Finnish brand Nokia, a former mobile star, launched three new Android smartphones and unveiled a revamped version of its iconic 3310 model more than a decade after it was phased out.
Unlike the original, which was known for its sturdiness, the new Nokia 3310 will allow web browsing.
The new version will bring back its predecessor’s popular “Snake” game and distinctive ringtones, said Arto Nummela, the head of Finnish start-up HMD Global which will produce the phone under a licensing agreement with Nokia
Nokia was the world’s top mobile maker between 1998 and 2011 but was overtaken by South Korean rival Samsung after failing to respond to the rapid rise of smartphones.
Its telephone brand remains widely recognised, especially in developing markets.
