Check out the New Nokia 3310 Specifications and Price in Europe

In September 2000, Nokia’s most popular phone as at then, Nokia 3310 was launched. It was a time when iPhone and Nokia ruled as popular handsets that let you play simple games like Snake.

The Nokia 3310 — a beloved phone model that’s been out of date for a decade — has been relaunched as a new, colorful, pared-down phone for sale by HMD Global.

The new phone, which costs just more than $50, debuted at an expo in Barcelona. It’s a “feature phone,” the industry term for a device that doesn’t have the capabilities of a smartphone. But it’s definitely been upgraded since the early 2000s; this model has a camera, a color screen, and a mp3 player.

As for battery life, HMD Global boasts that the phone will last for up to a month on standby. But the company says if you’re using it to talk, you’ll get about 22 hours — which is hardly unprecedented, even for smartphones.

But there’s one trait from the original phone that’s definitely still available: Snake.

Each phone comes loaded with the classic game, now in color.
