The brand new version of the Nokia 3310, a device that was first released in 2000 and garnered more than 125 million sales, may be re-released into the market very soon.

An anonymous source familiar with the subject told The Indian Express that the new device might be available in India as soon as May at prices lower than 3,000 rupees (US$44).

In 2014, the paper disclosed that the device would run a modified version of Windows Phone 8 and would be equipped with a 3-inch touchscreen, a 41 megapixels PureView rear camera with Zeiss optics and Xenon flash, a dual-core processor, 2GB RAM and 32GB on-board memory.

The phone’s case is set to mimic the weight and size of the original Nokia 3310 and will be available in yellow, blue, red and green. The phone's screen will also come with the same three navigation keys.

Dailysocial.id reported that HMD Global, the Finnish manufacturer that has acquired Nokia’s brand licensing rights, also plans to release other new devices into the Indian market soon, including the Nokia 6, a device currently only available in China.

The announcement of the Indian release date is expected to happen sometime during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in 2017, slated to run between Feb. 17 and March 2.

The company is also likely to introduce a new high-end smartphone, the Nokia 8, as well as two new low-end devices, namely the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5, during the MWC. (mas/kes)
