It’s the cult device of the 2000s – now the company is bringing back the Nokia 6310. And it even has the game “Snake” on board.
When you think of the early 2000s, you might think of low-cut jeans, CDs and MSN Messenger. One device shaped these years more than few others: The Nokia 6310, which was considered indestructible and included the cult game «Snake». The feeling of the keys under the fingertips and the image of the two hands reaching across the screen when the mobile phone is started have burned themselves into the memories of countless users.
Now HMD Global, to which the Nokia brand belongs, is giving the cult phone a revival almost 20 years later. A new version of the Nokia 6310 should be released in August. This looks pretty similar to the older device, at least in terms of shape. However, the new cell phone comes with a much larger screen and, accordingly, with larger fonts.
Several weeks of battery life
In fact, the screen of the new Nokia 6310 is said by mashable.com to be 2.8 inches tall. However, it is far from being compared with a smartphone screen. For comparison: the screen of the iPhone 12 is 6.1 inches.
In keeping with the old style, the new Nokia will have a numeric keypad. The mobile phone also has a new 0.3-megapixel camera. In addition, the phone is equipped with an FM radio – and of course, the game «Snake» should not be missing. The device also has an 1150 mAh battery. This is not that much compared to modern smartphones, but it is more than enough for the Nokia device. According to Nokia, the battery should last for several weeks. Modern smartphones can only dream of this.
But with that, we have come to the end with the features. In fact, the new Nokia mobile phone is extremely simple. There is a little variation in the choice of colours: The new device should be available in dark green, yellow and black. A blue version is also produced, but this is only intended for the Indian market.
Inexpensive cell phone
The new Nokia is therefore primarily intended for people who mainly need the mobile phone for two things: making calls and writing text messages. The exact price for the phone is not yet known, but it should be pretty cheap for around 40 euros.
It’s not the first Nokia phone to get a revival. For example, there are new versions of the Nokia 3310 and Nokia 8110. The company also offers a range of smartphones. The Nokia C30, which runs Android Go, should come out in August. The device has a 6.82-inch screen and a 13-megapixel camera. The biggest point of sale should be its battery life: According to the company, you only have to charge the device with its 6000 mAh battery every three days.
