Nokia's next classic remake is likely to be the Nokia 2010, according to reports. 

The Finnish company in 2016 returned to producing Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets after signing a deal with Helsinki-based business HMD, including creating an annual Classics line, which consists of revamped versions of old devices. 

As reported by kompas.com, the iconic Nokia 2010 is likely to be the next in the Classics line. First launched in 1994, its return is slated for 2019, marking the 25th anniversary of the phone.

The revamped version will feature a slightly updated design, as well as modifications such as 4G LTE connectivity and a color screen, according to Android Authority

The device is expected to run on the same operating system as the rest of the Classics range, which includes the iconic Nokia 3310 and this year's release of the Banana phone 8110.

Other new features on the 2010 revamp could also include support for apps such as WhatsApp and Facebook, enabled through a new partnership between HMD and Facebook. 

The device will also be renamed Nokia A10 and will be released in several colors, including black, red and yellow. It is set to launch in the same market segment as the Banana phone. (liz/kes)
