With Nokia expected to make a major comeback at one of the biggest annual tech shows - the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017, further leaks of the iconic Nokia 3310 hint that the handset will feature a colour screen instead of the monochrome 84 X 84 display on the old Nokia 3310.
According to accurate leaker Evan Blass, a revived version of the iconic Nokia 3310 will be launched at Mobile World Congress, which will kick off on February 27 in Barcelona. The 2017 edition of Nokia 3310 will cost around €59 (£50), which would be a steal compared to the original Nokia 3310 that cost £119 in 2000.
Evan Blass leaked more details of Nokia 3310 and said that it could be a mashup of the old Nokia 3310 and new 150.

The screen will not be sharp, in order to avoid sapping battery life, but the splash of colour and return of the iconic Snake game will make it more compelling to buy the phone.

The Nokia 3310 won’t run Android OS and will be marketed as a feature phone.
The device is expected to be available in an array of colours, including green, red and yellow and would be lighter than the original Nokia 3310.
The return of Nokia to the handset market had sent people berserk and the relaunch of the revamped Nokia 3310 took the world by storm earlier this month.
