Nokia 3310 will re-launch with color display


We may have a few more details about what the new version of Nokia's classic 3310 will look like. The handset will ship with a color display and have feature phone capabilities, according to information from Chinese site Vtech, which claims to have leaked information about the upcoming handset, reports Mashable. The original 3310 was released in 2000, back when people were still burning CDs and loading up Microsoft Encarta.  The new version looks like it won't disappoint longtime fans. According to Vtech's sources, the new 3310 will look very similar to the original but will have a slightly updated design that's lighter and thinner.

Its buttons will have more or less the same layout as the original, but may also sport a more modern look - the site says the key size will be "adjusted." The new 3310 will also reportedly come in a few different colors, including red, yellow and green. The phone won't be as "dumb" as before. It will reportedly be a feature phone, meaning it will have limited web browsing and other data-enabled capabilities.

It will not, however, be a full-fledged smartphone (which is to be expected given its size and reported price tag of $63). The display will be both larger and color, which is somewhat of a relief.  Of course, we still have a little longer to wait before we get the official details. Nokia's new phone is expected to launch at an HMD event at Mobile World Congress on Feb. 26.
