The Nokia 3310 is about to be unveiled and this is what we know so far

The iconic Nokia 3310 is being relaunched and could be on shelves as early as this weekend, according to the latest reports.

The old blockia is getting a modern remake and will be available for nostalgic shoppers to purchase in the coming weeks.

It's expected that the 2017 version will be lighter than the last model (released in 2000 - 17 YEARS AGO and purchased by no less than 126million people worldwide).

The question was; how much would the new version of the phone cost? Can you put a price on ultra reliability, a tiny screen, years (not true) of battery life and the guarantee that you could run it over in your car and it would still be in perfect (not true) working order?

According to VentureBeat, which first reported on the phone's relaunch, the phone will retail for customers at €59. So it will be at an affordable price.

The 3310 is reported to be one of four Nokia handsets the Finnish company HMD Global is expected to unveil at the Mobile World Congress this weekend.

Will you be buying it?
