“Initially released in the year 2000, the Nokia 3310 went on to be one of the most successful mobile phones ever. More than 125 million units were sold and, thanks to a small group of Nokia fanatics, this cult handset is making a modern-day comeback,” Nokia said in a statement.

As per the reports, the phone will boast a 41MP PureView camera with Zeiss optics and Xenon flash, and will run a modified version of Windows Phone 8 to fit the unique ‘ClearDiamond’ three-inch touch screen.

Juha Alakarhu, Nokia head of Imaging Technologies, said, “I’m really excited that we’ve found a way to marry our innovative PureView technology with such a beloved device. With its durable design and iconic look, we think even more people will enjoy our signature PureView magic.”

The handset will come pre-installed with MS Office, Xbox Games, Outlook and OneDrive that offers 7GB free cloud storage out of the box.
