People on the internet rejoiced when Nokia announced that they will bring back Nokia 3310 to the public. But the nostalgic phone will not just compete in the contemporary technology market without upgrading itself.

In a report by GizmoChina, the new Nokia 3310 will have the features and design elements of the original model, securing the retro charm of the phone. The phone has launched 17 years ago.

However, the premium version of the Nokia 3310 would not really look like its old version, The Sun has reported. Techanalysis Reach analyst Bob O'Donnell said that there would be certainly new phones at the Mobile World Congress this week in Barcelona. O'Donnell also said that it would have a larger color display.

"There will certainly be some new phones at MWC, but I'm not really expecting anything dramatically different," O'Donnell said. In Indonesia, it would cost Rs. 1,000.

On the other hand, V Techgraphy wrote in their article that Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 will also be launched at the launch event at the same time. Huawei will lead the competition against Nokia by highlighting their Huawei P10.

This implies that it would be most likely to be a feature phone, especially with all the characteristics that made its previous phone known to everyone. Other exact specifications about the display are not yet revealed, though.

Right now, one can say that the Nokia 6 smartphone are a hit in China. Moreover, the return of Nokia 3310 in the market is also predicted to relive the former glory of the phone.

HMD Global, the Finnish company behind the latest models of Nokia is optimistic that it would cash in on the nostalgia of the people. They added that it could help its new handset have a fair competition with more high-tech offerings from smartphone giants in the contemporary tech industry like Apple and Samsung.
