone because of its robustness, low cost, and long-lasting battery.
Many smartphone users complain about the battery life of their mobile phones and this could be a significant achievement for the 3310.
“People’s interest in the 3310 shows that the battery is still the most important factor for many consumers,” said Elizabeth Warley, CEO of a technology company called TechHub.
Alastair Charlton added that the first venturer to announce the return of the 3310 was Avon Blas, a credible figure in the leaked news in the technology industry and that most of his predictions came true.
However, he says that in order to be successful in today’s market, Nokia will have to innovate the features of the 3310. “If it has access to things like WhatsApp, Facebook, maybe it can make the place.”
